Key Facts:

  • Accurate PCB stackup data can be shared between OEM designers and
  • PCB fabricators in the local language of key markets
  • Increases the ease of use for customers in Germany, Japan and China
  • Exports stackup documentation in a range of industry-standard formats
  • Supports fast optimisation of PCB costs and manufacturing yields
  • Consistent communication throughout the supply chain

Polar Instruments - a specialist provider of tools for high speed PCB design, fabrication and test - has launched new language versions of Speedstack, the industry’s best-selling PCB layer stackup design system. In addition to English, Speedstack is now available in German, Japanese, simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese versions.

“Customer demand was a strong factor in our decision to offer Speedstack in multiple language versions,” explains Martyn Gaudion, CEO of Polar Instruments. “One of the key strengths of the Speedstack system is its ability to accurately document detailed specifications for each layer in a PCB stackup. Providing OEM designers and PCB fabricators with the ability to share these specifications in their local language further enhances the speed and ease of using the Speedstack system for PCB stackup design.”

Speedstack is already licensed with OEM designers, PCB technologists and PCB fabricators worldwide, providing an ultra-fast process for creating and accurately documenting stackups for High-Density Interconnect (HDI) and flex-rigid PCBs. The system also allows PCB fabricators to fine-tune the stackup design by assessing the impact of different PCB materials on cost, performance and manufacturing yield. The accurate stackup data generated by Speedstack can be exported in different industry-standard formats and shared with companies throughout the PCB supply-chain.

Smart Design Data Is Essential for Industry 4.0 Manufacturing

05/10/2019 | Patrick McGoff and David Wiens, Mentor, a Siemens business
Almost all of the conversation regarding Industry 4.0 is centered on the manufacturing floor, which is where the effect of the initiative is most felt initially. Little attention is given to the starting data for manufacturing—the data that comes from design. However, you can’t have smart manufacturing if your process begins with dumb data. As Pink Floyd said, “You can’t have your pudding if you don’t eat your meat!”

An Experienced Millennial on Hiring the Next Generation

04/24/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During DesignCon, I met with Geoffrey Hazelett, VP of sales for Polar Instruments. Even though he has been in EDA for a few years, Geoffrey is still in his thirties, which makes him a youthful cherub in this industry. I asked Geoffrey what he thinks about the new PCB designers and EEs entering this field, and what more can be done to expose young people to the world of PCBs.
