Socionext Acquires Package Design Firm Bayside Design Inc.

Reading time ( words)

Socionext Inc. has acquired Bayside Design Inc. (BDI), a U.S.-based supplier of package design services, through Socionext America Inc. (SNA), its U.S. subsidiary. BDI started operations as a 100% owned subsidiary of SNA on January 1, 2016.

Previously, development of SoC (System-on-Chip) design flow mainly focused on optimizing the layout of in-chip elements, such as transistors and interconnects. With the increasing demand for higher functionality and performance, it is becoming necessary to pay more attention to the chips' packages, and to the printed circuit boards (PCB) where these packages are mounted. A new methodology, Chip-Package-PCB co-design, helps companies cost-effectively meet today's performance, functionality and time-to-market requirements. This methodology is expected to become more important in the future.

BDI has extensive experience and expertise in quickly delivering high-quality package designs for high-speed, high-performance SoCs.

Socionext is providing SoC-based solutions to a variety of markets that require such high-quality SoCs, such as IT infrastructure (e.g., servers, storage systems, and networks), consumer and industrial equipment and the Internet of Things (IoT). By implementing BDI's technologies within its product design, Socionext will be able to more quickly provide high-performance, high-quality products and services to the global market.

This is part of the Socionext commitment to continually enhance the quality of its designs and to meet the challenge of new technologies, thus helping its customers deliver more valuable products and services.

About Socionext Inc.

Socionext is a new, innovative enterprise that designs, develops and delivers System-on-Chip products to customers worldwide.

A High-Voltage PCB Design Primer

01/12/2022 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
Of all the different boards a designer can create, a high voltage PCB design can be complicated and requires strict attention to safety. If not laid out correctly these boards can be safety hazards or can fail to function on first power up, leaving a designer with wasted time and effort. In the best case, the board will function reliably for a long period of time thanks to correct layout practices. High-voltage PCB design can be as complex as any high-speed digital design. Boards for high-voltage systems can be space constrained and they carry important safety requirements. They also need to be highly reliable to ensure they will have a long life when run at high voltage and current.

High-Voltage PCB Design: Beating Separation Anxiety

01/11/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In recent surveys, PCB designers named high voltage among the issues causing problems in their designs. That led us to speak with Zuken USA’s Andy Buja, Wilmer Companioni, and Sanu Warrier about the challenges PCB designers and design engineers must confront when working with high-voltage designs. In this conversation, we discuss everything from the nuts and bolts of high-voltage design, such as the need to separate components of a high-voltage board, to the compliance problems companies like Tesla face when installing EV chargers around the world in countries with varying regulations.
