Virtualization in Industrial Plants

With the cost savings and efficiency of virtualization comes significant risk. Unfortunately, virtualization makes downtime even more damaging and costly. Before virtualization, when one server hosted one application, only one process stopped if that server went down. But with virtualized servers running multiple applications, a crash can negatively affect multiple processes.

Unplanned downtime of Industrial Control Systems; including SCADA, HMI and MES are the #1 enemy of enhanced productivity and higher efficiencies and a major driver of unplanned costs.

Learn the Pillars of Always-on Virtualization in Industrial Automation: Monitoring Your Systems Avoiding Downtime (or Failover) Minimizing Planned Downtime Simplified Management Uncomplicated Serviceability

Engineering Licensing -- The Definitive Guide

Add to those licenses the additional requirements tacked on by local municipalities, states and federal governments, and it becomes obvious that a dedicated staff of license-compliant professionals is required to keep your business open. 

But licensing requirements shouldn’t be a hurdle to success. In fact, with proactive management, licensing can boost growth, speed operations and even provide financial returns. It is also essential to have a team of dedicated compliance specialists on your payroll, or you can look to outsource your licensing plan to a third party dedicated to keeping you up to date and ahead of the regulatory curve.

Designing 3D-Printed Jigs and Fixtures

Not only can 3D printing be used to rapidly prototype designs in development, but it can also be used to create useful tools like jigs and fixtures. 

But creating a jig or fixture for an assembly line using additive manufacturing isn’t exactly the same as building a tool with subtractive manufacturing techniques. In fact, a number of factors unique to 3D printing can be leveraged to reduce the cost of creating fixtures, shorten their development time and make for a more productive workflow. 

In this white paper you will learn:  What applications are best suited for 3D-printed jigs and fixtures The design basics associated with jig and fixture development The best practices for designing 3D-printed fixtures

Discover Unknown PCB Design Issues with Hyperlynx DRC

Given that reality, its important for engineers to perform design checks throughout the product development process. But, surprisingly, few product design teams routinely undertake design checks throughout the development process. One of the biggest factors contributing to this hesitancy to go through checks are several myths that design checks are complex, time consuming and expensive. However, these myths are being dispelled as new tools are making design checks more manageable. 

In this white paper you will learn about:  The biggest myths that influence design check hesitancy Why its critical to verify a design before a layout is compete How Hyperlynx DRC can help reduce design problem whether a project is ruled by a high speed design paradigm or a low-frequency design schedule.

Seven Habits of Highly Efficient PCB Designers

In essence, every PCB design is a complex puzzle that requires a designer to incorporate critical components and tight schematics into a piece of technology that is governed by rules, constraints and industry standards. So, it stands to reason that PCB designers should develop habits that make their jobs easier. 

But what are the habits that can make PCB design simpler and more effective. Mentor Graphics has compiled a list of the seven habits that are most common among successful PCB design teams, and they speak to all PCB engineers, whether you and your team are novices, or old hands. 

In this white paper you will learn about:  The seven common habits that highly effective PCB designers employ. How you can integrate these habits into your PCB design strategy. What results you can hope to see from improving your PDB design habits.

Preventing IoT Edge Device Vulnerabilities

The very firmware and hardware that is enabling widespread connectivity is also being exploited for nefarious ends. In fact, in the recent past, no fewer than six major IoT vulnerabilities were discovered in consumer electronics by white hat hackers looking to publicly expose the vulnerabilities of these products. These cases highlight that the complexity inherent within these electronics prevents a design team’s ability to ensure that a product is 100 percent safe from malicious actors. However, it is necessary that designers do their due diligence to reduce the chance of edge IoT hacking.  In this white paper you will learn:  What type of vulnerabilities are being exploited in edge IoT hardware. How malicious actors are using these vulnerabilities. What type of test plans your team can develop to make your IoT edge devices safer for your customers.
