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.

PADS Paper: 10 Things to Know about Thermal DesignJune 8, 2016 | Mentor Graphics
Estimated reading time: Less then a minute
As designs get smaller, power densities at all packaging levels increase dramatically. Removing heat is critical to the operation and long-term reliability of electronics, and component temperatures within specification are the universal criteria used to determine the acceptability of a design.
Cooling solutions directly add weight, volume, and cost to the product, without delivering any functional benefit. What they provide is reliability. Without cooling, most electronic products would fail in a matter of minutes. Leakage current, and thus leakage power, goes up with smaller die-level feature sizes.
Because leakage is temperature-dependent, thermal design is more important. How should engineers who develop products with complex and/or high-power electronics ensure the thermal performance of their products while meeting other design criteria?
To answer this question, this PADS paper will take a look at 10 things you should know about thermal design of electronic products. To download this paper, click here.
