Has the surge of technological advances created a fleet of designers who lack fundamental PCB design knowledge, or has it spurred innovation by no longer allowing designers to be bound by rules?

Getting the timing just right in your PCB design is critical to ensuring accurate results. Software like our TimingDesigner tool can report status of timing requirements in real time; helping to fix errors along the way. Many PCB designers find it is necessary to check static timing at certain strategic development points along the way, but it helps to first understand this purpose. Simply put, periodic timing analysis checks will aid in determining why your design fails to meet constraints by providing context of signal dependencies which can pinpoint troublesome timing relationships.

We know this time of year can be particularly stress-filled for our customers with end-of-year deadlines, and paperwork in addition to their home holiday preparations. Every year around this time, we try to host a fun contest to get your minds off the stress of the season and get your creative juices flowing. This year is a take on a traditional holiday song, “12 days of Christmas”. For this contest, give us your best Electrical Engineering rendition of this song to win one of Four Prizes!

Managing all the facets of PCB design data can be a difficult task to tackle. As the electronics market continues to thrive, circuits have become more complex with shorter design cycles and less room for error. As a result, the old ways of managing PCB design data and communicating changes across the organization are no longer sufficient. In a recent webinar, Connecting OrCAD/Allegro with your PLM, we cover the growing complexities of data management and discuss ways to resolve issues through an integrated solution.

Our most recent webinar, Constraint-driven design with OrCAD Capture, provided attendees with an overview of Constraint Manager for OrCAD. It is a new option available directly within the OrCAD Capture interface and can help define and embed constraints at the beginning of the design process—ensuring they will be communicated clearly. In addition to the overview on constraint-driven design, Janine Flagg, one of our senior field applications engineers, provided an in-depth demo on the product and answered any questions attendees may have had.
