Reading time ( words)

WHAT:Dr. Walden Rhines, chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics, will be honored as the 2015 Phil Kaufman Award during a presentation and dinner

WHO: Sponsored by the international EDA Consortium (EDAC) and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA)

WHEN: Thursday, November 12, beginning at 6:30 p.m. R.S.V.P. until October 30, space permitting.

WHERE: 4th Street Summit Center, 7th Floor, 88 South 4th Street, San Jose, Calif.

Dr. Rhines is being recognized for growing the EDA and integrated circuit (IC) design industries through his efforts as a leading voice of EDA and for pioneering the evolution of IC design to system-on-chip design.

Seating is limited. Dinner reservations are $175 per person for EDAC and IEEE members or $250 per person for non-members. Sponsorships are available. Registration is open until October 30. To register, go to: http://bit.ly/1Oz1Npb

Additionally, EDAC is hosting an upcoming panel, "Patents and Patent Litigation -- Develop, Strengthen, and Protect Your Intellectual Property," an opportunity for executives and engineers of technology companies to learn from the experts. It will be held Thursday, October 29, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the EDA Consortium/SEMI Global Headquarters, 3081 Zanker Road, San Jose, Calif. This event, the first in a series of panels on legal issues, is open to all EDAC member companies free of charge. Non-EDAC members are welcome to attend based on space availability.

About the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA)

The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) provides a focal point for EDA activities spread across six IEEE societies (Antennas and Propagation, Circuits and Systems, Computer, Electron Devices, Microwave Theory and Techniques, and Solid-State Circuits). The Council sponsors or co-sponsors over a dozen key EDA conferences including: the Design Automation Conference (DAC), Asia and South Pacific Design Automation Conference (ASP-DAC), International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD), Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE), and events at Embedded Systems Week (ESWeek). The Council also publishes IEEE Transactions on Computer Aided Design of Integrated Circuits & Systems (TCAD), IEEE Design & Test (D&T), and IEEE Embedded Systems Letters (ESL). In order to promote the recognition of leading EDA professionals, the Council sponsors the A. Richard Newton, Phil Kaufman, and Ernest S. Kuh Early Career Awards. The Council welcomes new volunteers and local chapters. For more information on CEDA, visit: www.ieee-ceda.org

About the EDA Consortium

The Electronic Design Automation Consortium, EDAC, is the international association representing companies that develop and provide software tools, services, intellectual property and hardware that make it possible for hardware and software engineers to create the world's electronic products. EDAC's member companies deliver the critical technology and solutions needed to design and verify the semiconductors and associated software, packaging and interconnect technologies that enable the manufacturing of these products. Our member companies impact every conceivable segment of the electronics market, from communications, computers, networking, space technology, medical and industrial equipment to consumer electronics and the emerging IoT (Internet of Things) markets.

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Cutting Respins: Journey to the Single-spin PCB

01/07/2021 | Chris Young, The Goebel Company
PCB design is more than a short sprint to the finish line; it is a journey best suited for the prepared adventurer. According to a study by Lifecycle Insights, the average PCB design project requires 2.9 respins. These respins can cost anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars—each! As an engineer/business owner, I find respins frustrating because I would rather spend my time and money applying scientific principles inventing, improving technology, and solving problems. I am not an advocate for perfectionism, but rather I focus on becoming a better adventurer. Sometimes I get to taste the sweet wine that is a single spin PCB. As fellow adventurers, let’s discuss some topics that influence unnecessary return trips on our PCB design journey: simulation, technical reviews, and interest in PCB design.
