If you are involved with semiconductor packaging design, then have I got news for you. We just announced the availability of FloTHERM IC – a web-based tool that delivers a high level of automation to design tasks associated with full-spectrum thermal characterization and validation. From what I understand, a typical semiconductor thermal team spends about 60% of their time on standard package thermal

Nazita Saye When budgets are tight most managers think about the same thing before they sign on the dotted line:  is this new tool going to help us get more done faster/better/smarter? If the answer is no then like most managers I don’t make the investment. Instead I focus on an activity that’s going to give me the best return on investment (ROI). That’s why last week I talked about time compression being … Read More

John Parry Strictly speaking that’s mechanical engineers, and the information comes from Parametric Design Corporation (PTC), in their white paper Five Things You Should Know About 3D CAD Software. As PTC say - it’s a startling fact. Having had experience of keeping track of my own time to charge to different projects the figure really jumped out at me. I found that if you take away the time spent on internal … Read More

Paul Johnston This is not controversial. But it is surprisingly often neglected, or lost sight of when organizations are considering refreshing their capabilities for systems interconnect tool integrations. The IT professionals involved in evaluating the vendor offerings know what they are looking for, the electrical engineers, the harness designers and wiring specialists have a well polished technical appreciation … Read More

Paul Johnston Requests for Quotation, Requests for Information come the way of the sales force in Mentor Graphics frequently. Prospective customers ask for testimonials, competence, references and proof of functionality. Following on from my last posting here is what I found.  My experience, my analysis of the data. These requirements in total over all documents I reviewed show a very even split.  Hundreds of individual … Read More

Nazita Saye A while ago I heard something that made me tilt my head to the side… similar to that iconic image of Nipper, the Jack Russell terrier, listening to his master’s voice on a phonograph (I was going to post the image but international copyright rules are rather complicated. If you really want to see the image, then please go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nipper). Anyway, someone jokingly referred to … Read More
