EMA Webinar: How to Design with Supply Chain in Mind


Reading time ( words)

BOM denied: Redesign required. These are four words any engineering team dreads. You spent countless hours designing, crafting, and testing your product to perfection only to have everything put in jeopardy due to component sourcing issues.

Obsolete parts, RoHS / REACH compliance issues, inadequate stock—almost every engineer has been bitten by one of these issues at some point. What's worse is these issues often result in some sort of late-stage redesign. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way.

On March 14 at 2 pm Eastern Time, join EMA Design Automation and SiliconExpert for a free webinar that focuses on the common causes of BOM rejection and how to prevent these issues in the future.

What attendees will learn:

  • Common reasons for your design and BOM to be rejected
  • The impact of these issues (on engineering and the overall chance of your products success)
  • How to avoid spec’ing in unorderable / obsolete / non-compliant parts at the design stage
  • How to generate supply chain ready ‘Zero-Touch’ BOMs as an inherent part of your design process

Design Is a Pivotal Piece of the Puzzle

07/03/2019 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
As a field applications engineer at TTM Technologies, which has fabrication and manufacturing locations around the world, Julie Ellis sees a wide variety of customer design requirements. In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, Julie explains how PCB designers can influence the development of the PCB. She shares a variety of tips and tricks that designers can implement early in the design process to help optimize fabrication and assembly later on and keep small issues from becoming big problems downstream.

Albert Gaines: Design All Comes Down to Documentation

06/28/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During SMTA Atlanta, I spoke with Albert Gaines of HiGain Design. We discussed Albert’s belief that everything starts with design and that too many engineers and designers focus solely on the final board at the expense of the documentation, which is a designer’s most important product. Do you consider your documentation to be a critical product?
