                              By making variations of a baseline product, the new products can address different markets and requirements. But how do you go about keeping all of your design variants synchronized?

                              A common disagreement between electrical engineers that I’ve run across is that it’s best practice to place a bypass capacitor “before the circuit” on the PCB. Some folks are such diehard followers of the “before the circuit” rule that they will even complicate the PCB design to accomplish this. I am a firm believer in the “less is more” principles of design, and value simplicity and elegance of design over these sort of rules. However, is there some truth to this obsession with bypass capacitor placement? Read on to find out!

                              Working through a legacy design can be intimidating, but board insight colors allow for a comprehensive understanding of the inner workings of the board in an easy-to-use format. Read on to learn more.

                              In order to scale up your designs and break your habit of making last minute “hacks” (pin swapping, gate swapping, etc.), we recommend syncing your schematics and PCB layouts. Using a Unified Data Model approach can help. Read on to learn more.

                              Ensuring your initial rules are properly applied the first time is critical to eliminating the need for redesign. By creating conditional limitations and implementing embedded design rules, you can circumvent the potential for error to avoid respins and ensure precise power ratings in your PCB layout. Read on to learn more.
                              Today’s products are designed by a team of experts, and without the ability to collaborate time is wasted and errors are introduced. Learn about how to select the best tool to make PCB design collaboration easy.
