“Throw it over the wall” has traditionally been the mindset when dealing with updates and changes between the ECAD and MCAD domains. As a result of this strategy, updates and synchronization points tend to be infrequent. When issues are found, design teams may need to walk back through a multitude of changes and design decisions to solve the problems identified. This approach is inherently inefficient and error-prone, leading to schedule delays and product development issues.

Moving a design from concept to a completed board is an involved process—especially when the design is outsourced—there are many opportunities for problems to arise. In order to mitigate potential issues, effective communication with your design partner is essential. This is where having a PCB design tool in-house, like OrCAD PCB Editor, can help. Having an in-house design tool can help you gain control over your design process, shorten your design cycle, and reduce overall costs. Still not sure how? Below we listed eight reasons having a PCB design tool in-house is a smart idea.
