ExpressPCB Announces ExpressSCH Plus and ExpressPCB Plus Version 3.1

Reading time ( words)

ExpressPCB® is excited to announce the expansion of its Schematic Link and Netlist Validation tools to fully support the use of symbols in ExpressCSH Plus®. With the release of ExpressPCB Plus® Layout Software version 3.1 they expand the designer’s ability to create complex, multipage schematics, and fully validate the PCB layout.

ExpressPCB customers were very responsive to the version 3.1 release, and provided excellent feedback to help guide the development of the latest version.  With more robust support of symbols used in ExpressSCH Plus, there is now improved speed, stability, and quality of results in the Schematic Link and Netlist Validation tools.

“Our user community has emphasized the importance of schematic link and support for symbols in their design practices.  We took the time to work directly with several customers as we developed our tools, to address their needs.  The result is a robust tool set that helps designers projects move from concept to reality with confidence.” -  Michael Hebda, Product Manager

With additional updates to the SnapEDA API to provide current component pricing, availability, and purchase links; ExpressPCB continues to build simple, easy to use solutions for the overall design and fabrication processes.

The Schematic and Layout tools are simple and unencumbered by multiple layers of menus, options and settings that more advanced PCB Design suites require mastering before you even start on your design project.  If time is of the essence and there is a need to quickly turn out a prototype to get a project off the ground, then ExpressPCB is a great choice.

A New Sourcing Paradigm

09/20/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We’ve seen many changes over the past few years, and nowhere are they more evident than in the world of sourcing components. Sourcing has become one of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers and design engineers today. Gone are the days of procuring parts from a single source, and communication between stakeholders and distributors is critical. But as we learned in a conversation with I-Connect007 columnist Kelly Dack, PCB designers can use certain layout strategies to plan for the unexpected, such as leaving extra real estate so that smaller components can be replaced by larger, readily available parts if the originals become “unobtainium.”

Happy’s Design Tips for Material Conservation

08/25/2022 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
For this issue, Happy Holden provided a range of options for designers who are seeking to conserve materials in their next design. He also offered an example of the relative cost index, or RCI, that he developed at HP exclusively for PCB design. With this RCI, designers can figure out the relative cost of a new design compared to an eight-layer through-hole board. We hope you can use this handy formula on your next design job.
