Mentor Webinar January 23: Electro-Mechanical Co-Design


Reading time ( words)

Poor communication between PCB designers and mechanical engineers can cause projects to miss their time-to-market and cost targets by 50% or more. When these teams can collaborate in real time to develop a virtual prototype of the finished product, they can be assured that the PCBs will fit perfectly in their mechanical housing prior to fabrication.

This live webinar, scheduled for January 23, 2019, will reveal how electro-mechanical co-design can enable you to meet your cost and time-to-market goals, allowing you to beat your competitors to market and deliver higher quality products.

Presenters are John McMillan, a member of the PADS Technical Marketing team, and Brent Klingforth, a technical marketing engineer.

What Attendees Will Learn

  • How to break down the barriers between PCB design and mechanical design domains with PADS Professional’s MCAD Collaborator
  • Demonstration of an actual electro-mechanical co-design session from the PCB designer and MCAD tool user’s perspective
  • How to accelerate time-to-market, eliminate re-spins, and reduce product cost with electro-mechanical collaboration

Who Should Attend

  • PCB and mechanical designers
  • CAD managers

Managing Footprints With Integrated EDA Tools

02/23/2021 | Matt Walsh, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

A Library Management Cautionary Tale

02/12/2021 | Steven V. Chavez, CID+
The library management of footprints, land patterns, or cells—however you refer to them in your ecosystem—is one of the most critical items in the foundation of any PCB or CCA design. When I was asked to write an article on this topic, so many thoughts and experiences instantly flooded my mind. After 30+ years of designing PCBs throughout the industry, I have my share of experiences and stories about footprints. One particular experience stands out.

Best Practices: Footprint Design and CAD Library Management

02/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect team spoke with Altium’s John Watson about the hurdles surrounding footprints and footprint design. John talks about how being proactive and improving the CAD library can better QC processes and help protect against footprint difficulties.
