Altair Names EDA Expert Channel Partner for FranceFebruary 5, 2024 | Altair
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Altair, a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), announced that EDA Expert has joined Altair’s growing channel partner network and will offer the full suite of Altair’s electronic design solutions, part of the Altair® HyperWorks® design and simulation platform. As an exclusive supplier of software dedicated to electronics and embedded systems within France, EDA Expert uses its skills to offer its customers great tools and a global vision from design to manufacturing.
“We are honored to welcome EDA Expert to our global channel partner community, covering the French market for electronics and embedded systems,” said Kimon Afsaridis, managing director of Eastern Europe and vice president of indirect EMEA sales, Altair. “This strategic alliance spans the French market and will contribute to both companies’ continued growth in the fast-growing engineering and simulation market. Our customers will benefit from EDA Expert’s expertise, local market presence, and industry know-how, which will allow them to accelerate time to market, compete more efficiently, and drive innovation.”
“We are very pleased to add Altair’s best-in-class solutions to the range of software already available to our clients,” said Victor Truong, managing director, EDA Expert. “We are proud to be able to represent a leading global technology company like Altair and look forward to offering world-class innovation and technical expertise to our customers.”
EDA Expert was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in Arcueil, France. The company provides technical expertise and training and helps manufacturers define suitable solutions for the design and manufacturing of electronic systems and the analysis of electronic boards. The applications include software integration and one-off projects, support during the design of high-speed signals, signal integrity, analysis and simulation, thermal analysis, mean time between failures (MTBF) estimates, design for manufacturing (DFM) manufacturability analysis, and more. Additionally, EDA Expert’s trainers are electronics engineers each with more than 20 years of experience, are certified by respected organizations such as Altium, and are also IPC certified interconnect designers (CID).
With the seemingly endless ways that electronic products are worming their way into our lives, what was once “nice to own” is increasingly considered indispensable. The capabilities of these products have been driven by relentless improvements at every level of the manufacturing chain, from individual transistors (which are approaching Angstrom levels) to systems the size of buildings supporting Bitcoin mining and increasingly distributed AI products.
Indium Corporation to Showcase Proven EV Products and High-Reliability Alloys at Productronica China02/28/2024 | Indium Corporation
As a materials pioneer and trusted partner in electric vehicle (EV) and e-Mobility manufacturing, Indium Corporation is proud to showcase its high-reliability alloys and soldering solutions at Productronica China, March 20-22, in Shanghai.
Package designers and chip designers assist the PCB layout engineer by including embedded capacitors on-chip and in-package to address the entire range of frequencies where decoupling is needed. As more electronics companies take a leading role in chip and package design, there is a need to determine the appropriate amount of capacitance needed to ensure low PDN impedance throughout broad frequency ranges. This article will look at the different types of capacitors that can be used as embedded components in PCBs and in chips/packages.
Cadence’s digital and custom/analog flows are certified on the Intel 18A process technology. Cadence® design IP supports this node from Intel Foundry, and the corresponding process design kits (PDKs) are delivered to accelerate the development of a wide variety of low-power consumer, high-performance computing (HPC), AI and mobile computing designs.
Intel Corp. (INTC) launched Intel Foundry as a more sustainable systems foundry business designed for the AI era and announced an expanded process roadmap designed to establish leadership into the latter part of this decade.
