Zuken Launches Latest Version of E3.series Software


Reading time ( words)

Zuken's latest version of E3.series—complete solution for electrical and fluid design—offers engineers a live-feel, collaborative environment, along with a range of individual and multi-user usability and productivity features, such as dynamic block functionality and a tabular terminal editor.

The E3.series 2016 has been enhanced to offer a smoother user experience for today’s globally dispersed design teams. Users can work simultaneously on one sheet and instantly see in the sheet tree if another user has opened it, as their user name is visible. And with the latest collaboration technology, including Oracle updates, all objects can now be accessed online. Unique to E3.series, hierarchy is available within a block and offers numerous productivity benefits. Dynamic blocks can be created by simply dragging components or symbols from the library onto a block, drawing internal connections as well connections to the outside, and creating hierarchies by placing hierarchy blocks ports.

The software's new cabinet layout features include automatic placement optimization when inserting, changing or deleting components; placing complete preconfigured terminal strips; and sorting terminal blocks according to customer criteria, as well as defining cabinet layout models for block components in the library.

Finally, the tabular editing functionality has been extended to allow terminal strips across a whole project to be managed and edited directly within a table, with modifications made automatically following changes.

Automatic adjustments are made after making changes, such as swapping components or reordering terminal strips. Also, new integrations with manufacturers' configuration tools make configuring and ordering strips quick and easy.

What Happens When You Assume?

07/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
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.

Master the Art of Communication With Manufacturers

06/30/2022 | Kyle Burk, KBJ Engineering
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.

Altimade Puts Designers and Manufacturers Together

06/24/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
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.
