J VanDomelen Mentor Graphics’ free, must-attend mil/aero event is less than one month away. The company has announced the event’s agenda, which includes an impressive 23 sessions. The beauty of it is that attendees, of which I am one, can essentially build their own event, tailoring the day to their exact individual needs. To simplify things, however, Mentor Graphics officials have devised three breakout tracks … Read More

Mentor Graphics has just revealed the program for its upcoming Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum (IESF) 2011. If you’re not familiar with IESF, it’s one of the world’s leading events for design engineers, engineering management, and executives in the military and aerospace (mil/aero) industry. Even better, it’s free and in a great summer locale: the Marriott Long Beach hotel, in Long Beach, Calif.

J VanDomelen Prices keep rising and rising. Virtually everything costs more today than even just a couple months ago. In fact, a quick glance at the inflation rate (http://www.usinflationcalculator.com/inflation/historical-inflation-rates/) reveals that it doubled between Jan. 2011 and April 2011—and the upward trend continues. Times are tough. Budgets are tight. Yet, mil/aero professionals still want and need to … Read More

Mike Jensen A few weeks ago I wrote a post titled Pushbutton Cars in which I lamented my experience with a rental car whose ignition was activated by a pushbutton, rather than a key in the ignition switch. I still don’t understand all the reasons for using the pushbutton, but I suppose it met some marketing requirement or design specification. Since I don’t see pushbuttons in many cars, it appears the idea … Read More

The next installment of Mentor Graphics’ Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum (IESF) is scheduled for June 2 in Detroit, Michigan. As I’ve mentioned before, we typically host two or three IESF events each year in different cities around the United States. Topics vary a bit, depending on the location, but all are chock-full of technical content. The June 2 event focuses on automotive design and

Paul Johnston Aren’t we just all happy people to be living in the information golden age? Maybe it just seems good now, and in a couple of centuries this will be seen as the iron age of information technology, one step on from the hunter-gatherers’ life of gleaning scraps of wisdom from the library shelves. At our disposal is a mighty array of data sources, and still, it sometimes is very significant … Read More

Paul Johnston Out and about on the last day of January I saw a house which still  sported the snowflake outdoor lights and the colored lights on the fir tree. That’s a little late, the second month just starting. And the year seems to be moving quickly to me. Capital 2010.2 released and already installed on a few computers I can mention and people are exploring the Capital Modular XC harness design capabilities … Read More

Paul Johnston Since I began working in the realm of software systems for electrical interconnect design I have seen increased user choice in on-and off-road vehicles. I have read the technical papers and marvelled at the memorable phrase “combinatorial explosion” used to refer to the options a buyer of a high-end new passenger car is able to order. Choice is good right? If you are fortunate enough to be able to … Read More

Paul Johnston The heading sentence suitably filled out is a useful standby next time your manager asks you about why you have wandered into his office at 11 in the morning smelling of fried okra and stale garlic with a bemused look on your face. Hmm. On second thoughts, don’t - just stay out of her/his way and make yourself inconspicuous. In the last few weeks I have been experiencing one illustration after another … Read More

John Day One of the highlights for me at IESF for the past three years now has been Paul Hansen’s presentation. You may know that Paul is the editor and publisher of The Hansen Report on Automotive Electronics (http://hansenreport.com), a highly respected newsletter. IESF attendees this year are receiving a free, three-month subscription. There has been a lot of negativity in the news lately, some of which … Read More

IESF Recap

Posted by Mike Jensen

Mike Jensen In my last blog post, I highlighted Mentor Graphics’ IESF Automotive 2010 event which is now officially in the history books. While I didn’t get to sit-in on all of the presentations (I was working a demo stand, chatting with attendees, and had a couple of presentations myself), I learned a few interesting tidbits from several of our guest speakers. John Antilla from Chrysler talked about the challenges … Read More
