Optimize New Product Introductions - Going Fast, Right or Both

Mentor, A Siemens business

Have you ever heard the question “Do you want it fast or do you want it right?” Too often we are pressed to deliver new products quickly, and then we are asked to correct, or improve, the product later. It seems like the priority these days is speed, followed by cost with quality getting any mindshare that’s left. We speak in terms of trade-offs between those topics.

To address the speed of new product introductions (NPI), you must provide tools for PCB designers to see the issues that will delay their product’s release, while they are still in the design process. The cost of a PCB are directly related to the expected yield of the design, and for that designers need solutions that shows them the manufacturing impact of their design.

During this event, we will show how customers are using DFM embedded in the design tools, empowering designers to address all three priorities without compromise.

An Introduction to Li-ion Recycling


Covid-19 has increased the scrutiny on supply chains for many products, including Li-ion batteries, where discussion from raw material extraction to reliance on Chinese manufacturing has been prevalent for several years. The EU and US are increasing efforts to ensure transport electrification doesn't result in loss of jobs or industry and that access to materials and components can be ensured. Recycling could provide a valuable secondary source of key raw materials, mitigating against potential supply bottlenecks in addition to improving the circularity and sustainability of Li-ion batteries. Irrespective of motivation, huge volumes of Li-ion batteries are expected to come onto the market and they will have to be dealt with appropriately once they reach end-of-life.

This webinar will provide an introduction to Li-ion recycling with Dr Alex Holland, Technology Analyst at IDTechEx, covering the following key areas:

  • Overview of recycling processes
  • Discussion of the value proposition of recycling
  • Analysis of 2nd-life vs recycling
  • Look at the current Li-ion recycling market

Battery Electric Buses: Beyond China


China leads the world in bus electrification. Of the approximately 423,000 pure electric city buses in operation today 98.5% of were manufactured and are currently deployed in cities in China. China have built their electric bus industry on the back of a generous subsidy scheme, and this funding has been used to establish a world leading manufacturing base and supply chain for the production battery electric buses. However, because of the phasing-out of subsidies and increasing saturation of electric buses in large Chinese city bus fleets, sales of electric buses have been falling year-on-year since their peak in 2016. As a result, Chinese electric bus OEMs are increasingly looking to foreign markets for growth.

Despite substantially slower uptake of electric buses in the rest of the world, the pressing need to improve air quality in urban areas and commitments by many governments to address climate change, are now fuelling efforts to deliver zero on-road emission city bus fleets. In many areas of the world the bus market is on the brink of a very rapid transition away from traditional diesel powertrains.

This webinar is based on material from the IDTechEx report "Electric, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Buses 2021-2040", providing insight into the industry's evolution, and will cover:

  • Drivers for the transition to electric buses.
  • Challenges to bus electrification.
  • The history and future of bus electrification in key regions.
  • The outlook for battery electric buses, plug-in hybrid buses and fuel cell electric buses.
  • The background to IDTechEx's new granular forecasts for the electric city bus market.

Materials Informatics - Do Not Miss the Revolution


Materials informatics (MI) involves the use of data-centric approaches for materials science R&D. There are multiple strategic approaches and already some notable success stories; significant adoption is happening now and missing this transition will be very costly.
Primarily, MI is based on using data infrastructures and leveraging machine learning solutions for the design of new materials, discovery of materials for a given application, or optimisation of how materials are processed. This is not straight-forward and is still at a nascent stage, but with industry engagement, a flourishing start-up scene, and academic progression the future is very bright.
Ultimately, MI will become a valuable enabling toolkit to anyone that develops materials or designs with materials. MI can accelerate the "forward" direction of innovation (properties are realised for an input material), but the idealised solution is to enable the "inverse" direction (materials are designed given desired properties).
Organic electronics, battery compositions, additive manufacturing alloys, polyurethane formulations, and nanomaterial development are all examples of areas that MI is having an immediate impact on. Numerous industrial end-users have already begun this adoption with 3 core approaches: operate fully in-house, work with an external company, or join forces as part of a consortium.
Through extensive primary interviews, IDTechEx has released a leading technical report on this topic - "Materials Informatics 2020-2030".
This webinar will provide:

  • A technical introduction to the field
  • A discussion as to why now?
  • An overview of key players and developments
  • Key commercial outlooks
  • Critical appraisal of strategic direction available to industrial users
  • Success stories

BluePrint-PCB Webinar

DownStream Technologies

Current tools and methodologies for PCB Documentation are essentially workarounds that, rather than automating, in fact create obstacles to quickly producing detailed and accurate PCB documentation.

What is needed is a new approach to PCB documentation – a standalone PCB document authoring tool, developed in the style of Microsoft Office, which quickly creates electronic drawings to drive the PCB fabrication and assembly processes; a tool that “knows” it is creating a PCB document and leverages the PCB CAD data to automatically create and intelligently link PCB Views, details, document notes, external documents, URLs and multi-media content.

The result should be an electronic document which better articulates the instructions for PCB manufacturing, which can be changed instantly, and will lead to faster and more accurate new product introduction. A new product from DownStream Technologies – BluePrint for Printed Circuit Boards – is just such a product.

A Hybrid Design Verification Methodology for Increased Coverage and Faster Iterations

Mentor, A Siemens business

Most organizations leave detailed design validation for lab prototype testing, but this approach discovers problems late in the design cycle, leading to board re-spins that introduce delays and raise project costs. Increasing PCB systems performance requirements coupled with a pressure to improve product quality are driving engineering teams to consider alternatives to their current validation approach.This webinar discusses a hybrid approach for post-route verification that quickly and automatically screens designs for potential faults across multiple disciplines. Potential faults can then be reviewed by the designer and further quantified through simulation if necessary. This method permits near real-time checking of layout as the design progresses. It also eliminates the delays and quality issues associated with manual design reviews while providing complete coverage of high-speed, and safety layout constraints to ensure all requirements have been satisfied.

Designing SerDes Channels for Protocol Compliance

Mentor, A Siemens business

Multi-gigabit serial channels present some of the most stringent signal integrity challenges facing designers today. With high speed links, small details are critical – device pinout, breakout routing, signal routing layers, return paths and parasitics associated with blocking capacitors all have significant impact on channel margin that requires careful design analysis and optimization. Equally important is avoiding analytical overkill – spending too much time optimizing a single structure without considering its impact on total channel margin – because over-optimization wastes time and money.

This webinar explores the different aspects of serial channel design planning and analysis from the pre-layout standpoint, using simulation to develop a detailed set of layout rules. Design of detailed geometries requiring 3D EM simulation is explored, showing how to assess design alternatives and maximize overall channel margin.
