As companies face tougher and tougher competition, the secrets behind their products’ competitive edge resides in the design IP. But most companies have little or no design data security. And as product design operations become global, IP protection becomes more challenging. Companies with ITAR design content face national security concerns. Enabling design or IP access on an individual or team basis is simply not available in many design environments today.
In line with this, Zuken will be holding a webinar titled “Improve Design Data Security Across Your Enterprise” on October 4, 2017. This webinar will examine the challenges behind design data security and explore some of the solutions available today. Some of the topics will include:
- a project-oriented design approach;
- limited user visibility on the library and design level; and,
- how to physically locate IP.

At PCB West, Zuken shared a booth with Nano Dimension. Zuken has been working with Nano Dimension for some time, and adding support for 3D printing and nanotechnology to its design tool platforms. I sat down with Zuken’s Humair Mandavia and Nano Dimension’s Simon Fried to learn more about this alliance, and to find out more about this odd-looking box being demonstrated in Zuken’s booth.

Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.

Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”
