64 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I JUNE 2018 1 Mark Thompson: What Designers Need to Know about Fab E Mark Thompson wants to help PCB designers. He's seen it all in CAM support at Proto- tron Circuits: the incomplete or inaccurate data packages, boards that are unnecessar- ily complex or over-constrained, and so much more. Dan Beaulieu asked Mark to explain why it's so important for designers to com- municate with their fabricators, and why they need to get out of the office and visit a board shop every now and then. 2 PCB Design Software Market to Reach $4B by 2023 E The PCB design software market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 26% from 2018 to 2023 to reach $4 billion by the end of the forecast period, according to a new report by analyst firm Market Research Future (MRFR). The European PCB design software market is estimated to grow due to the investments from automotive companies to adopt the software. 3 Beyond Design: A Review of HyperLynx DRC E Free software usu- ally comes at a price: the results might be inaccu- rate, the software might be time- consuming to set up and use, and the tool might overlook issues that require a revision to mitigate. But HyperL- ynx DRC is the exception to the rule. 4 Freedom CAD Celebrates 15th Anniversary E May 16, 2018 marks the 15th anniversary of Freedom CAD Services. Freedom CAD was founded on this day by Lou and Lauren Prim- mer, pioneers in the PCB CAD industry. They launched Freedom CAD when Plexus decided to divest the Nashua, NH design center in 2003.
