PCB Design Excellence Award

Zuken Supports PCB Design Excellence in Germany with FED PCB Design Awards

27 April 2016 – Munich, Germany – Zuken has announced its sponsorship of the 2016 FED (Association for Electronic Design) PCB Design Awards, which recognize smart and sophisticated PCB design. Previous winners of this biennial award have benefited from industry recognition and new business opportunities.

Ralf Bruening, Senior Consultant at Zuken, said: “We believe that good PCB design education is important to the future competitiveness of German industry. As the only global vendor to offer both PCB and electrical design solutions, Zuken has first-hand experience of the value of good PCB design when working on today’s increasingly complex mechatronic products.”

Erika Reel, FED Executive Director, said: “The PCB Design Award honors the work of designers whose effort is often lost in the process of hardware development. The designers have to make the technically impossible possible.”

Prizes will be awarded across four categories: 3D Design; High Power; High Wiring Density/High Transfer Rates (HDI); and Special Creativity. Deadline for submissions is 31 May 2016 and application forms can be downloaded here. Entry is open to all PCB designers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Award winners will be announced at the 24th Annual FED Conference on 15-16 September 2016 in Bonn.

FED is the professional association for design, PCB and component manufacturing in German-speaking countries. The association is committed to helping engineers in German-speaking countries become certified interconnect designers, helping those who typically train across a broad variety of disciplines to develop the specialized skills needed for companies to compete globally.
