PCB Design for Sustainable Manufacturing
We are rapidly approaching a time when the standard for manufacturing will be sustainability. Choosing components and advocating for smarter material selection are only two of the ways to accomplish.
So you’ve created a circuit diagram with OrCAD Capture, you’ve already run a design rule check (DRC), and you’re ready to verify your circuit’s electrical performance. How do you do it? While...
The Secret Language of the Printed Circuit Board Designer
The PCB Designer position is a hub where a lot of abstract and concrete information is funneled into a physical product. The boards start with the inspiration of an inventor.
High Speed Layout Guidelines for PCB Design
Stepping into high speed design can be an overwhelming experience if you don’t know what’s coming. Here are some high speed layout guidelines that can help.
Shorts and Cuts: Post-fabrication Logic Changes
Circuits are usually developed with a few unknowns at the start. Future price and availability of key components is a typical day-one risk. The wise designer leaves themselves some room to...
Design Reuse Within a PCB Layout and Beyond
As PCB Designers, we are often tasked with filling out a board with geometry that repeats itself. Better physical resemblance usually equals better performance.
So you’ve created a circuit diagram with OrCAD Capture, you’ve already run a design rule check (DRC), and you’re ready to verify your circuit’s electrical performance. How do you do it?
