How to Design Better Products, Faster with Electronics Design Innovation

Most of the companies that currently design electronic systems and products use a serial approach with some collaboration between their electronics, mechanical and software disciplines. A multi-domain development strategy with tools that support mechanical, electronic, electrical and software is, without a doubt, a smarter way. The question is, how?

This webinar focuses on helping companies identify ways to quickly bring more complex products to market with a concept that provides the foundation for their design process and decision-making.

It begins by introducing a comprehensive MBSE approach that uses best-in-class design solutions, with the ability to provide seamless integration of all electronic, mechanical simulation and software environments.

The result is a systems engineering approach that moves from "document-centric" to "model-centric" processes. In this way, design teams would develop models of the system instead of documents, enabling the most accurate and comprehensive digital twin.

While this is optimal, we understand that many businesses need the flexibility to determine how best to introduce transformative technologies and innovative practices to suit them best.

Advanced design and simulation tools that include powerful knowledge and data reuse enable shift-left practices to reduce prototypes and waste.

Concurrent electronics, PCB, and mechanical design environments combine design and verification, eliminating redundancy and rework across design disciplines. It also lowers design iterations through product validation in the virtual domain instead of waiting for physical prototypes. And with sophisticated electronics in almost every design, it's essential to integrate electrical, mechanical simulation, and software environments.

Key Takeaways

  • Free up design resources by reducing the burden of duplicate data entry and redundancy
  • Improve quality and reduce costs with simplified validation and verification processes that improve design integrity and sustainability
  • Reduce design cycle time and speed time-to-market
  • Minimize reliance on physical prototypes with digital twins
  • Realize a higher probability of first-pass success with a shift-left approach that identifies design flaws much earlier in the design cycle
