SANTA CLARA, Calif. – DesignCon 2016 is billed as the place where the “chip meets the board” but for the Accumold marketing team, the traditional start to the trade show season is the place where industry leaders meet to share their latest innovations and forge new partnerships.

“Starting the year at DesignCon always gives us an exceptional opportunity get things off on the right foot with one of our key target markets and the people who make decisions about its direction,” said Aaron Johnson, Accumold’s Vice President of Marketing and Customer Strategy.

DesignCon, now in its 21st year, kicks off its conference on Tuesday and its exhibition on Wednesday. Both events end on Thursday. It is considered the premier educational conference and technology exhibition for electronic design engineers in the high speed communications and semiconductor communities.

This year’s DesignCon Technical Conference Program consists of 14 tracks covering all aspects of electronic design, from chips through boards and systems. Through more than 100 technical paper sessions, panels and tutorials, conference attendees will learn the latest theories, methodologies, applications and advanced design tools related to signal integrity, power integrity, jitter, crosstalk, test and measurement, parallel and memory interface design, ICs, semiconductor components and more.

“DesignCon is held right in the heart of Silicon Valley and not only gives designers, developers and manufacturers the ability to increase their expertise but also network with fellow engineers and see what’s going on outside the region,” Johnson said. “We’re always excited to bring the Accumold story to the industry’s best and brightest.”

Since its inception in 1985, Accumold’s mission has been to produce super-micro, ultra-precision, plastic injection-molded parts. Parts manufactured by the firm are critical components of the medical, automotive, military, aerospace and telecommunications industries. They can be found in micro-electronics, cell phones, telecommunications, surgical tools, hearing aids, medical devices, antennas, connectors and more. To produce those parts, Accumold builds specialized molding machines engineered to handle volumes from prototypes to millions per year while maintaining consistent, precise tolerances that are unique in the industry.
