Anant Adke of Siemens EDA Joins Si2 Board of Directors

Reading time ( words)

Anant Adke, vice president of Engineering, Siemens EDA, has been elected to the Silicon Integration Initiative board of directors. He replaces Juan Rey, who retired from Siemens EDA in December.

Adke manages the Siemens EDA—formerly Mentor Graphics—Calibre engineering group, which develops high-performance, compute-intensive software addressing the physical verification needs of the semiconductor industry’s leading-edge nodes. He joined Mentor in 1995. During his tenure at Calibre, Adke has managed engineering groups responsible for implementing interfaces to industry standard design creation tools and databases such as OpenAccess and represented Mentor Graphics on the OpenAccess Coalition. 

“From its very inception, I have been a strong supporter of Si2’s mission of providing interoperability standards to drive EDA design tools and flows in addressing the needs of the IC industry,” Anant said. “I am excited to serve on the Si2 board and promote its efforts at fostering standards-led solutions to interoperability across the EDA industry.”

Anant holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and a master’s degree in computer engineering from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

“The addition of Anant continues the strong support Siemens EDA has provided Si2 over the years,” said John Ellis, Si2 president and CEO. “As a longstanding board member, Siemens EDA strongly supports tool interoperability and the value and cost-savings it provides for the industry. I look forward to Anant’s insights and contributions to the Si2 board.”

We’re in the middle of show season, and it certainly “shows.” Thank you very much. I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your wait staff. This week, we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items, and much of it centered on trade shows. Technical Editor Dan Feinberg brings us a report from CES 2023. IPC announced the winners of the Best Technical Paper awards for IPC APEX EXPO 2023. And we have an interview with Altium’s Rea Callender about the company’s educational efforts at APEX and around the globe.

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

The youngsters are back in school, and we’re all back to work. The water is back on for most of us in Atlanta; when temps dropped down to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, our pipes started bursting left and right. After a Christmas dinner with no water, I have a new appreciation for H2O. It’s been a busy week, and we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items. In this week’s top five, we have news about the market in Southeast Asia, a look at what the CHIPS Act really entails, a deep dive into CMMC, and a peek at how printed electronics developers are using flexible circuit concepts to facilitate PEC. We also say goodbye to a Top Gun PCB designer who left us way too soon.

Designing a Sustainable Future

While it may be traditionally considered a PCB fab and assembly show, IPC APEX EXPO is quickly becoming a destination for PCB designers and design engineers. Flipping through this year’s schedule, I counted 15 Professional Development and Technical Conference classes that focus on PCB design, as well as several fabrication classes that many of you should probably take. I checked in with Carlos Plaza, IPC’s senior director of educational development, to discuss the organization’s drive to present more PCB design curriculum at the upcoming show and how the show can give designers the tools they need to overcome the many challenges currently facing the industry.
