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

The Survey Said: Designing Around Missing Data

One of the best tools we have for keeping our fingers on the pulse of the industry is the reader survey. When we want to find out what’s going on, we just ask. Fortunately, our readers are not a shy bunch of folks. They don’t mind sharing—the good, the bad, and the ugly. In a recent survey, we asked our PCB designer readers, “What missing information or data (impedance requirements, library data, etc.) do you find yourself having to ‘design around’?”
