Reading time ( words)

Polar Instruments, a specialist provider of tools for PCB design, fabrication and test, welcomes Dorine Gurney as President effective January 2018.

Dorine brings her experience from a career spanning Mentor Graphics, Lattice Semiconductor and most recently with Tektronix. Dorine takes over the reins from Ken Taylor who is retiring from day to day activities, Ken will remain on the board of Polar Instruments Ltd as a non executive director.

“I am excited to welcome Dorine to the Polar team,” said Taylor. “She brings a wealth of experience and a track record as someone who makes things happen. Her background from software engineering through silicon companies, and more recently in RF measurement brings a wealth of new experience into the Polar team.” 

Polar is exhibiting at Design Con booth #605, offering an excellent opportunity to meet the Polar team.

Cadence Design Systems recently integrated more of its Sigrity capabilities into the front end of its PCB design tools. During DesignCon, Chris Banton of EMA Design Automation spoke with me about how this drive for “model-less analysis” benefits the PCB designer who can now access signal and power integrity, DFM, and electrical rule checking functionality early in the design process and have fewer issues later.

Todd Westerhoff Discusses His New Position and Much More

03/07/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At DesignCon, I met with our old friend Todd Westerhoff, a veteran signal integrity engineer. Todd joined Mentor, a Siemens Business, since we last spoke. We discussed his new job responsibilities, his drive to get more designers and engineers to use SI tools, and the increasing value of cost-reduced design techniques versus overdesigning PCBs.
