EMA Design Automation and Hawk Ridge Systems Reshape Engineering Software Landscape with Full ECAD/MCAD ConvergenceFebruary 7, 2024 | EMA Design Automation
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
EMA Design Automation and Hawk Ridge Systems entered a strategic partnership to give customers a full ECAD/MCAD design experience, leveraging best-in-class tools and support for the entire electronic product design flow.
EMA Design Automation, Inc. is the world's premier electronic design automation (EDA) value-added reseller (VAR). Hawk Ridge Systems is the leading provider of 3D design, manufacturing and 3D printing solutions in the U.S. and Canada.
As electronic product design continues to grow in complexity and scale, the traditional silos between electrical and mechanical domains are inhibiting teams from meeting their design goals and timelines. End-to-end solutions are needed, along with deep domain expertise, to help customers develop fully connected flows to solve their design challenges.
“As the ECAD and MCAD domains continue to converge, there is a great need to help customers manage the realities and requirements of a fully integrated design environment across the electrical and mechanical product development process,” said Manny Marcano, President and CEO of EMA Design Automation. “Partnering with Hawk Ridge Systems brings two companies together with unmatched expertise in electrical and mechanical design to help customers confidently deliver successfully electromechanical products on the first pass.”
Through this partnership, Hawk Ridge Systems will now sell and distribute Cadence and EMA ECAD design solutions to their customers. These state-of-the-art solutions were developed with 30+ years of electronics design expertise and support from EMA.
“Our customers are looking for solutions to help them bridge the gap between MCAD and ECAD to operate more efficiently and effectively as they design their products,” said Dale Ford, CEO at Hawk Ridge Systems. “This partnership with EMA allows us to instantly provide expert guidance and support to our customers for the electronics in their electromechanical systems. We're excited to be working with EMA."”
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.
