Wipro Technologies has won the Best Overall Design category award in the Mentor Graphics' 23rd annual PCB Technology Leadership Awards program.
Wipro's design team members were Rakesh Raju Nadimetla and Radesh Gupta, who won it using Board Station RE, XtremePCB, HyperLynx SI/PI.
Started in 1988, this program is the longest running competition of its kind in the electronic design automation (EDA) industry. It recognizes engineers and computer aided design (CAD) designers who use innovative methods and design tools to address today’s complex PCB systems’ design challenges and produce industry-leading products.
"Mentor Graphics’ Technology Leadership Awards showcases the best electronics design teams in the industry. The complexity of the designs and the commitment of the teams who worked on the designs, is a testament to the talents and innovative abilities of engineers and designers involved," said Pete Waddell, president of UP Media and publisher of Printed Circuit Design & Fab/Circuits Assembly Magazine.
The PCB industry expert judges included Happy Holden, retired and former CTO, Foxconn Advanced Technology; 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; and Rick Hartley, senior principal engineer, Avionics Division of L-3 Communications.
