w_dass32c.gif When hauling perishable goods and materials, it’s critical for buyers and suppliers to seek cost efficiencies and deliver in a timely manner. To help, Jeremy Singley collaborated with Bob Sliwa to create an ultra-aerodynamic tractor-trailer that could reduce draft and lower fuel consumption by up to 25 percent. This article discusses how these innovators used SOLIDWORKS design software to create a SuperTruck prototype.

When it comes to defense, all operations require a high degree of coordination and processing. As a result, airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) has become a crucial component of military activity. In order to maintain stealth and avoid detection, ISR missions are forced to fly at extremely high altitudes. These altitudes present a number of environmental obstacles such as extreme temperature ranges or fluctuating atmospheric pressure – most of which cannot normally be handled by commercially available components. However, because of rising costs and time delays, developing application-specific hardware is becoming less feasible. Using a real-life case study, this white paper explores in great detail a scenario in which Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components were able to be used for a critical, extreme environment application. Check out this report, and see if cost-saving commercial COTS components can possibly be utilized for your specific needs.

However, obstacles such as the increased need for security and shorter product design cycle times are making it difficult for firms to keep up with consumer demands. 

What’s more, these troubles are being compounded by old notions of how a product should be created. 

To keep up with the changing nature of today’s dynamic consumer electronics market, firms need to rethink how they approach product design. In this white paper by VDC Research, authors Andre Girard and Chris Rommel offer their best advice for adapting to this changing landscape and putting your group in a position to succeed in the long term. 

In this white paper you’ll learn the following: 

  • Which tools you can use to better manage product development
  • How to establish a comprehensive product testing plan
  • How to improve the way you manage software supply chains

Today's innovative companies are built on the shoulders of the engineering teams responsible for designing products. Smart companies invest in tools that translate into better products. A modern Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution removes tedious admin responsibilities, streamlines the design environment, and empowers engineers to collaborate more efficiently with other departments. 

In short, PLM enables engineers to make the organization more profitable by allowing them to spend more time focused on the task they do best: designing innovative, world-class products. 
In this whitepaper, we focus on how PLM empowers engineers to spend more time on product design by optimizing their relationship with the different departments across the organization with which they must interact.

Often small to medium-sized businesses make do with the tools they have to manage their product data. Paper, spreadsheets and email are often used throughout the product development and engineering change management processes. These tools can wreak havoc when product information is released into production.

But there’s no need to settle for inefficient, frustrating product change management. There are other options to help control product information and share changes across the organization and supply chain.

This whitepaper outlines three product change management realities which may be holding you back and five fixes to rescue your change process.

New advancements in battery technology are having a disruptive impact on product design in the dynamic consumer electronics sector.

It's a domino effect. When a change to a component occurs there's a rapid engineering effort to incorporate, source and purchase the component. Manufacturing line/tooling, cut-ins, as well as the production floor are impacted and then there's dealing with scrap and rework, marketing and servicing.

Companies without the vision and solution to respond to change and adopt new technologies quickly could lose in this competitive fast-paced high tech market.

Discover how Arena PLM helps product companies shift product direction quickly to turn today's disruptive changes into tomorrow's "Next Big Thing".

Especially for switch-mode power supplies (SMPSs), the printed circuit board (PCB) layout is a critical but often under appreciated step in achieving proper performance and reliability. Errors in the PCB layout cause a variety of misbehaviors including poor output voltage regulation, switching jitter, and even device failure. Issues like these should be avoided at all costs, since fixing them usually requires a PCB design modification. However, these pitfalls are easily circumvented if time and thought are spent during the PCB layout process before the first PCBs are ever ordered. This article presents five simple steps to ensure that your next step-down converter’s PCB layout is robust and ready for prototyping. When designing a server, tablet, or electronic point-ofsale machine, a best-practice option with the least risk is to simply copy the PCB layout example found on the evaluation module (EVM) and shown in the datasheet. However, this may not always be possible for various reasons. This article was created for these cases and details a five-step procedure to design a good PCB layout for any TPS62xxx integrated-switch, step-down converter. The internal MOSFETs and integrated loop-compensation circuitry greatly simplify the PCB layout of these devices by reducing the difficulty and time required to do the PCB layout. The versatile TPS62130A is used as the example step-down converter, which can be used in each of the above applications.
