                              Round dial thermostat
                              For the longest time, the humdrum thermostat was ignored by startups and hardware designers. Contemporary examples were lacking in features: read the thermometer, set the temperature. Nest, founded in 2011, set out to create a disruptive thermostat that turned this concept on its head. By taking advantage of cheaper, higher performing PCB technology that can fit into smaller spaces, Nest was able to introduce a “smart” thermostat, one that can anticipate your heating and cooling choices. However, only through efficient design and application of new PCB technologies Nest was able to create a successful entrant in the “smart home” space. Read on to find out they did it.

                              As engineers, one of our worst nightmares is doing the same pointless thing over and over again. Adopting a modular design philosophy for Internet of Things PCBs will save you from that monotony. Optimize your design process and save time, money, and sanity, by reusing your PCB designs.

                              A PCB damaged by immersion in water
                              A common source of PCB malfunctions, especially in outdoor environments, comes from moisture on the boards. Fortunately, there are several options for protecting your boards when they are deployed. Read on to learn which is best for your application.
                              save space save money
                              The modern designer is always being pushed to go smaller and cheaper. Blind and buried vias can help you save space and money on your HDI PCB. Blind and buried vias help reduce outer layer usage, leaving more room for SMTs and BGA breakout channels. Read on to find out more!
                              integrated simulator header pcb sim analysis
                              Integrated Circuit Simulation: integrated simulator, or simulating ICs? You aren’t a newbie anymore but here’s why we say keep circuit simulation in your toolkit. As your career progresses, you become more confident. You’ll tend to collect circuits you know work well in different designs - power supplies, filters, oscillators etc. Most of the time these reusable blocks will work great in any place you choose to use them, but using simulation can still save your bacon.
