Day In the Life of A PCB Design Engineer:

Managing your Libraries and Design Data

With the technology industry continuing to explode and companies race to compete in the market, component shortages have hit big time in India leading to increased part prices and decreased part supplied. Due to this, it is crucial for designers to be able to manage their data accurately and know which components are available for their designs.

Join the Experts at EMA and Sunstream to see how you can turn libraries and data management from a necessary evil to a competitive advantage with OrCAD & Allegro.

Common Data Management Challenges You Will Learn How to Overcome:

  • How to identify and find suitable substitutes for obsolete or low availability parts early in the design process
  • How to check the lifecycle of a part utilizing Silicone Expert then add that information to your database.
  • How to create a variant BOM
  • How to manage your design libraries and files ensuring everyone is working from the same version
  • How to automate your release to manufacturing process ensuring your manufacturing package is complete, accurate, and up to date every time
  • How to work collaboratively regardless of location across the entire PCB design process
  • How to accomplish all this without leaving your workstation
