PCB Design

Get to Know Your SPICEs

Since the first implementation of electronic simulation in the schematic capture software realm, circuit designers have been using SPICE for analog and digital “what-if analysis”. Engineering students adopted it for their studies and then continued using it throughout their careers. PCB designers typically have little or no experience with SPICE applications. No worries, follow along with me and get to know your SPICEs!

MCAD is from Mars, ECAD is from Venus

Linda Mazzitelli, PTC’s Product Management Director, goes on to explain how the collaboration between MCAD and ECAD is vital to the success of any electromechanical design process.
