  • Why Use High Density Interconnect?

    One of the fastest growing technologies in printed circuit board (PCB) design is high density interconnect (HDI). HDI boards allow for higher circuitry density than traditional circuit boards due to a more concentrated arrangement of smaller components, creating more concise pathways. Blind and/or buried vias are commonly used to optimize space in HDI boards, and […]

  • Altium’s Judy Warner Discusses the Challenges of EDA Tool Licensing with Freedom CAD’s Scott Miller & Scott McCurdy

    EDA Tool Licensing can vary greatly between different tools, some offer subscription licenses while others offer perpetual (or both).  There can be many challenges when trying to juggle demand across multiple tools, Altium’s Judy Warner interviews Freedom CAD’s COO, Scott Miller, and Director of Sales and Marketing, Scott McCurdy, about how FCS acquires and uses […]
