Recently acquired by Hindley Circuits, Irridian Industrial Electronics, has invested in introducing state-of-the-art PCB design software to significantly enhance the accuracy and speed of its design services.
The new Cadstar and Altium design software platforms have modern and interactive user interfaces. The cutting-edge design software platforms will allow us to design complex multilayered printed circuit boards while also incorporating high speed design requirements.
Both the Cadstar and Altium platforms allow all aspects of the PCB design cycle to be addressed – right from schematic capture and PCB layout through to documentation and simulation – meaning that our PCB designers can be seamlessly connected to all elements of the design process. We have already seen the benefits of this thanks to a rapid increase of speed and accuracy across the whole process.
We have been greatly impressed by our existing customers interest in Irridians design services and look forward to sharing with them the benefits that the new software will bring to our service offering. We are currently looking to hire an additional experienced PCB Designer in the very near future

I recently spoke with Todd Westerhoff, product marketing manager for signal integrity software tools at Siemens. We discussed a new capability called HyperLynx Apps that offers a new take on traditional signal and power integrity analysis, and how that fits in with the Siemens plan to put SI and PI tools into the hands of more designers early in the design cycle.

Electrical and mechanical engineers may be working on the same product development teams, but they speak different languages, and they have completely different objectives. As a result, these folks almost never use the same software tools.
But Cadence’s new Celsius Thermal Solver is an exception to the rule. In a new CadenceTECHTALK webinar, “How Static and Dynamic IR Drop Analysis Can Help PCB Designs and Challenges,” product manager Melika Roshandell and SerDes SI/PI engineer Karthik Mahesh Rao explain how the EE and ME can both use the Celsius Thermal Solver to achieve their disparate objectives.

Today’s PCB design engineers have more layout and analysis tools at their disposal than ever before. Over the years we’ve seen layout tools become more automated, rules-driven, and more integrated. Now we even have integration between design tools from different vendors and ranging across domains, starting with basic circuit design, and spanning up to PLM and ERP integration. It really is a great time to be a designer.
