Words of Advice: Where Do You Get Involved in the Design Process?


Reading time ( words)

In a recent survey, we asked the following question: Where in the process do you typically get involved with a design project? Here are a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

  1. At the schematic.
  2. Making library parts, and then generally not until most of the schematic is complete.
  3. During layout.
  4. During planning.
  5. When “they” decide what it is that “they” want.
