inspectAR joins Cadence Design Systems

Reading time ( words)

inspectAR has officially been acquired by Cadence Design Systems, the market leader in Electronic Design Automation software and services. inspectAR will continue to grow and operate independently from its headquarters in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

“For the past 1.5 years, inspectAR has been on a tear, adding immense value to hardware teams and engineers around the world,” says Mihir Shah, one of the inspectAR founders. “We’ve amassed thousands of users, teamed up with some of the biggest names in the industry, and built some of the most innovative technology to really bring a new lens into the hardware development space — and we’re just getting started.

The deal benefits inspectAR users in several ways, Mihir says.

“We are going to continue keeping the platform entirely vendor-agnostic, and adding support for even more EDA software and lab tools in the near future. Whether you use Cadence or another EDA tool to design PCB’s, we want to accelerate your hardware development. We now have far more resources to achieve our goals, and a far broader reach to get valuable insight from customers working in every part of the hardware sphere.”

What You Need to Know About a PCB Design Career

01/02/2020 | John R. Watson, CID, Legrand
Never stop learning. Why? Because the industry never stops changing. Those that continuously stay in that state of learning are the ones who succeed. The old saying “Knowledge is power,” often attributed to Sir Francis Bacon, has never been truer. Fortunately, there is never a lack of things to learn. Don’t ever become apathetic about learning. Make a point of keeping a running list of ideas or subjects that you want to research, and then purposely set aside time in your week strictly to study and learn about these things anywhere you can.
