Sign up for Mentor’s Oct. 22 Library and Component Management Webinar


Reading time ( words)

The PCB is central to systems development, and the quality of your component libraries can have a dramatic impact on product performance, cost and quality. In a survey of the design community, when asked what were the key technologies required to improve their PCB Data Management, the two top items were:

  • Centralized Library Management: 91%
  • Component Management: 83%

Are you experiencing any of the following challenges?

  • Engineers can’t find information on current parts
  • No history tracking: who made what change, when, and why
  • No process to prevent engineers from using parts that are undesirable or obsolete
  • No process to ensure consistency and accuracy of part data
  • Inaccurate component data causing BOM issues in manufacturing
  • New parts are holding up the design process

If so, please attend the Library and Component Management Webinar at 10 am Eastern on October 22, 2015.

What you Will Learn:

  • Component library structure for the Netlist and Integrated Flows
  • Suggestions for configuring component libraries efficiently
  • How to get started with a new component library
  • How xDX DataBook can help you manage component parametric data
  • Using tools for updating and maintaining current component data

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Cutting Respins: Journey to the Single-spin PCB

01/07/2021 | Chris Young, The Goebel Company
PCB design is more than a short sprint to the finish line; it is a journey best suited for the prepared adventurer. According to a study by Lifecycle Insights, the average PCB design project requires 2.9 respins. These respins can cost anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars—each! As an engineer/business owner, I find respins frustrating because I would rather spend my time and money applying scientific principles inventing, improving technology, and solving problems. I am not an advocate for perfectionism, but rather I focus on becoming a better adventurer. Sometimes I get to taste the sweet wine that is a single spin PCB. As fellow adventurers, let’s discuss some topics that influence unnecessary return trips on our PCB design journey: simulation, technical reviews, and interest in PCB design.
