                              Choosing the right licensing check marks the box
                              By Colby Siemer, Mar 23, 2017
                              Remember when most professional PCB software came attached with a Hardware Dongle? Thankfully those days are over and software licensing models have evolved. What is best? Perpetual licensing with optional subscriptions, because you can buy your software and OWN it too.
                              Consistency is key for professional PCB software
                              By Colby Siemer, Mar 21, 2017
                              Software should utilize a common user interface that is consistent with the operating system environment. Nothing is quite as awkward as attempting to do something standard and not getting the expected outcome especially in the realm of Professional PCB Software. Keep your momentum, work with intuitive and professional PCB design tools.

                              Manually creating or resizing a touch sensor’s complex vendor/technology-specific patterns can be both difficult and time-consuming. Fortunately, there is an automated solution, which enables the easy creation and modification of intricate touch sensor shapes. Read on to learn more.

                              As our designs get more complex, they require more communication between the devices themselves and the design teams. The design community, ECAD, MCAD, and software, must come together to facilitate successful creation of IoT products. Collaboration between design teams doesn’t have to be a hassle. We should strive to maximize collaboration in our design process to create higher quality products.

                              Everyone has a personal story about the things that brought them into hardware engineering. Mine stems from a desire to work on designing new technology to make people’s lives better. Designing new technologies can have ripple effects that you could never predict. What is your dream project?
