72 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I MAY 2018 1 Fadi Deek Discusses Mentor's New Power Integrity eBook E At DesignCon 2018, I ran into Mentor's Fadi Deek, the author of both of Mentor's I-007eBooks. We sat down and dis- cussed how the idea for the books came about, as well as some of the power integrity challenges facing PCB design- ers and engineers. 2 Ucamco Releases Specification for Fabrication Documentation in Gerber E The Gerber Job File is straightforward to imple- ment. Partial implementations are allowed, even encouraged. Better a partial job file than no job file at all. Developers can pick and choose from the spec what suits them. Several software suppliers have already committed to support the new Gerber Job File. 3 Zuken Pulling Ahead in Automotive PCB Design E Zuken has been developing PCB design tools for the automotive market for years. With automo- tive electronics worth over $200 billion globally, and growing every day, Zuken is preparing for a brave new world of smart cars, and autonomous and electric vehicles. I spoke with Humair Man - davia, chief strategy officer with Zuken, and asked him about the challenges facing automo- tive PCB designers, and the trends he's seeing in this constantly evolving segment of the industry. 4 Cadence Reports Q1 2018 Financial Results E Cadence Design Systems, Inc. reported its results under new revenue rules, ASC Topic 606, for the first time.
