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

Altium Prepares for Munich Show as Growth Continues

01/17/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
It’s been just two months since the AltiumLive event drew several hundred designers to San Diego, California, and Altium is already gearing up for the next show in Munich, Germany (January 15–17, 2019). I recently spoke with Chris Donato, VP of global sales for Altium, about the upcoming AltiumLive show as well as the company’s growth over the past few years.

January 2019 Issue of Design007 Magazine Available Now

The component shortage is getting crazy. Some PCB designers are finding their favorite capacitors on 50-week and 80-week lead times, or worse. How do you design a board today when the components you need won’t be available for a year or more? In the January 2019 issue of Design007 Magazine, we asked our expert contributors to explain the current component shortage, as well as some of the workarounds that can help you get your next design out the door sooner rather than later.

A Fractal Conversation with Jim Howard and Greg Lucas

01/15/2019 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Veteran PCB technologists Jim Howard and Greg Lucas have made an interesting discovery: Certain shapes of copper planes make a PCB run more efficiently than other shapes, a process they dubbed fractal design. It doesn’t appear to cost a penny more, and testing suggests that fractal design techniques could eliminate edge noise. Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy asked Jim and Greg to discuss the fractal design process, and the advantages of using this technique.
