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.

In With the New at Cadence

08/15/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The next generation of PCB designers is coming—slowly, but surely. What will this new group of designers mean for EDA vendors like Cadence Design Systems? Andy Shaughnessy recently interviewed Dan Fernsebner, product marketing group director and a veteran EDA guy, and Bryan LaPointe, lead product engineer and representative of the younger generation. They discussed the next generation of PCB designers, some of the best ways to draw smart young people into this industry, and why the PCB designers of the future may need to have a college degree just to get an interview.

Susy Webb: Training the New Generation of Designers

08/02/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
For years, I’ve been running into Susy Webb at PCB West, where one of the classes she teaches is PCB design basics. I always ask Susy about the class, especially the attendees’ backgrounds. Over the years, her class has begun drawing more and more degreed engineers, with fewer “traditional” PCB designers attending. I asked Susy to discuss the next generation of PCB designers, some of the trends she’s seeing among new PCB designers, and the need for designers to take charge of their own design training, whether their management agrees or not.

Multi-board Design with Altium’s Ben Jordan

07/25/2018 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Not too long ago, historically speaking, most electronic products contained only one PCB. But multi-board designs have become almost ubiquitous over the past decade, and EDA software companies are working to improve and simplify the multi-board design process. Editors Andy Shaughnessy and Stephen Las Marias spoke with Ben Jordan, director of product and persona marketing for Altium, about the company’s multi-board design tools, the challenges that customers face, and the numerous trade-offs that designers must contend with while performing multi-board design.
