Hamamatsu Adopts Siemens mPower Software & Other Supplier News

Here’s what was new in the world of medical device suppliers during the week of December 18.

Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that Hamamatsu Photonics K.K., a provider of optical semiconductor devices, has adopted Siemens’ mPower digital software for its next generation of devices. Siemens’ mPower makes it easier for customers to perform sign-off analysis of the power more quickly and accurately, electromigration, and IR-drop performance of integrated circuits. This helps customers confirm that their implemented design will meet performance and reliability targets when manufacturered.

“Power integrity analysis is a critical technology for us, because our optical IC products need to achieve extremely high performance and reliability in order to meet stringent functionality requirements,” said Masaaki Matsubara, manager for the second design group, Design Center, Solid State Division for Hamamatsu Photonics. “We believe Siemens’ mPower digital software is our best option for improving IC performance and reliability. Our designers use the mPower solution to analyze their designs at early stages of development, and the software definitely helps to optimize the power source design faster.”
