Achieving Physical Reliability Of Electronics With Digital Design


By John Parry and G.A. (Wendy) Luiten With today’s powerful computational resources, digital design is increasingly used earlier in the design cycle to predict zero-hour nominal performance and to assess reliability. The methodology presented in this article uses a combination of simulation and testing to assess design performance, providing more reliability and increased productivity. ... » read more

3D PCB Design And Analysis: ECAD/MCAD And Where They Converge


The design of a board and its ‘home’ are heavily interdependent. They require careful consideration to ensure everything will be in working order when your product is ultimately brought to market. Many designs have been derailed by conflicts between ECAD and MCAD. Something as simple as an improperly placed / communicated mounting hole can send your project into a tailspin of re-designs. ... » read more

ECAD-MCAD Co-Design Promotes Automotive First-Pass Success


Achieving first-pass success is the goal of every automotive design team, both electrical and mechanical, as it minimizes or even eliminates costly design iterations. In the automotive industry, first-pass success is more challenging than ever because of the increasing electro-mechanical complexity and density of modern vehicles. Most modern cars run their critical systems, such as the throttle... » read more
