Five Steps for Securing Customer Data in IoT
If your company is harnessing the power of IoT and machine learning as a way to improve efficiency and customer service, you have probably worried about the inherent safety risks and what they could
What’s the difference between AI and Robotics?
How does the field of artificial intelligence differ from robotics? They’re often used interchangeably, so the differences can be difficult to understand.
PCB Fabrication Techniques
As a PCB designer, it can be tempting to leave the details of the manufacturing process up to the fabrication house. However a little understanding of the manufacturing process upfront can help...
Everything you need to know about drilling PCB mounting holes
Mounting holes seem simple enough—they let you mount your PCB to an enclosure or a surface. Simply pick a screw size that makes sense for the size of your board and the surface you wish to mount...
Barcodes In Manufacturing
Barcode technologies also add value to manufacturing processes. The ability to tie large amounts of data to an object via a small code or chip allows for greater accuracy in the manufacturing process.
Backdrilling in PCB Manufacturing
Plated through holes (PTH) are great. They electrically connect two or more layers together, and serve as convenient connecting points for traces and components throughout a multilayer PCB.
What Is Bare Board Testing?
There’s a point in manufacturing where you’ve got a decision to make. Do you start assembling your bare PCB or electrically test its connectivity for opens and shorts?
Notes on Spacing
While our CAD system draws the lines and shapes as the positive elements, it is the space between that ultimately defines the circuit.

Reduce Time-to-Market for Your System-level Designs Using PSpice Systems Option
When you move from prototyping to real production, you need to fine tune again because ideal parts cannot emulate the realities of delays and non-linearities. This costs money and eats into../
Notes On Schematic Capture
There once was a time when it was common for the PCB Designer to also capture the schematics. I’m not trying to say that the EE’s came along and broke everything.
