The Challenges of 3D PCB Designing (PCB West Interview)
This post originally appeared in Sierra Circuits’ blog. Read it here.
During PCB West Exhibition Day, Sierra Circuits met Humair Mandavia, Chief Strategy Officer at Zuken. After his joint interview with Simon Fried, CBO of Nano Dimension, we discussed 3D PCB designing, and Zuken’s product, CR-8000 with him.
Questions asked during the interview:
- 0:05 What are the challenges when designing 3D PCBs?
- 0:40 Can you discuss CR-8000 and how does it support 3D PCB printing?
- 1:30 Have you noticed any upcoming trends in the industry?
Humair also did a joint interview with Zuken partner Nano Dimension’s Simon Fried.
If you’ve tracked some of the hot topics in engineering over the last year, you’re likely very aware of 3D printing or additive manufacturing. This method lays down successive layers of plastic or metallic material that then fuses them together. Over time, those successive layers add up to make fully formed components...
CR-8000 Design Force is the fastest, most effective PCB layout solution available today. Design Force enables design teams to layout and verify their designs in the context of a complete system or product.
CR-8000 is a System-Level PCB & IC Package Design software including 3D Multi-board, Analysis and MCAD Integration
Sierra met Steve Watt, Manager of PCB Engineering at Zuken, during PCB West 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. After his presentation on how to improve flexible printed circuit manufacturing, he shared a few tips in front of our camera. Listen to him discuss CR-8000, DfM checks, and flexible PCB designing.
