  1. 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 Request Free!

  4. 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.

  5. 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. Request Free! View the full article
  6.

  8. 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. Request Free! View the full article
  9. Of the many types of intelligent sensors on the market, microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors may be the most interesting as they have a wide footprint in the intelligent sensor market and command an industry that exceeded $11 billion in sales in 2016. In fact, the MEMS smart sensor market looks as if it has the potential to grow even further as it expands into the rapidly blooming consumer electronics market. But how does a company tap into the potential afforded by MEMS sensors, and are there strategies for developing MEMS smart sensor-enabled products? In this white paper you will learn: The history of the development of the MEMS smart sensor market Why smart sensors, and in particular, MEMS sensors are critical in modern product design. What design flows and strategies work best for the development of MEMS-enabled products and services. Request Free! View the full article

  15. Our analysis focused on their level of satisfaction with their CAD systems across several dimensions of performance. This research report is designed to help product development teams benchmark their CAD experience relative to other teams. Here are a few selected insights that we gleaned from the survey data: While 88% of respondents said that it was important to standardize on a single CAD system, less than half of them reported doing so. Users reported dissatisfaction with many aspects of their CAD software, especially cost and ease of use. Reports of dissatisfaction correlated strongly and negatively with success in achieving on-time product launches and minimizing product development costs. The data supporting these findings are presented in charts and graphics in this 27-page report. Request Free! View the full article
