Preparing for an IoT Edge Project

The same holds true for IoT Edge applications. But what kind of planning do you have to do up front before you begin developing a cutting edge IoT product? What kind of planning template should you put in place to organize your team’s development efforts? Is there one right way to create a IoT Edge plan? Or are there many schemes that will effectively lead your team to a successful product design? There are so many questions surrounding the initial design stages of developing an IoT Edge project, that even getting started can seem daunting. In this white paper, you will learn: The types of IoT Edge planning scenarios that work best What kind of documentation makes these plans valuable for designers How to best outline a plan for a design’s composition to ensure product success

Basics of Design--Circuit Breakers

Maybe 100s, possibly 1000s, and most, if not all of them contain one or more types of circuit breakers. But, why? 

Well, circuit breakers are a critical piece of electronic technology that keep systems from frying and shorting out when an overload of current makes its way to a device. Without these bit of circuitry, most electronic systems would be doomed sooner rather than later. 

And while circuit breakers may seem both critical and commonplace, new applications for the technology are being developed in some rapidly emerging electronics fields like solar energy, marine electronics and more. So, if you think you know all there is to know about circuit breakers, you might think twice, and catch up on what’s new with this white paper.

Cold Forming: A Cost Effective Alternative to Machining Small Parts

Components that require exceptionally tight dimensional tolerances and advanced surface finishes can end up costing a lot of money when manufactured through traditional machining methods. Although conventional wisdom states that cold forming is an even more expensive option, this is simply not the case when it comes to producing high quantities of complex precision shapes. According to this informative whitepaper, not only does precision cold forming provide tight tolerances, dimensional reliability, and better surface finishes, it also yields near-net-shape components that require very little secondary machining/processing. This in turn reduces the amount of raw material that is being wasted, thus saving money. Check out this white paper to learn more about the art and science behind the cold forming process, and see if cold forming is the right method for your precision needs.

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.

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.

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.

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.
