Reading time ( words)

Key Facts:

  • Accurate PCB stackup data can be shared between OEM designers and
  • PCB fabricators in the local language of key markets
  • Increases the ease of use for customers in Germany, Japan and China
  • Exports stackup documentation in a range of industry-standard formats
  • Supports fast optimisation of PCB costs and manufacturing yields
  • Consistent communication throughout the supply chain

Polar Instruments - a specialist provider of tools for high speed PCB design, fabrication and test - has launched new language versions of Speedstack, the industry’s best-selling PCB layer stackup design system. In addition to English, Speedstack is now available in German, Japanese, simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese versions.

“Customer demand was a strong factor in our decision to offer Speedstack in multiple language versions,” explains Martyn Gaudion, CEO of Polar Instruments. “One of the key strengths of the Speedstack system is its ability to accurately document detailed specifications for each layer in a PCB stackup. Providing OEM designers and PCB fabricators with the ability to share these specifications in their local language further enhances the speed and ease of using the Speedstack system for PCB stackup design.”

Speedstack is already licensed with OEM designers, PCB technologists and PCB fabricators worldwide, providing an ultra-fast process for creating and accurately documenting stackups for High-Density Interconnect (HDI) and flex-rigid PCBs. The system also allows PCB fabricators to fine-tune the stackup design by assessing the impact of different PCB materials on cost, performance and manufacturing yield. The accurate stackup data generated by Speedstack can be exported in different industry-standard formats and shared with companies throughout the PCB supply-chain.

I recently spoke with Fabian Winkler, product marketing manager for Altium 365. He and guest speaker Casey Sirotnak of Forrester are co-hosting a free webinar on May 17 titled “Unveil the Total Economic Impact of Altium 365.” The webinar will include data from a Forrester case study that examined the economic benefits of using the Altium 365 environment, such as the number of hours saved per designer per year. I asked Fabian to discuss the focus of the webinar, who should attend, and some of the benefits of this environment that allows ECAD and MCAD engineers to collaborate seamlessly.
