History of success

Optimum Design Associates was founded in 1991 by Nick Barbin and Roger Hileman as a PCB design service bureau located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ten years later, in 2001, Optimum extended its reach into Australia with the acquisition of EDA Technologies and renamed it to Optimum Design Associates Australia with Brendon Parise as its director. Seven years later saw further expansion with its acquisition of Rock Solid Design, located in San Jose to bolster its tool and design capabilities. Over the past 30 years, seven Optimum designers have competed and have won the coveted PCB Top Gun award. Today, Optimum has grown to over fifty engineers and designers located throughout the US and Australia.
