Product-centric 3D PCB Design Platform

Building a competitive product today is much more difficult than a few years ago. Existing PCB-centric design processes are limited to a single PCB and do not provide the necessary tools for today’s competitive product development environment. PCB-centric design processes are falling behind.

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.

Explore a Modern PCB Panelization Process

Designing the panel is as important as the layout of the PCB itself. When designing a PCB, often the panelization is left up to the manufacturer. Why? They are trying to optimize material usage and get as many boards on a panel and still conform to high yields and quality. In cases where larger corporations design the panel design in-house, their focus is to have better control over the entire assembly process.

Releasing Your Design to PLM is more Complicated than You Thought

There is one thing that all design engineers will agree on. Creating and gathering all the required data for a release to the PLM system is error-prone and can be a “messy”. We all understand the value of releasing our design data to the corporate PLM system, but a best practice design process dictates multiple release profiles with different purposes and different data requirements.
