Forty six companies have joined the consortium developing the increasingly important IPC-2581 data transfer standard for PCB designs.
Electrical rule checks (ERC) are now available to deal with increasing PCB design complexity, speed project delivery and protect the intellectual property within them.
An increasingly important concept in design is that of product creation. An approach based on product creation looks beyond chip or board design.
Early use of design for manufacturing can capture PCB yield issues related to pads, copper distribution, same net slivers and more
Speeding up electronics design by learning lessons in increasing parallelism from computer science.
A side-channel attack is a form of reverse engineering that takes advantage of the information leakage from electronic circuitry. And it is a major risk to design security.
Advanced PCB and IC technologies have to be matched with advanced design and analysis tools if companies are going to produce board designs that are right first time, on time.
‘Envelope tracking’ is not a new technique; it has been known about for more than 50 years. But it could greatly help the power consumption challenges once more facing mobile handset design.
MCAD integration provides the means for designers to test the mechanical compatibility of a PCB design – for cooling performance as well as whether the layout will fit into an enclosure without problems.
Signal integrity (SI) issues have been around for a while, the result of ever-faster edge rates. Both SI and PI problems manifest themselves as data errors. Indeed, PI problems are often misdiagnosed as SI problems. As such, an understanding of power delivery issues is essential to the success of any board project, as is a [...]
