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

Words of Advice: Your Company’s Design Process

05/16/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
In a recent survey, we asked PCB designers to describe their company’s design process: Is it a rigid workflow they follow to the letter, or a process that allows for their individual techniques? Of course, the comments were illustrative. Only one respondent said, "We just wing it."

Learning to Be More Flexible: Case Studies on Improving FPC Design

05/14/2019 | Todd MacFadden, Bose Corporation
As miniaturization requirements force manufacturers to pack more functionality into ever-smaller packages, it becomes more difficult to conform to IPC construction recommendations. Achieving robust FPCs requires frequent, iterative interaction internally among the mechanical, electrical, and PCB design teams, as well as with the fabricators and assemblers. The sooner in the design cycle you can engage the supplier and assembler, the better.

Technically Appropriate Material Choices are Key to Design Success

05/16/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Materials are no longer a passive part of the design; they play an active role in the manufacturability, reliability, and speed of a PCB. I-Connect007’s Nolan Johnson and Mike Creeden, founder of San Diego PCB Design, discuss several key characteristics that designers should consider in their material selection process.
