EMA Design Automation Webinar Addresses Testing Challenges in PCB Design

Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation is offering a free webinar titled “What PCB Design Engineers Need to Know,” on Wednesday, July 29th from 2-3:00 p.m. EDT.

This webinar will focus on the importance of ensuring your PCB design is optimized for testing and how to implement testing capabilities during the schematic and layout phase to avoid testing challenges after the board has been manufactured.

Attendees will learn:

  • The importance of incorporating testing needs into your PCB design
  • What should be tested within your design and why to avoid shorts, bad parts, invisible parts etc.
  • Common test challenges and misconceptions
  • Tips and tricks on how to implement these test needs

Barry Olney’s High-Speed Simulation Primer

04/09/2021 | Barry Olney, In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd
The I-Connect007 editorial team recently spoke with Barry Olney of iCD about simulation. Barry, a columnist for Design007 Magazine, explains why simulation tools can have such a steep learning curve, and why many design engineers are still not using simulation on complex high-speed designs.

Eliminating ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out’ With Checks and Balances

03/26/2021 | Nick Barbin, Optimum Design Associates
The proverbial saying “garbage in, garbage out” holds true in the electronic product development world. PCB designers stand squarely in the middle of a busy information intersection flowing with inputs and outputs. Missing or bad information at the beginning of a design project will undoubtedly lead to board re-spins, increased costs, and most importantly, a delayed product release. The same can be said about the PCB designer who doesn’t provide a fully checked and comprehensive data package to the downstream manufacturers, i.e., “throwing it over the fence.”

Turning ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out' into ‘Good In, Good Out’

03/23/2021 | Tamara Jovanovic, Happiest Baby
In the PCB design cycle, it is so easy to unintentionally introduce “garbage” into your system. Unless you have time to extensively check everything you bring in from an external source, it is very likely that something will not match up with your design data. In the end, this means you’ll have to put more work into your design and basically reverse-engineer a part that was supposed to save you time and effort.
