Mentor Graphics Announces 24th Annual PCB Technology Leadership Awards Program Winners

WILSONVILLE, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 16, 2012 — Continuing its tradition of promoting and recognizing printed circuit board (PCB) design excellence, Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced winners of its 24th annual PCB Technology Leadership Awards. Started in 1988, this program is the longest running competition of its kind in the electronic design automation (EDA) industry. It recognizes engineers and designers who use innovative methods and design tools to address today’s complex PCB systems design challenges and produce industry-leading products.

Industry experts judged entries from around the world in six categories representing a wide variety of industries. The PCB industry expert judges included Happy Holden, director of electronics technologies, GENTEX Corporation; Gary Ferrari, technical support director, FTG Circuits; Pete Waddell, president of UP Media, publisher of Printed Circuit Design & Fab/Circuits Assembly magazine; Andy Kowalewski, senior interconnect designer, AdvantagePCB; Charles Pfeil, engineering director, Mentor Graphics; and Rick Hartley, senior principal engineer, Avionics Division of L-3. Also this year an honorary judge was included: Dr. Russell F. Henke, high-tech business consultant since 1996 and EDACafe.com contributing editor since 2003, and founder of the original TLA program.

“With 47 years in electronics, I’ve learned what it takes to make a circuit and PCB board function precisely as it should, especially in this very high-speed world of today. The screaming edge rates drive us into the need for impedance control and high-power integrity, the likes of which we’ve not seen before,” stated Rick Hartley, senior principal engineer, Avionics Division of L-3 and a judge for this year’s competition. “I have never given a score to a design as high as the one I ranked as the overall winner—it’s just unheard of, how good that design is! Overall, I am amazed at how terrific almost every design was this year.”
