Design engineers must have the ability to make intelligent component selections involving critical supply chain information without having to leave their design environment. In today’s world, end-of-life status, lead time, part preference and trusted/consistent parametric data are as important to your company’s design process as is the standard CAD content.
Learn how you can overcome common issues in your design processes with the leading-edge design technologies from Zuken by watching our free on-demand webinars. View our live and on-demand webinars here.
Please join us for our Fall/Winter Webinar Series that will run from September through March 2019. Over the following months, we’ll be covering a wide range of topics, from Silicon Expert to E3.series MCAD co-design. During each webinar, we’ll cover a common design challenge and present/demonstrate a solution. You’ll leave with takeaways that you can immediately apply to your daily activities.
All of you PCB designers out there – I hope you had the opportunity to attend PCB West this year. The sold-out show floor was all abuzz with activity, as was our booth and the Zuken-sponsored barista cart. Free latte or cappuccino – who can pass on that?
Generating quotes for manufacturing can be a complicated and cumbersome process. It’s a complaint I’ve heard often across many industries. While precious resources are dedicated to tracking parts, long lead items, part costs vs. labor, etc., the manual process leads to gaps, errors and delays. This will hurt your bottom line across the board.
Flex designs pose unique challenges for most PCB tools because traditional object checks don’t account for Flex checks nuances. They present a new set of objects that are best accounted for during the design phase.
This forces designers to incorporate changes after the design data is off to manufacturing for build. The manufacturer must then perform the Flex-based checks on the design and relay the issues back to the designer. This leads to a frustrating loop that delays product releases and wastes money.
