Toshiba faced a difficult design problem: their TransferJet™ technology was embedded in a customer cell phone, and when the next rev of the phone they needed to shrink the board and the module thickness. On top of that, they had to add RF matching to simplify the adoption of the module. Toshiba used Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force with ANSYS analysis tools to accomplish the project.
Chip, Package and Board Design
Complex 3D stacked structures and embedded devices
As the industry moves to complex 3D stacked structures and embedded devices, there is a need for tools that can accurately render and provide meaningful visual and DRC feedback to enable rapid right-the-first-time designs.
