Words of Advice: The OEM Systems Designer


Reading time ( words)

In a recent survey, we asked the following question: What advice would you give an OEM systems designer? Here are a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

  1. Solidify the design, and don’t push for too many changes unless you want to start from scratch.
  2. Simulate the power.
  3. Always have good margins on designs in comparison to the manufacturer’s capabilities.
  4. State very clearly all of the parts and components.
  5. Get a good IPC footprint design program.
