The 2014 session of the Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum (IESF) for the Military & Aerospace industries is coming up fast. Join us to see how Mentor Graphics tools can help you develop safer, more reliable systems. Here are the dates and locations:

  • April 22 in Dallas, Texas
  • April 24 in Everett, Washington
  • May 1 in Long Beach, California

If you are not familiar with IESF, here is a short description from

“The Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum is a global conference program for electrical/electronic design engineers, managers and executives. Each IESF event focuses on EE design issues in a specific industry such as Automotive; Aerospace; Off-Highway; Military or Commercial Vehicles sectors. IESF is free to attend, and is supported by Mentor Graphics, IBM and SAE International.”

Each location includes technical sessions in the following disciplines:

  • Platform-level Systems Engineering
  • Electrical & Wire Harness Design
  • Model-based Systems Design and Analysis
  • Network Verification (DO-330/DO-178C)
  • Design Lifecycle Management
  • Integrated PCB Systems Design & Manufacturing
  • Thermal Design for Reliability

Along with the technical sessions, Richard Aboulafia, Vice President – Analysis at the Teal group, will give a keynote address titled “Back in Black: Aircraft and Defense Markets Outlook and Forecast”.

About Mike Jensen

Mike JensenMost career paths rooted in high technology take many interesting (and often rewarding) twists and turns. Mine has certainly done just that. After graduating in electrical engineering from the University of Utah (go Utes!), I set off to explore the exciting, multi-faceted high tech industry. My career path since has wound its way from aircraft systems engineering for the United States Air Force, to over two decades in applications engineering and technical marketing for leading design automation software companies, working exclusively with mechatronic system modeling and analysis tools. Along the way, I’ve worked with customers in a broad range of industries and technologies including transportation, communications, automotive, aerospace, semiconductor, computers, and consumer electronics; all-in-all a very interesting, rewarding, and challenging ride. In my current gig, I work on technical marketing projects for Mentor Graphics' SystemVision product line. And in my spare time I dream up gadgets and gizmos, some even big enough to qualify as systems, that I hope someday to build -- providing I can find yet a little more of that increasingly elusive spare time.
