PCB West 2013

Industry Conference  
24 Sep 2013 - 26 Sep 2013  
Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA  

PCB West covers the entire PCB supply chain, bringing together engineers, designers, fabricators, assemblers, and managers for a unique opportunity to improve skills, increase knowledge, and network with one another.

During exhibition day, held on September 25th, please visit Cadence at booth #406 to meet with us and find out why OrCAD®, Allegro®, and Sigrity® technologies are great alone but better together. You’ll also learn more about exciting new developments in these technologies and how we can help you design today’s complex PCBs and IC packaging.

IPC-2581 Consortium Booth #417
Visit IPC-2581 Consortium booth #417 to see the progress made since last year’s PCB West on forming an open, neutral global standard for efficient PCB design data transfer. The IPC-2581 data will be output from Cadence® Allegro® 16.6, and then consumed by tools from ADIVA, Downstream Technologies, and WISE Software for design for manufacturing (DFM) checking, viewing, and documentation.

Stop by and talk with consortium member representatives from system companies, electronic design automation (EDA) companies, DFM software companies, and manufacturing companies to learn why it’s worth the effort to support this standard.

As one of the founding members of IPC-2581 Consortium, Cadence believes it is in the industry’s best interest that an open, public, neutrally maintained standard be adopted by all segments of the PCB design, fabrication, assembly, and test supply chain. Cadence commits to developing and maintaining IPC-2581 export from its Allegro PCB design software and staying current with the latest approved and published IPC-2581 specifications.

Be sure to attend one of the following Cadence® speaking sessions:
