Electromechanical design isn’t getting any easier. Increasingly complex circuit board designs and their related components need to integrate flawlessly with information from the mechanical domain to get the product to market on time and in-budget. To make that happen, it’s critical that ECAD and MCAD engineers collaborate throughout the entire product design cycle, regardless of the design tools they use.

The latest leading-edge product design tools enable an MCAD-ECAD collaboration environment that enables Electronic and Mechanical design teams to work together throughout the entire design process. This webinar will describe how the consistent and continuous communication channel keeps design teams synchronized as they work. By keeping MCAD and ECAD engineers working within their own systems’ comfort zone, tightly integrated CAD tools ensure that designs are up-to-date and accurate and that time-consuming rework and re-spins are avoided, thereby improving project profitability. We’ll help you identify ways to apply concurrent design to product development to bring more complex, sustainable products to market faster.

There is more to a direct sampling RF front end than simply an antenna connected to a data converter, but what happens between these two components can feel like magic. How do we make a black box that takes information from the antenna, selects information of interest, and conditions the signal so it can be digitized by a data converter? Join us for this webinar as we walk through the building blocks of a direct sampling RF front end and discuss avoiding common pitfalls and misconceptions that can occur when designing and selecting components for the RF front end.
