Tech Tip: Creating Automatic Bill of Materials and Wire/Connector List Reports in E3.series

This tech tip explains how to create automatic bill of materials (BOM) and connection or wire list reports. E3.series has the built-in capability to generate these reports, and users can choose to either create standalone reports in Excel format for use with other applications or build the reports into their current E3.series projects as additional sheets.

Mitigating Board Complexity with System-level Engineering

There’s no doubt that board systems are getting more complex. System-level engineering can help mitigate those risks. One of the main advantages is developing and comparing systems architectures, which provides visibility into the constraints of design decisions to engineers, helping them to avoid nasty surprises late in development.
