Quadra Solutions has become European CADSTAR Distributor of the Year for the sixth time. CADSTAR is Zuken’s industry-leading desktop PCB design software.

2014-15 has been a strong year for Quadra Solutions on several fronts – they were recently named sole UK provider of the IPC PCB Design Training Course, Certified Interconnect Designer (CID). IPC is the global trade association for the electronics industry

Steve Dobson, managing director, Quadra Solutions, said, “We are delighted to be reporting a great year for Quadra and this award is the icing on the cake. We rode out the economic downturn across the UK and Europe by providing a consultative approach right from initial contact, ensuring we delivered the best solutions that exceeded our customers’ expectations. This approach has put us in a strong position as we now strengthen our relationships with partners and invest in further staff.”

Jeroen Leinders, CADSTAR worldwide sales manager, said, “Quadra Solutions continues to show a winning combination of experience, expertise and strategy in supporting CADSTAR customers across the UK, Netherlands and Scandinavia.”

Global Invacom, one of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of satellite and TV peripheral equipment, recently worked with Quadra to adopt CADSTAR software.

Cliff Evans, ECAD design flow manager, Global Invacom, said, “We were keen to adopt new software to support our future plans and find the right fit for the company. We evaluated a wide range of software options and after much consideration the decision was made to move forward with CADSTAR. The software has provided us with a world-class PCB design solution for our mixed technology product range, and the support from Quadra will help aid us in our future plans.”

A New Sourcing Paradigm

09/20/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We’ve seen many changes over the past few years, and nowhere are they more evident than in the world of sourcing components. Sourcing has become one of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers and design engineers today. Gone are the days of procuring parts from a single source, and communication between stakeholders and distributors is critical. But as we learned in a conversation with I-Connect007 columnist Kelly Dack, PCB designers can use certain layout strategies to plan for the unexpected, such as leaving extra real estate so that smaller components can be replaced by larger, readily available parts if the originals become “unobtainium.”

Happy’s Design Tips for Material Conservation

08/25/2022 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
For this issue, Happy Holden provided a range of options for designers who are seeking to conserve materials in their next design. He also offered an example of the relative cost index, or RCI, that he developed at HP exclusively for PCB design. With this RCI, designers can figure out the relative cost of a new design compared to an eight-layer through-hole board. We hope you can use this handy formula on your next design job.
