When Should Designers Start Working With Their Board House?
Designing for Multiple PCBs in the Same Project Majority of our PCB designs sit as a single PCB under our Altium Designer projects (i.e. .PrjPcb file). Now and then, we design using variants with different stuffing options. It seldom happens that we have a single project that requires multiple PCBs with various stuffing options, but when it happens, a lot of us tend to get stuck. All too many times, I have seen designers fork (i.e., copy and paste) a project and then add slight variations to Read Article
Designing PCBs for Interconnected Multi-Board Systems in Altium Designer If you open up some of your favorite electronics, you’ll find they are multi-circuit boards systems or multiple PCBs connected together with cables and ribbons. In the past, circuit design software has treated each board in the system individually without considering important circuit board design issues like power distribution and grounding, high-speed routing, mechanical assembly, and thermal demands. Design software has caught up to the Read Article
