This paper is the third in a series that describes the journey of Optimum Design Associates (ODA) from initial concept and planning through implementation of Lean NPI. This third paper examines data from before implementation and compares it to the data that has been compiled over more than a year of using Lean NPI as a best practice. ODA utilizes Mentor’s layout tools and Valor NPI DFM tools.

The I-Connect007 team attended UP Media Group’s PCB West 2018 Conference and Exhibition in Santa Clara, California. I have been attending this event for many years, and every year the show is better than the year before. This year was no exception.

Still Using 1980s Formats for Design Data Handoff?

03/09/2018 | Hemant Shah and Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
The IPC-2581 format was created in the early 2000s with the merger of two competing formats: ODB++ and GENCAM. The new format, the brainchild of the late Dieter Bergman, languished with no adoption until 2011, when a small group of companies created the IPC-2581 Consortium with the goal of getting this open, neutral and intelligent format adopted. The consortium has been growing steadily in recent years. Its membership now includes more than 100 associate members in addition to its more than 90 corporate members.

IoT: Let’s Put the “A” Back into EDA

03/03/2018 | Ben Jordan, Altium
If I say IoT, most people today will immediately conjure up some notion in their mind. This is especially true in the engineering community, where many of us are hanging the future of our careers on the Utopian vision of a clean, beautiful environment with hidden networks and sensors everywhere.
