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.

Printed circuit boards are driving the electronics industry forward. As a PCB designer, it is essential to assess your needs, both current and future, when choosing a PCB design system that is right for you. Although this may seem like a daunting task, we have compiled a list of necessary features available within CAD tools in order to develop a quick PCB Design System checklist to help aid you in your search. The following list should help guide your decision by assessing the benefits of various different functionalities and what types of questions should you ask yourself or your software provider before making a decision.

In today's high-speed society, there is an increasing pressure to remain on the cutting edge of electronics. Design teams are in a race with their competitors to bring their products to market first all while packing more functionality and performance in with each design iteration. In order to achieve these tight deadlines, high-performance design planning and routing is becoming increasingly important. As a result, PCB designers are encouraged to move from traditional pen and paper planning to a faster more reliable design planning and routing process. Cadence has introduced sophisticated tools into their software to aid in the design process offering new value to their customers.
