Eliminating PCB Performance Pitfalls Prior to Fabrication

Getting your newest PCB design back from fabrication is always exciting for an engineer. We are anxious to get the bareboard stuffed and powered up. Prior to powering up we inspect the components and probe the planes and critical connections of interest for shorts. So, what could go wrong? Well, the answer is it depends.

According to the Electronic Design’s 2016 Annual Salary & Career Report the top concerns that keep engineers up at night are not related to job security, outsourcing or their company’s financial health. The respondents top concerns were instead:

  1. Staying current with new and emerging technologies
  2. Looming deadlines
  3. Product reliability
  4. Product quality issues

Solving these problems and eliminating these top concerns is what the PADS product creation platform is all about. With  prefabrication analysis capabilities for DC drop, electronics cooling, DDRx signal integrity, SI and EMI rule checks and analog/mixed signal simulation you can stop losing sleep over the product and reliability issues that keep you up at night.

Only PADS can provide engineers and small teams with a product creation platform optimized for component selection, signal and power integrity, electronics cooling, form and fit, PCB layout, and manufacturing.
