Panasonic, Zuken Complete Agreement for Electronic Design Solution


Reading time ( words)

Zuken Inc. is proud to announce that Panasonic Corporation has ordered the Zuken CR-8000 series of solutions for leading-edge electronic designs and DS-CR design data management systems for its Imaging Business Unit sites under the Entertainment and Communication Business Division in Japan and China (Xiamen). The contract is equivalent to roughly 150 million yen.

Panasonic has been working with Zuken, Inc. to configure a data management system for electronic components that enables sharing and use throughout the entire company. The Imaging Business Unit’s complete migration to Zuken solutions from a third-party design environment for printed circuit boards will accelerate the circulation of component information and product development data across product and business segments at Panasonic. This migration is expected to usher in broader sharing of CAD libraries, electronic components, and technology.

Tatsuo Ogawa, Executive Officer and Group Chief Technology Officer of Panasonic, described why the Imaging Business Unit decided to migrate to Zuken solutions by saying, “The evolution of electronic components is remarkable. We must quickly replace old parts with new components. Standardizing our electronic components and more widely sharing designs is an extremely important challenge at Panasonic because we develop such a wide range of products.”

Jinya Katsube, President and COO of Zuken, Inc., added, “Panasonic uses Zuken solutions across all of its product lines. We will strive to become a partner who will contribute more largely to Panasonic’s product development beyond the boundaries of its product lines.”

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.
