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.

Before we begin it is important to note nothing is ever 100% secure. A device that is secure one day can easily become vulnerable the next day. That being said, increasing security measures in modern devices, especially hyper-connected devices such as IoT products, is an important on-going topic of conversation. Although traditionally the industry has relied heavily on software-based cyber security measures, in today’s wired world engineers are beginning to find ways of implementing hardware security into their designs for an extra layer of protection from hackers and reverse engineering.

Elon Musk makes a habit of revolutionizing industries. First it was electric cars, then space travel, and now mass transit with the Hyperloop project. The Hyperloop is what Musk calls “a cross between a Concorde, a railgun, and an air hockey table,” it’s a pod system which runs in low-pressure tubes at more than airline speed. Since its inception, Musk has been working towards making the Hyperloop a reality by engaging engineers from companies like Telsa and SpaceX.
