Product-Centric Design with Virtual Prototyping

Chalk Talk

Electronic Engineering JournalAs engineers, it's easy to get the feeling that your PCB is the center of the design universe. But, it's important to remember that we are designing products, not just boards, and a product-centric design methodology is essential to creating the competitive products that customers demand. Product level virtual prototyping validates that your detailed design approach can support the product requirements. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Bob Potock explore the concept of product-centric design with virtual prototyping and highlight how it differs from traditional, PCB-centric design. 

Take the CR-8000 Product Tour

CR-8000 is a product-centric design solution that provides the tools to optimize a design at both the product and PCB design level. Product-centric design processes provide architectural validation of the design against product requirements. Validating the product architecture against the product requirements significantly reduces delivery risk. Product-centric detailed design includes 2D/3D multi-board design and implementation, FPGA I/O optimization, chip/package/board co-design, and 3D MCAD integration all in one design process.
