Simberian Inc., an industry leader in electromagnetic simulation technology, will participate in the DesignCon 2016 January 19-21 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Simberian will feature demonstrations of updated Simbeor THz electromagnetic signal integrity software.
Simberian will demonstrate the updated Simbeor THz software at Booth #422 at DesignCon. Demonstration will include pre- and post-layout analysis of typical PCB interconnects operating up to 33 Gbps with crosstalk, broadband dielectric and conductor roughness model identification with GMS-parameters and SPP technique up to 50 GHz, and unique electromagnetic field visualization for typical PCB structures.
Simbeor THz is two-time DesignVision award-winning software tool for the physical design of PCB and packaging interconnects operating up to THz frequency range. Simbeor THz provides unique systematic approach to the interconnect analysis that starts from the material model identification and guaranties the analysis to measurement correlation at the end. Updated Simbeor THz is available for customers and trials at www.simberian.com.
DesignCon, produced by UBM Canon, is the world's premier conference for chip, board and systems design engineers in the high-speed communications and semiconductor communities. DesignCon, created by engineers for engineers, takes place annually in Silicon Valley and remains the largest gathering of chip, board and systems designers in the country. This four-day technical conference and expo combines technical paper sessions, tutorials, industry panels, product demos and exhibits from the industry's leading experts and solutions providers.

What is design with manufacturing and what does true DWM look like in operation? In this interview, I-Connect007 columnist Dana Korf explains what it will take to achieve total communication among all the stakeholders in the PCB development cycle. He also stresses the need for everyone involved in PCB design and manufacturing to stop making assumptions, even at the risk of being labeled as “that guy” who asks too many questions.

As mentioned in the May issue of Design007 Magazine, design is performed, at times, in a vacuum. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Whenever circumstances allow, design should be performed by communicating with all stakeholders throughout the design process, hence the emphasis on the word with in DWM. Communication can occur through personal correspondence such as email and voice conversations or through more formal design meetings—in person or through videoconferencing. No matter which means of communication you prefer, it’s important to communicate early and often with stakeholders involved in the downstream processes as you bring your project to realization.

Despite all of the talk about the need for communication between designers and manufacturers, many PCB designers still do not talk with their manufacturers for a variety of reasons. Altium and MacroFab aim to change this dynamic. In this interview, Ted Pawela, chief ecosystem officer of Altium and head of Altium’s Nexar Business Unit, and MacroFab CEO Misha Govshteyn, discuss the new Altimade manufacturing service that Altium is introducing in partnership with MacroFab. Ted and Misha provide an overview of the Altimade process, how it links designers to fabricators, assembly providers, and component distributors, and they explain how it could pave the way for true design with manufacturing, or DWM.
