Zuken USA, Inc, is again participating in PCB West, to be held September 12-14 in Santa Clara, CA. The event includes a three-day technical conference and one-day exhibition to be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Zuken and Nano Dimension will share a booth and showcase the latest technologies for PCB Design for Manufacture (DfM) and 3D printing. Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force DfM software provides a platform to automate the process of applying the necessary rules for different board technologies, including flex, with the benefit of improving design quality and manufacturing yields. This software incorporates a database of design rules for many different manufacturing processes that take into account materials and technologies.

Nano Dimension will feature its DragonFly 2020 3D printer for professional electronics and nanotechnology-based conductive and dielectric materials for its 3D printers. DragonFly 2020 3D Printers enable companies involved in electronics to take control of their development cycles by 3D printing their own multi-layer PCB prototypes. The 3D printer continues to capture global industry and media attention.

Together, the companies’ combined offerings represent a complete solution for the design and manufacture of multi-layer PCBs unmatched in the industry. By using them together, development teams can introduce more agile development processes at every prototyping stage – from concept verification and design validation, to test fixtures. With these solutions, users can expect to spend more time innovating and getting new ideas to market, rather than dealing with design administration.

The two companies are presenting multiple sessions during the technical conference highlighting their technology expertise:

  •        Power Integrity and Decoupling Primer for PCB Designers
  •        Improve Flexible Printed Circuit Manufacturing Productivity with Better DfM Checks
  •        EDA Support and Roadmap for 3D Printing of PCBs
  •        3D Printing: A New Dimension in Electronics Prototyping & Manufacturing
