Isola Group, a market leader in copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepreg materials used to fabricate advanced multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs), announced that its board of directors has appointed Jeff Waters as president and CEO, effective immediately. Waters succeeds Interim CEO Jeffery McCreary, who was brought in to enable leadership continuity after Ray Sharpe’s retirement in August 2015.
Sonnet Software Inc. introduces Sonnet Suites 16 (V16), enabling integration with the Modelithics® CLR Library for Sonnet, along with speed increases in larger projects, and new features that give users more control and automation for their designs.
Rogers Corp. will be exhibiting and educating at the upcoming DesignCon show. Now in its 21st year, DesignCon is a premiere event for design chip-circuit-and system-level engineers working on high-frequency analog and high-speed digital circuits. DesignCon 2016 is scheduled for January 19-21, 2016 (January 20-21 for the exhibition) at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.
The SX probe heads' high measurement resolution allows the developer to pinpoint RF sources of between 1 and 10 GHz on densely packed printed circuit boards or on IC pins. The handy compact pin shape of the EMC near-field probes from Langer EMV-Technik GmbH provides the developer with convenient working conditions on the respective PCB.
Rogers Corp. will be at PCB West, one of the electronic industry’s major technical events, on September 16, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center (Santa Clara, CA). Rogers will provide examples of its high-performance printed-circuit-board (PCB) materials and participate in the technical symposium with a talk on how to perform wideband testing of PCBs with plated finishes.
Amphenol Invotec Ltd. has gained approval from Underwriters Laboratories for I-Tera®MT; a very low loss laminate, developed for high speed applications. I-Tera®MT laminate materials exhibit exceptional electrical properties which are very stable over a broad frequency and temperature range.
Anokiwave Inc., an innovative provider of highly integrated core IC solutions for mmWave and AESA markets, announced the latest addition to its leadership team with the appointment of Carl Frank to the position of vice president of business development. This appointment comes at a time of strategic expansion for Anokiwave.
Remcom announces a new circuit element optimizer for XFdtd® electromagnetic simulations software that optimizes matching circuits for several antennas serving multiple bands simultaneously. XFdtd’s Circuit Element Optimizer determines lumped element values based on the following goals: radiation efficiency, system efficiency, and S-parameters. This simplifies the antenna matching workflow because the circuit elements remain in the electromagnetic layout structure during optimization.
Rogers Corp., a global technology leader in the development of high performance printed circuit materials, announced that its division previously known as Advanced Circuit Materials is changing its name to Advanced Connectivity Solutions (ACS)
Cirexx International announced that they will be presenting their ECLIPS technology at IMS2015 in Phoenix, Ariz., May 17-22. Cirexx will be in Booth # 2023. ECLIPS (Embedded Cooling Layer – Integrated Power System) is a system of producing high-power RF/microwave printed circuit boards (PCBs) employing an embedded low-CTE, thermally engineered metalized heat-sink layer which has superior thermal conductivity characteristics.
