Global PCB Design Software Market Report

Reading time ( words)

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global PCB Design Software Market 2014-2018" report to their offering. The Global PCB Design Software market to grow at a CAGR of 5.86% over the period 2013-2018.

A PCB design software is a subpart of an electronic design automation (EDA) tool. It is an open-source and free of cost software used to design the layout of a PCB. Designing the layouts and schematics of a PCB, which was initially drawn manually, now is replaced by PCB design software. PCB design software helps designers to visualize the proper layouts of the design, which is then printed using digital printing technology. This software helps increase productivity by reducing the manual interventions on complex designing processes and hence increasing the overall accuracy.

Increased use of electronics in modern cars is one of the future trends that is expected to drive the growth of the PCB design software market worldwide.

According to the report, the need to reduce the time-to-market is one of the major growth drivers in the Global PCB Design Software market. PCB design software improves the time-to-market of a product by reducing the PCB design cycle time and the PCB testing time.

Further, the report states that easily available open-source PCB design software is one of the key challenges of the Global PCB Design Software market. There are many websites that offer open-source PCB design software; this adversely affects the sales of commercial PCB design software in the market.

Paving the Way for 400Gb Ethernet and 5G

06/26/2018 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
This article briefly introduces the 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4) and its application in 400 Gigabit Ethernet (400GbE), to support the booming data traffic volume in conjunction with the deployment of 5G mobile communications. Furthermore, this article also highlights the essential pre-layout effort from signal integrity perspective for physical (PHY) link design on a PCB, including material selection, transmission line design and channel simulation to support 56Gbps data rate that paves the way for seamless communication in 400GbE.

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals

06/25/2018 | Dave Lackey and Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
The design process is arguably the most important part of the flex circuit procurement process. The decisions made in the design process will have a lasting impact, for better or worse, throughout the manufacturing cycle. In advance of providing important details about the actual construction of the flex circuit, it is of value to provide some sort of understanding of the expected use environment for the finished product.
