Sign up for Mentor’s Oct. 22 Library and Component Management Webinar


Reading time ( words)

The PCB is central to systems development, and the quality of your component libraries can have a dramatic impact on product performance, cost and quality. In a survey of the design community, when asked what were the key technologies required to improve their PCB Data Management, the two top items were:

  • Centralized Library Management: 91%
  • Component Management: 83%

Are you experiencing any of the following challenges?

  • Engineers can’t find information on current parts
  • No history tracking: who made what change, when, and why
  • No process to prevent engineers from using parts that are undesirable or obsolete
  • No process to ensure consistency and accuracy of part data
  • Inaccurate component data causing BOM issues in manufacturing
  • New parts are holding up the design process

If so, please attend the Library and Component Management Webinar at 10 am Eastern on October 22, 2015.

What you Will Learn:

  • Component library structure for the Netlist and Integrated Flows
  • Suggestions for configuring component libraries efficiently
  • How to get started with a new component library
  • How xDX DataBook can help you manage component parametric data
  • Using tools for updating and maintaining current component data

This Month in Design007 Magazine: HDI Design, Landless Vias, VeCS, and More

11/09/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Andy Shaughnessy, Happy Holden, and Dan Feinberg recently met with James Hofer, general manager of Accurate Circuit Engineering, to discuss via design techniques and via reliability from the fabricator’s viewpoint. As Hofer explained, even with open lines of communication between the designer and the board shop, there are plenty of variables to contend with regarding proper via design, especially when working with PTFE materials.

Roundtable Discussion: App Notes and Fab Notes

11/09/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Andy Shaughnessy recently invited four recent contributors—Dana Korf, Jen Kolar, Mark Thompson, and Kelly Dack—to review the June and August 2020 issues of Design007 Magazine, which covered app notes and fab notes, respectively. In this wide-ranging roundtable, the group discusses some of the ongoing challenges related to incomplete and inaccurate design data and why communication can preclude many of these problems. What follows is the transcript from this conversation.

Real Time with… AltiumLive 2020: Vince Mazur Previews New Design Rule Features

11/03/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Altium Technical Marketing Manager Vince Mazur discusses his presentation at the recent AltiumLive, which focused on updates to Altium Designer's approach to creating design rules and constraints. Vince explains that these features will be more intuitive for the user, and the update, which is currently in beta, will be released in the future. The company is shifting from “rule-centric” design rules features to capabilities that are more “design-centric,” with applicable rules for each object available at one click.
