Getting to Know Your Designer
In this issue, we examine how fabs work with their design customers, educating them on the critical elements of fabrication needed to be successful, as well as the many tradeoffs involved. How well do you really know your customer? What makes for a closer, more synchronized working relationship?
In this issue, the biggest names in PCB manufacturing share their economic outlook for the upcoming year and beyond. As you will see, they were all bullish on our industry, but there was some apprehension as well. No one wants to get burned by another the supply chain disruption.

Ansys RaptorX Certified by Samsung Foundry for High-Speed DesignDecember 5, 2023 | PRNewswire
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Samsung Foundry certified Ansys' RaptorX on-chip electromagnetic (EM) solution for analyzing high-speed products manufactured with Samsung's 8nm (nanometer) LN08LPP Low Power Plus silicon process. The silicon-validated accuracy of RaptorX™ enables joint customers to harness Samsung's manufacturing process capabilities to achieve greater product reliability and higher performance for 5G, WiFi, automotive, and HPC.
The requirement for EM modeling extends beyond niche applications as chip frequencies continue to increase. The semiconductor industry relies on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tool certification by foundries as a critical step to ensuring the accuracy and reliability of simulation models, which are essential for developing high-speed products. RaptorX's™ accuracy was validated across a multitude of demanding layout geometries, including dense dummy-metal fill, and its models correlated very well with silicon measurements. The ability to reliably predict circuit behavior allows designers to optimize their products with confidence knowing that they will behave as expected and meet performance specifications.
"Our new LN08LPP low-power process responds to a growing demand for high-speed semiconductors," said Sangyun Kim, vice president and head of foundry design technology team at Samsung Electronics. "Our collaboration with Ansys ensures that our customers can rely on leading electromagnetic and multiphysics solutions for today's largest, most sophisticated high-performance designs."
"Our customers are designing the next generation of technology products that rely on the higher frequencies made possible by Samsung's advances in manufacturing technology," said John Lee, vice president and general manager of the electronics, semiconductors, and optics business unit at Ansys. "The certification of RaptorX™ guarantees the required level of accuracy is achieved to ensure that data-intense products meet specifications at all levels."
ROCKA Solutions is excited to announce its participation in the upcoming SMTA Dallas and SMTA Houston Expo & Tech Forums. The SMTA Dallas event will take place on Tuesday, March 19, 2024 at the Plano Event Center, followed by the Houston Expo on Tuesday, March 30, 2024 at the Stafford Centre.
When it comes to business-to-business (B2B) customer service, it is often the little things that matter. While many companies focus on the big things, they ignore the little "softer things" that really create a great customer experience. I truly believe that the higher the technology a company produces, the lousier its customer service. It's as if those companies producing the highest tech products feel they deserve a pass for the easier, always important but more mundane, aspects of customer service.
Aven, a full-service technology provider, is proud to announce its partnership with Comtree Inc., who will serve as stocking distributor for Aven products across Canada.
What is your brand and message, and why is this important? After 40 years running a business, I’ve learned the true core values of marketing and why it is critically important to any business success story. You must define and share your message, align your team, and stay in it for the long term. Here are several tips and examples to help you get there.
DesignCon 2024 was held January 30–February 1 in Silicon Valley, and Design007 Editor Andy Shaughnessy and I were there to experience this important show for PCB and system designers. We are always on the lookout for gems that showcase innovation and cutting-edge technology. Such an opportunity arose through a private tour at DuPont’s Silicon Valley Technology Center in Sunnyvale.
