Rigid-Flex PCB Bending EM Analysis Using Clarity 3D Solver


Rigid-Flex PCBs have been used in many modern electronic devices (such as mobile phones, laptops, and wearables, among others), due to their form factor, light weight, and cost-effectiveness. Electromagnetic (EM) analysis of Rigid-Flex PCBs has always been a challenging task for many commercially available 3D numerical solver technologies (FEM and FDTD), due to the complexity in the 3D designs.... » 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

Driving Intelligence To The IoT Edge Invents A New Breed Of Designers


A new breed of designers has arrived that is leveraging inexpensive sensors to build the intelligent systems at the edge of the Internet of Things (IoT). These systems play in every space: from devices on the body, vehicles, the workplace, across the land, sea, air, and the outer reaches of space. It’s no surprise that this new breed of designers is taking full advantage of advanced sensing t... » read more
