Nine Dot Connects and Solidworks Roadshow: PCBs in the Age of MechatronicsAugust 16, 2017 | Nine Dot Connects
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
Nine Dot Connects, the only nationwide VAR for the SOLIDWORKS PCB design suite, along with representatives from SOLIDWORKS, will be presenting "The Age of the Fabricated Mechatronics Board" in 12 cities throughout the U.S. starting in September. This lunchtime presentation will review the key innovations that drive the PCB as we know it today, and the migration and inevitable integration of ECAD and MCAD tools. This is a must-see for anyone who wishes to embrace the next generation of technologies that will tightly couple both electrical and mechanical elements of the design.

NTT DOCOMO, INC. (DOCOMO) and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) announced today that they have added two new global partners to their collaborative 6G trials with the world's leading vendors and global operators: telecom operator SK Telecom Co., Ltd (SK Telecom) and Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG (Rohde & Schwarz), a manufacturer of high-frequency high-performance measurement instruments.
In a recent article for Design007 about sustainable PCBs, my colleague Ramon Roche wrote about the various environmental regulatory requirements all of us have to meet every day. He emphasized that regulations are used as a starting point. He stated, “We also require our suppliers to comply with local social and environmental regulations and be ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified, where applicable.” The ambition to create sustainable printed circuit boards (PCBs) is a continuous effort, and no single regulation makes a complete solution. However, applying all these standards together can help to create the most sustainable PCB possible.
It’s a well-known fact that if your company is not growing and moving forward every single day, it is dying. The same rule applies to technology companies: To stay alive, you must grow your technology by keeping up with your customers’ product technology needs. Too many printed circuit board fabricators are dying a slow death because they are not willing or able to invest the time, energy, money, and passion to always work on their technology.
Altair, a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), announced Areus Infocommunication Plc. has joined Altair’s growing channel partner network. Aerus will offer Altair® RapidMiner® – Altair’s data analytics and AI platform – including Altair SLC™, to the Hungarian market.
Defense scientists from Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States collaboratively tested a range of robotic vehicles and their sensors during a trial at Cultana Training Area, South Australia. The Trusted Operation of Robotic Vehicles in a Contested Environment (TORVICE) trial was conducted in fall 2023 to identify and resolve vulnerabilities faced by autonomous systems in a congested electronic warfare environment.
