“I am proud, but humbled, with the accomplishments we have made, the respect that we have received, and the partnerships we have established in the industry,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “Our fantastic team at EMA strives to serve our current customers, as well as attract new customers with our commitment for continued excellence.”

EMA began a relationship with Cadence® Design Systems in 1998 selling the Cadence Studio-level Allegro product line. Today EMA sells both the Cadence Allegro and OrCAD product lines, as well as several EMA products, including Ultra Librarian®, TimingDesigner®, and Circuitspace®, to expand and enhance the user experience. EMA is also proud to have earned the Cadence Channel Partner of the Year award multiple times, given to a single recipient among Cadence's 50+ global channel partners each year.

In addition to Cadence, EMA has secured other partnerships in the industry, including SiliconExpert, DigiKey, and Arena, to name a few. Each of these alliances builds and strengthens the EMA portfolio, enabling EMA to provide a robust and effective EDA design solution for its customers. The industry has recognized EMA's accomplishments earning them a place in the Inc 500 list two years in a row.

EMA is excited to be celebrating 30 years of innovation and wants to show some appreciation to its customers, while having a bit of fun. There will be weekly 'swag bag' giveaways filled with EMA merchandise, and entrants will then be eligible for the grand prize, a year of eLearning valued at $900, being drawn on October 31, 2019. Customers can also look forward to anniversary related blog posts, customer quotes, and 'Ask Me Anything' sessions on Facebook.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

04/08/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Spring has definitely sprung, and the trade show season continues to roll right along. Managing Editor Nolan Johnson just returned from DesignCon 2022, and as he says in his review, the attendance was up from last year’s event, which had been at the McEnery Convention Center in the waning days of the pandemic. I hope we’re getting back to normal, whatever that means. This week, we have a few articles about Industry 4.0, as well as a column on setting your priorities. We have a cool article about methods for measuring the breakdown of resins during multiple thermal laminations, and a conversation with an EMS company president who realized that he was actually running a data collection firm that happened to make circuit boards. Can you say the same about your own company?

DesignCon 2022: Back to Business as Usual

04/07/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
It was something of a homecoming as DesignCon returned to the Santa Clara Convention Center this week for DesignCon 2022. It’s been two years since the last DesignCon was held in this venue just before the pandemic began. I attended DesignCon 2021 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in July of last year, and I could see a big improvement in attendance as DesignCon moved back into its usual venue.

Setting Goals for Your PCB Design Education

03/30/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
For our March issue of Design007 Magazine on planning your design education, we spoke with Bill Brooks of Nordson ASYMTEK, a long-time PCB designer, CID instructor, and fantastic sculptor. He is also one of the first to ever teach standalone PCB design courses in a college. After he earned his certification to teach the IPC CID workshops, Bill served as an adjunct instructor at Palomar College near San Diego, teaching beginning and advanced PCB design classes for 10 years. I asked Bill to share his thoughts on setting up a PCB design education career plan, and the need to stay on top of your game as a PCB designer.
