How New Software Updates Are Leading The Way For PCB Design


Over the years, PCB design software has had some major improvements with companies focusing on what designers need most. Some of these improvements include the addition of things like 3D design and simulations. The companies who are updating their software with these new features are leading the way for PCB design and improving the whole process. Find out more about this in the article below.

3D Design
One of the most interesting and beneficial features that have recently been added to some of the best PCB design software packages like Altium is 3D design features. These special features allow designers to view their design from many different angles and get a better idea of what they have created. On top of this, the circuit can be edited in the 3D view meaning that any changes can be seen in real time and a better overview of the circuit can be seen. Software packages with 3D views are quickly becoming some of the most popular on the market.

Improved User Interface
The user interface is one of the most important aspects of any type of software and sometimes it can cause problems when it comes to being clear to the user. With advanced PCB design software, users can benefit from an improved user interface meaning that they can easily get to grips with how the software package works and get their circuit designed in a much shorter space of time. It is expected that other packages will start to improve their user interface to make it simpler to transition between different tools and improve the experience for PCB designers.
Integration
Often in PCB design, multiple designers are working on the same project at the same time. Now, improvements in PCB design software mean that integration and collaboration is a lot easier than before. Designers and project contributors are in constant communication they don’t need to worry about any issues arising. The design is updated in real time and everything can go a lot smoother with these new types of PCB design features.

Parts
The final way that new software updates are leading the way for PCB design is through the parts search element that a few of the packages now offer. This search panel allows designers to find the parts that they need and calculate the exact cost of their project. This is a massive improvement on what previous packages offered and it is clear that any packages that don’t offer this service will soon be adding it to their offerings.

Summary
PCB design software has improved greatly over the years with many new features being added all of the time. Now, PCB designers don’t need to worry about finding difficult parts or miscommunication between designers as everything will be covered in the software packages. Make sure that you are using an updated package with all of these new features to create the best possible PCB design in the future.

Cloud Computing powering India’s priority of ‘Digital-first country’

By: Sunil Mahale, India MD and VP, Nutanix
Digital transformation has been recognized as being vital to the growth of our nation. This transformation has enjoyed the unanimous approval and contribution from all stake holders including enterprises, MSMEs, government bodies and citizens. But this level of adoption in a country with a population of over a billion people would need a robust technology base that is capable to collecting and distributing vital data seamlessly.
Digital India envisions creating high speed digital highways, that will impact commerce and create a digital footprint for every individual. Technologies based on mobility, analytics, Internet of things and most importantly, cloud technologies are the building blocks for the digital India missionThere is a growing need to manage huge volumes of data, and making them readily available to public through digital cloud services. Cloud has a pivotal role in enabling this change.
While Data centers have become crucial to th…
