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. For me as a service bureau, it starts when the schematic is either complete or close enough to get the work started. For some long-term customers, I’m asked to join in on the planning.
  2. From concept to production.
  3. I usually get involved during the proposal phase and carry through to production.
  4. During planning of resources and the layout phase.
  5. I start at symbol and footprint creation, schematic and netlist generation.

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.
