Kardinal Microsystems Joins Zuken USA Startup Partner ProgramAugust 18, 2016 | Zuken
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Kardinal Microsystems has joined Zuken USA’s Startup Partner Program aimed at early to mid-stage companies developing electronic-based products. The new program provides access to state-of-the-art PCB and IC packaging development tools, with special terms designed to accommodate the development needs of an early-stage company.
Based in Burlington, Vermont, Kardinal Microsystems was founded in 2015 to develop a superior solution platform for IoT applications. Pascal Nsame, CEO and Founder, said: “We have extremely ambitious goals that require state-of-the-art design solutions and a partner with a proven history of technological innovation. Zuken USA has the technology we need; particularly in the area of chip/package/board co-design. This partnership is essential for our business to succeed.”
Kardinal Microsystems has developed “the smallest, fastest, smartest, most efficient IoT data platform solution available in the industry at the device level”.
Kent McLeroth, President and CEO of Zuken USA, said: “We are committed to working with early and mid-stage companies, such as Kardinal Microsystems. Our Startup Partner Program enabled us to work with Pascal and Kardinal Microsystems as a founding partner to develop a program that would provide them access to Zuken’s CR-8000 development platform while still meeting their startup needs. Helping early stage companies achieve big things is a win-win for everyone.”
Kardinal Microsystems worked closely with Zuken USA on the structure of and terms of the Startup Partner Program, offering insight into the incubation and acceleration phases of early product prototype development.
As part of the program Zuken USA offers CR-8000, the industry’s only 3D, product-centric design solution that offers architecture design, concurrent 3D multi-board support, ECAD/MCAD co-design and chip/package/board co-design. This is followed by training and deployment assistance.

At DesignCon, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with Brad Griffin, product marketing group director for the System Analysis Group at Cadence Design Systems. Brad explains how this analysis tool enables designers to address SI and PI issues early in the design process, before they become costly errors, and why he believes his late co-worker Dennis Nagel would be proud to see his efforts come to fruition.
Sondrel, a leading provider of ultra-complex chips for leading global technology brands, announces that it has secured two new contracts to supply Design Consultancy Services for a Network processor chip and a Radio Transceiver chip.
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.
