Reading time ( words)
There’s no doubt about it: Developing circuit boards is getting more complex.
Demand for faster data speeds is increasing. Boards are becoming more dense. Requirements call for the latest protocols and devices. Packaging constraints call for multi-board and flex-board systems. The surest sign of escalating board complexity lies in the fact that few are designed by a single engineer.
Today, most require the coordination of many engineers instead. And overall, this trend shows no sign of abating. Board complexity looks like it will only get worse. Obviously, all this complexity carries risk, both in terms of time and money. So how do you mitigate it? One answer might surprise you: system-level engineering.
