    PCB Design Revolution with Altium and SOLIDWORKS

    by Joel Desilets on January 31, 2017

    Multidisciplinary engineering teams are working together more today than ever before to develop products. This is because products now neePCB Design Revolution with Altium and SOLIDWORKSd to wirelessly connect and communicate with other devices, spurred by the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) within consumer electronics, manufacturing, healthcare, and automotive industries.

    If you use Altium Designer, you can now maintain your preferred workflow and realize the value of the SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector, engineered specifically to bridge the gap between your electrical design in Altium and your mechanical design in SOLIDWORKS.  

    There are several advantages that both Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and SOLIDWORKS designers will notice given the ease of moving models back and forth between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS.

      A New Way to Design Printed Circuit Boards

      by Angelle Erickson on January 17, 2017

      A-new-way-to-design-printed-circuit-boards1Understanding the lay of the land is extremely important when mechanical and electrical engineers are working on a design. Even when using the same CAD system, a back and forth disconnected process can leave room for error and create major setbacks.

      Many engineers experience the headache of having significant changes made in a design and feeling like they have to start from scratch. Even simple changes in a design can completely alter the routing of circuits and connectors in a PCB.

      If you’ve ever found yourself in this scenario, help is a click away. You can now use SOLIDWORKS PCB, powered by Altium. This intuitive software will help eliminate your frustrations associated with changes in circuit board design.

        SOLIDWORKS 2017 Packs in New Electrical Functionality

        by David Hofer on December 7, 2016

        “SOLIDWORKS Electrical – what’s all this 2017 stuff anyway?” is how Bob Pease, the famous integrated circuit design expert and technical author, may describe the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2017. He had a great way of explaining complex technical concepts and making them relatable to the general engineering population (us mere mortals).

        I’m no Bob Pease by any stretch of the imagination, but in putting together descriptions of the electrical features and presentation content for Fisher Unitech’s recent SOLIDWORKS 2017 product launch events, I took system design concepts and related them to a simple robot that our technical team used as a platform to demonstrate the top new enhancements and features in SOLIDWORKS 2017. I think Bob would have appreciated this straightforward, albeit entertaining, approach.

          SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2017 - Collaboration Made Simpler

          by Angelle Erickson on November 2, 2016

          Teamwork is tried and true regardless of the industry you work in. In product development, the relationship between electrical engineers and mechanical engineers is highly dependent on how well they can collaborate on a project. Having the right tools to work effectively and efficiently not only controls the quality of product designs but the production time frame as well.

          SOLIDWORKS Electrical is one such powerful tool for engineers. It not only displays a design to the very last detail but also makes communication extremely easier on both the mechanical and electrical ends of the project.
