The Engineer's Desktop, Room for Improvement?



With electronic product design increasing functionality whilst decreasing form factors, electronic engineers experience pressure to reduce development time, increase productivity, optimise costs without compromising design quality. It is clear that to survive in these competitive times a traditional “PCB front end” development processes no longer supports today’s development requirements...

In recent years an engineering desktop would consist of a desk packed with component catalogs, research material, reports, specifications and lab equipments to analyze the multitude of physical prototypes and circuitries.

The engineer was expected to synthesize mountains of information and design the product on time and on budget relying on their education and experience. Today there is more data and more constraints to consider. The complexity is significant and because of the pressure of time compromises force trade-offs and potentially sub-optimal designs.

The modern engineering desktop must eliminate inefficiencies and help engineers collaborate throughout the design process sharing IP, gaining access to embedded expertise – in real time without having to leave their desks. It should also provide virtual prototyping to support the validation of multiple “what if?” scenarios through simulation to arrive at the optimal solution which encourages innovative and competitive designs which can be delivered on time.
