Reading time ( words)

Kardinal Microsystems has joined Zuken USA’s Startup Partner Program aimed at early to mid-stage companies developing electronic-based products. The new program provides access to state-of-the-art PCB and IC packaging development tools, with special terms designed to accommodate the development needs of an early-stage company.

Based in Burlington, Vermont, Kardinal Microsystems was founded in 2015 to develop a superior solution platform for IoT applications. Pascal Nsame, CEO and Founder, said: “We have extremely ambitious goals that require state-of-the-art design solutions and a partner with a proven history of technological innovation. Zuken USA has the technology we need; particularly in the area of chip/package/board co-design. This partnership is essential for our business to succeed.”

Kardinal Microsystems has developed “the smallest, fastest, smartest, most efficient IoT data platform solution available in the industry at the device level”.

Kent McLeroth, President and CEO of Zuken USA, said: “We are committed to working with early and mid-stage companies, such as Kardinal Microsystems. Our Startup Partner Program enabled us to work with Pascal and Kardinal Microsystems as a founding partner to develop a program that would provide them access to Zuken’s CR-8000 development platform while still meeting their startup needs. Helping early stage companies achieve big things is a win-win for everyone.”

Kardinal Microsystems worked closely with Zuken USA on the structure of and terms of the Startup Partner Program, offering insight into the incubation and acceleration phases of early product prototype development.

As part of the program Zuken USA offers CR-8000, the industry’s only 3D, product-centric design solution that offers architecture design, concurrent 3D multi-board support, ECAD/MCAD co-design and chip/package/board co-design. This is followed by training and deployment assistance.

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.
