Rigid-flex: Designing in 3D
In this month’s issue, our expert contributors share their best tips, tricks and techniques for designing rigid-flex circuits. If you’re a rigid board designer considering moving into the 3D world of rigid-flex, this issue is just what the doctor ordered!
Simulation, Analysis, and AI
Getting today’s designs “right the first time” is critical, especially with costly advanced PCBs. Simulation and analysis software tools can help you in the fight to eliminate respins. They’re not magical, but they can predict the future of your design.
Advanced, Complex & Emerging Designs
This month, our contributors focus on designing PCBs with advanced, complex and emerging technologies. We investigate design strategies for boards that are on the cutting edge of technology, or crazily complex, or so new that designers are still writing the rules as they go.

Ex Officio: Advice From Designers Who Recently Began TelecommutingJune 23, 2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
Most PCB designers are now working from home as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown. In a recent Design007 Magazine survey, we asked the following question: What lessons have you learned since you began designing PCBs from home?
Here are just a few of the comments, edited slightly for clarity:
- Microsoft Teams can be a very powerful tool.
- Clear documentation becomes the easier route, rather than frequent interaction.
- There is an art to knowing whether a call, a message, or a video conference is the right path for a given issue.
- Establish a reasonable working schedule, and at the end of the scheduled time, actually leave that office/room.
- I tried talking to myself, but it made no sense.
An upcoming issue of Design007 Magazine will shine an office lamp on the PCB designers who are now working remotely.
