EMA Design Automation®, a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, is launching a Match the Circuits Contest through the end of June.
Engineers often utilize capacitors and inductors to filter out unwanted signals, however if the wrong configuration is chosen, it can yield opposite results. This contest puts engineers' knowledge of filters to the test and highlights an element that’s essential to bringing a successful product to market: ensuring correct circuit function early in the design process. SPICE simulators like, PSpice help engineers ensure correct circuit operation through up front simulation and allows them to make informed decisions regarding electrical behavior, quickly identify errors, preserve reliability, and improve performance.
To enter, participants must identify and match circuits to their associated waveforms for a chance to will $100.00 Amazon gift card. The contest will be available for submissions until June 30, 2022, with winners announced on July 1, 2022.

In this interview, Editor Andy Shaughnessy speaks with Manny Marcano, president of EMA EDA Automation, who shares an update on the company's current level of business operations under COVID-19 restrictions. Marcano explains that EMA is classified as an essential business due to its work with the defense segment and that employees are now working from home. He also discusses the company's free work-from-home license offer and why he is available to help any designers or design engineers who have questions during these changing times.

Many PCB design projects miss schedule commitments by 70% due to delayed routing and lack of automation. Moreover, due to late-stage design changes, schedules are not met, and the addition of those new items takes 10 times longer or more to incorporate than if changes were added from the beginning. Fortunately, over the past several years, powerful routing capabilities have been added that allow designers to address a number of specific, critical tasks.
