Words of Advice: Streamlining Your Design Process


Reading time ( words)

In a recent Design007 Survey, we asked the following question: What would help you streamline your design process? Here are just a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

Karl Bates, ConnectPCB: An industry-wide shared library, industry-wide shared models, and industry-wide shared board templates.

Mihai Burgheaua, Continental Automotive: A simplified internal process, a meaningful timeline, and smarter EDA tools.

Roger Hughes, Blackmagic Design: A more stable design environment. Unfortunately, that is not always possible.

During DesignCon, I met with Geoffrey Hazelett, VP of sales for Polar Instruments. Even though he has been in EDA for a few years, Geoffrey is still in his thirties, which makes him a youthful cherub in this industry. I asked Geoffrey what he thinks about the new PCB designers and EEs entering this field, and what more can be done to expose young people to the world of PCBs.
