Sign up for Mentor’s Oct. 22 Library and Component Management Webinar


Reading time ( words)

The PCB is central to systems development, and the quality of your component libraries can have a dramatic impact on product performance, cost and quality. In a survey of the design community, when asked what were the key technologies required to improve their PCB Data Management, the two top items were:

  • Centralized Library Management: 91%
  • Component Management: 83%

Are you experiencing any of the following challenges?

  • Engineers can’t find information on current parts
  • No history tracking: who made what change, when, and why
  • No process to prevent engineers from using parts that are undesirable or obsolete
  • No process to ensure consistency and accuracy of part data
  • Inaccurate component data causing BOM issues in manufacturing
  • New parts are holding up the design process

If so, please attend the Library and Component Management Webinar at 10 am Eastern on October 22, 2015.

What you Will Learn:

  • Component library structure for the Netlist and Integrated Flows
  • Suggestions for configuring component libraries efficiently
  • How to get started with a new component library
  • How xDX DataBook can help you manage component parametric data
  • Using tools for updating and maintaining current component data

What Does Intelligent Routing Look Like?

11/27/2019 | Brent Klingforth, Mentor, a Siemens business
Many PCB design projects miss schedule commitments by 70% due to delayed routing and lack of automation. Moreover, due to late-stage design changes, schedules are not met, and the addition of those new items takes 10 times longer or more to incorporate than if changes were added from the beginning. Fortunately, over the past several years, powerful routing capabilities have been added that allow designers to address a number of specific, critical tasks.

AltiumLive Frankfurt 2019: Jeremy Blum Keynote

11/26/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Blum was a great advocate of considering the PCB in its holistic context and designing beyond it. Understanding the software needs ought to be of prime importance for the designer, and he believed that writing even the most basic firmware would help to ensure that the resulting electronics would be debuggable and equipped to handle the needs of the software development team.

A Radical New Design Perspective

11/21/2019 | Nolan Johnson, PCB007
Nolan Johnson recently interviewed Gordon Kruberg, CEO of Gumstix, which was acquired by Altium recently. While Gumstix designs and sells computer hardware products, Altium bought Gumstix for the Geppetto design software. Gordon discusses how the concepts of Geppetto are likely to influence future design methods in the Altium environment.
