EMA Launches Match the Circuits Contest

Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation®, a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, is launching a Match the Circuits Contest through the end of June.

Engineers often utilize capacitors and inductors to filter out unwanted signals, however if the wrong configuration is chosen, it can yield opposite results. This contest puts engineers' knowledge of filters to the test and highlights an element that’s essential to bringing a successful product to market: ensuring correct circuit function early in the design process. SPICE simulators like, PSpice help engineers ensure correct circuit operation through up front simulation and allows them to make informed decisions regarding electrical behavior, quickly identify errors, preserve reliability, and improve performance.

To enter, participants must identify and match circuits to their associated waveforms for a chance to will $100.00 Amazon gift card.  The contest will be available for submissions until June 30, 2022, with winners announced on July 1, 2022.

DownStream Flexes in Rigid-Flex

11/14/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During PCB West, I caught up with DownStream Technologies co-founder Joe Clark and Senior Product Marketing Manager Mark Gallant. We discussed some of their latest tool updates, including a greater focus on bringing post-processing functionality, such as inter-layer analysis capability, to rigid-flex circuits. Joe also offered a look at global design trends going into 2023, as more engineers take on PCB designer roles while senior designers are retiring.

Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson Shares Insights From New PCB Design Book

10/27/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
There’s designing the “perfect” circuit board and then there’s designing a board that is “perfect for manufacturing.” While seasoned designers and design engineers understand many of the nuances, PCB fabricator Sunstone Circuits has just published a new book specifically for new designers who have the knowledge of design but are still learning what it means to get the board manufactured. Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson takes the reader through a series of situations that should help clarify what’s happening in the fabrication process and how to adjust a board design to be better suited for manufacturing.

Forming Standards for Ultra HDI

10/25/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
To get the latest news about ultra high-density interconnections (UHDI), we checked in with Jan Pedersen, NCAB Group’s director of technology. Jan is co-chair of IPC D-33AP, and a great source of overall DFM expertise as well. We asked him to give us a snapshot of UHDI in the industry, where we’re headed, and what this means to PCB designers.
