Sierra Circuits to Launch HDI Stackup Planner Tool at DesignCon 2011 in Santa Clara

Visit Booth Number 732 and Attend the Free HDI Seminars on February 1st and 2nd at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. in Ballroom H

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - Sierra Circuits, the leader in QuickTurn HDI PCBs, has announced that it will launch and showcase a new HDI Stackup Planning Tool at DesignCon 2011 (at the Santa Clara Convention Center from January 31st to February 2nd). This new tool enables PCB layout designers to create complex HDI PCB stackups in a single day.

As a layout designer, one is constantly challenged with feature issues including pad size, hole size, trace widths, via structures, the construction of micro via structures, and development time/cost. Sierra Circuits can help you overcome these issues by providing the expertise and tools to make a highly successful and manufacturable design.

"We have found that the most successful designs are those which have good stackups planned from the beginning," said Ken S. Bahl, CEO of Sierra Circuits. "By using our planning tools and focusing on the stackup early in the design cycle, the layout designer can create a robust design with great manufacturability and operational characteristics."

Sierra Circuits will also be hosting four free seminars in creating cost-effective yet highly manufacturable HDI stackups. The participants will learn HDI design "best practices" for creating high-quality designs without unnecessary iterations, added costs, or delayed time-to-market.

Visitors to Sierra Circuits booth number 732 will learn about Sierra Circuits' HDI capabilities and also be able to try out the Stackup Planner. This sophisticated and easy-to-use tool asks the System Engineers and Layout Designers a few key questions about their design and recommends choices for optimal stackups for different technology levels.
