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.

When considering what simulation software is right for you some good questions to contemplate are, “can it help me accomplish my objectives and goals?” and “how well can the software help me test my design for failures and maximize my performance without increasing costs?" We may be biased, but our answer to those questions is…PSpice.

Sigrity technologists guide you step by step on how to use the Sigrity Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) simulator to accurately predict the impact of simultaneous switching noise (SSN) in a system context. A PCB layout is directly connected to a system topology without having to perform an S-parameter extraction. This “FDTD-direct” methodology overcomes the challenge faced by SI engineers who fear accuracy could be compromised when converting an S-parameter to a simplified broadband spice model.

According to the AIS (American Institute of Stress), 43 percent of working adults suffer from stress. While stress in the workplace can’t always be avoided, there are a variety of coping techniques which work to minimize its effects—these range from deep breathing and massage therapies, to visual imagery and self-hypnosis. Unfortunately, these coping techniques will not help in addressing component stress.
