Embrace the Versatility of Design Engineering with Electronic Applications
The versatility of design engineering can include 3D modeling, multi-board enclosures, managing EMI and other signal and power integrity demands, and more.
Contour Arc Routing
Confidently and accurately route though any design with ease improving your productivity. Draw evenly spaced curved traces at any angle to meet your PCB design needs.
Stackup By Zone
Assign stack-up to any zone enables a faster and more efficient flex/rigid-flex design creation.
Proper Multi-board Form Factor Achieved Through 3D Visualization
New products often require observing multi-board design form factor conditions. Managing the PCB design correctly occurs through the application of design tools.
3D Modeling for PCB Systems: The Quest for Security Despite Complexity
3D modeling for PCB systems provides excellent design support for flex, rigid-flex, and multi-board designs.
PCB Design that Requires MCAD/ECAD Collaboration
Without good MCAD/ECAD collaboration, your carefully created circuitry could bog down in physical design. You need tools that are designed to work together.
FLEXing Like a PCB Expert
Flex PCB design has many advantages. Along with those benefits come new design challenges that weren’t present in “standard” 2D PCBs. This e-book discusses common flex design issues and...
Putting Wearables to Work: How Your Wearable Health Tracker Keeps You and Your Doctor Connected
With Apple’s “Wearable” category of sales setting a new record this September with growth over 50%, and FitBit seeing growth in both trackers...
The Next Generation of Prosthetics
We may think of prosthetics as devices created to enable basic functions, such as walking or grasping an object. Regarded as a necessity, but not an asset, prosthetics of the past...
Wearable Technology: Types of Materials Used
Wearable tech is officially the next big innovation in technology, and its popularity has skyrocketed in the past few years. It seems like every few months...
Flexible Circuit Bending
Bend flex circuitry in your design individually or in groups to verify assembly and fit, and see any collisions that might happen when folded.
