The main challenge to develop the device was that it must function properly in extremely remote and harsh conditions. These devices are used in deserts, monsoon areas, mountaintops, and rainforests. Frontline health workers go door-to-door—or tent-to-tent, or even cookfire-to-cookfire—and the devices get wet, dirty, dropped on the floor, jostled around the backs of jeeps, thrown in backpacks and rucksacks, and “borrowed” by children. Developing a robust product was very high on Simprints’ list of priorities.

Designing a flex PCB prototype will test your ability for layout with time and material constraints, as well as require cost considerations.
Rigid flex PCBs can have advantages ranging far and wide from easing enclosure and mechanical constraints to improving manufacturing yields.
With STEP enclosure models giving the PCB designer access to mechanical design features inside of the layout tools, there are fewer PCB design mistakes.
Working with flex PCB designs has some unique differences from a regular PCB layout. If this is new for you, here is some information that may help you.
Many designs have been derailed by conflicts between ECAD and MCAD. Fortunately modern PCB design tools and practices have been developed to ensure MCAD and ECAD can stay in sync. Join the experts...
Electronic CAD engineering will enable and improve your designs consistently now and through the future.
Engineering design for sustainability requires a keen eye for understanding the effects of material waste and power usage.
Understanding the reason for using 3D STEP files and how the STEP files work with IPC-compliant footprints.

Lightweight, flexible electronic circuits can now be attached directly to the skin, with applications in healthcare, consumer electronics, and even gaming.
The versatility of design engineering can include 3D modeling, multi-board enclosures, managing EMI and other signal and power integrity demands, and more.
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.
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...
Assign stack-up to any zone enables a faster and more efficient flex/rigid-flex design creation.
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 provides excellent design support for flex, rigid-flex, and multi-board designs.
Without good MCAD/ECAD collaboration, your carefully created circuitry could bog down in physical design. You need tools that are designed to work together.
