Frontline Announces InStack Design


Reading time ( words)

Frontline PCB Solutions, an Orbotech-Mentor Graphics company, today announced the launch of InStack Design, an industry-proven solution for designing complex stackups in minutes, taking all fabrication and SI constraints into account and enabling seamless electronic collaboration with board fabricators.

“Efficient designer-fabricator collaboration is essential in a world where time to market is central to the success of your business,” said Yovav Sameah, president of Frontline PCB Solutions. “Our parent company, Mentor Graphics, has a profound understanding of designer needs. Thanks to the strong cooperation between the two companies it seems logical to bring Frontline’s industry-proven PCB design planning tools to designers, allowing them to concentrate on functionality and signal integrity. Designers can now plan boards using the same tools as fabricators, shortening lead-time by eliminating lengthy exchanges with manufacturers. Designing stackups with the right tradeoffs will dramatically reduce time to market and improve product quality.”

InStack Design is a comprehensive solution for flex and rigid-flex stackups, integrating suppliers, materials, and processes to ensure manufacturability, seamless integration of design and fabrication, and accurate stackup design. Using standard industry materials or material libraries provided by the PCB suppliers themselves, designers can model and verify thickness, impedance, and losses quickly and precisely, even for the most complex multi-zone structures.  InStack Design accelerates manufacturing and meets board requirements to produce more efficient, higher quality PCBs.

The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire, housing the world's largest collection of historic British cars, was venue for the 2022 Annual Symposium of the Institute of Circuit Technology on June 8, which attracted a substantial gathering of manufacturers and suppliers from the UK printed circuit industry. ICT chair Emma Hudson reflected upon lessons learned during the pandemic lock-down and how the industry has successfully adapted to circumstances. She commented that the UK’s PCB fabricators are extremely busy, as she introduced an outstanding conference programme including a keynote from the incomparable Happy Holden.

Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?
