  1. 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 Request Free!

  3. 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. Request Free! View the full article
  4. Now, this interconnectivity is impacting the beer brewing process, providing brewers with a consistent, reliable, data-driven experience — and serving customers with a tasty, better brew.

  7. In fact, innovative products are now critical to the success of future-thinking companies — 52 percent of companies developing smart products fear they’ll lose market share unless they continue to make products smarter. There are, however, unique challenges that come with perfecting development processes and managing complexities. This e-book, by research firm Tech-Clarity, outlines steps to successfully transforming your products into smart, connected systems. Request Free! View the full article

  10. Because of this growing complexity, integrating disparate business systems into a unified Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform is becoming increasingly important if companies want to create valuable and impactful products. While that might be obvious, the question remains: what’s the best method for unifying separate streams of information and data collection into a PLM platform? In this eBook, PLM firm Razorleaf reviews three successful PLM integration strategies that highlight how a complex PLM integration process can be made straightforward, regardless of the level of integration that your team requires. In this eBook, you will learn: Why PLM integration will ultimately be profitable for your company. The pros and cons of three types of PLM integration. The timelines and cost of PLM integration and what type of data you should consider merging in your PLM integration strategy. Request Free! View the full article
  11. While these terms have loose and varying definitions, the core ideas that underpin each of these concepts are becoming increasingly important to successful product development. Put shortly, “digitization” is the process of moving from an analog strategy for connecting product and configuration to a digital model that makes it easier to rapidly iterate product designs. While capturing data in a digital paradigm is undeniably useful, the process of transitioning from an analog to digital paradigm can be daunting. To make the job easier, companies should consider investing in Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) software that can eliminate many of the struggles often found in analog to digital transitions. For those considering this switch, the following eBook will be a valuable roadmap for their transition. In this eBook you will learn: What MBE is and why it matters. Why it is critical to integrate MBE with a Product Innovation Platform. How MBE can help maximize the data that informs product design decisions. Request Free! View the full article
  12. To complicate matters further, the materials used in chip layouts and their pre-manufacture simulations are treated as if they provide an “ideal” connection between different layers of a device. However, that “ideal” state isn’t matched in reality. In fact, many chip layouts contain unwanted parasitic resistance, induction and capacitance points that are created through the interplay of the densely sandwiched layers that make up a chip. These parasitic nodes can wreak havoc on the performance of a chip and, therefore, must be extracted from a design before it’s sent off for manufacture. But how does a layout designer detect these parasitic points on chip design? In this 10-page white paper, you will learn about a platform integration which provides designers with a fast, highly accurate, and multi-purpose parasitic extraction tool that enables post-layout simulation across a wide range of designs and advanced process nodes.

  13. Given that IC design teams are often working collaboratively across the globe, companies have chosen to implement parallel design workflows to keep disparate teams on the same page. However, these parallel systems can prove to be a problem. If one team makes a mistake in their design, it often affects the work of another team, creating knock-on problems that can delay a release. This nine-page white paper discusses how managing design integrity from cell and block design through tapeout in parallel design implementation flows is crucial to synchronize design elements between teams and avoid costly delays. Managing the integrity of data during design iteration or FEOL/BEOL staged tapeout flows can prevent delays during implementation and ensure the data being sent to be manufactured is what was intended.
