Mentor Webinar January 23: Electro-Mechanical Co-Design


Reading time ( words)

Poor communication between PCB designers and mechanical engineers can cause projects to miss their time-to-market and cost targets by 50% or more. When these teams can collaborate in real time to develop a virtual prototype of the finished product, they can be assured that the PCBs will fit perfectly in their mechanical housing prior to fabrication.

This live webinar, scheduled for January 23, 2019, will reveal how electro-mechanical co-design can enable you to meet your cost and time-to-market goals, allowing you to beat your competitors to market and deliver higher quality products.

Presenters are John McMillan, a member of the PADS Technical Marketing team, and Brent Klingforth, a technical marketing engineer.

What Attendees Will Learn

  • How to break down the barriers between PCB design and mechanical design domains with PADS Professional’s MCAD Collaborator
  • Demonstration of an actual electro-mechanical co-design session from the PCB designer and MCAD tool user’s perspective
  • How to accelerate time-to-market, eliminate re-spins, and reduce product cost with electro-mechanical collaboration

Who Should Attend

  • PCB and mechanical designers
  • CAD managers

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.

Bridging the Simulation Tool Divide

04/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Todd Westerhoff of Siemens EDA recently spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team about the divide between users of high-powered enterprise simulation tools and those who need a more practical tool for everyday use, and how Siemens is working to bridge the gap. Todd also shared his views on why so many engineers do not use simulation, as well as advice for engineers just getting started with simulation tools.

Barry Olney’s High-Speed Simulation Primer

04/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
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.
