In some instances, geometrically irregular or complex pad shapes may be required in your designs, and getting them just right can drain a significant amount of time and manual effort. Learn how to save time and energy by quickly implementing complex pad shapes into your PCB design in Altium Designer. Read on to find out more.
PCB design can end up taking more time if it is not planned out properly when moving from conceptual spec to actual design. There are a lot of factors to consider at once. For example, where to place major components to optimize space and performance, and which one to drop first. You’ll also need to consider where subsystems fit and which placement will result in the cleanest traces. These initial decisions can be daunting and lead to either procrastination or having to completely start over. Read on to find a solution for this!
During the fabrication & manufacturing process, issues commonly arise due to misaligned holes or undesirable drill breakouts. Learn how including teardrops in your designs can help you to improve the quality and yield of your manufactured PCB with precise execution of vias and pads.
Medical wearables need to be sleek, unencumbered, and compact; able to collect meaningful medical data with few (or no) wires attached to the patient. This creates demand for flexible board designs. While you’re trying hard to push the limits of space, to use smart materials, and to minimize its footprint, it can be damn annoying when you fall out of a board outline (particularly when dealing with irregular board shapes). Read on to find out how to do this!
Implementing a proper system for ECAD data library management enhances team productivity and efficiency to help you deliver products on time and within budget. Read on to learn more.
With wearable technology tracking progress however, fitness suddenly became measurable. Future performance could be compared graphically with past performance, and small, achievable goals could be continuously set and met. This gave people the ability to see exactly what they were hoping to accomplish. Instead of reaching forever for some far-off notion of fitness, people could clearly see the next goal to reach. That inspired people to reach it. Once they had it in hand, they reached for the next goal. How wearable technology really helped people was by giving them hope.
