Reading time ( words)
How much time do you spend verifying your schematics manually? Do you find that logical issues still find their way into your final product? How much do these errors cost?
Studies show that 78% of all projects experience at least two re-spins in their design process, and many of these problems are due to logical issues.
This video by Mentor, a Siemens business, introduces a new way to validate designs during product development, significantly reducing the likelihood of costly errors.

I recently interviewed Les Beller, a long-time PCB designer who is now a manufacturing engineer for DISH Technology. We discussed his company’s business shift towards 5G and streaming, and the stresses that puts on a design team. He also explains the greatest challenges that he’s facing with HDI and higher frequencies, and the added importance for designers to understand the manufacturing process and DFM tools.
