One of the Biggest Challenges in Generative Design

Everyone is abuzz about generative design. However, they are overlooking some significant cultural challenges in adopting it. In this video, Chad Jackson gives an overview of some of those barriers to adopting this exciting new technology.

Simulation and Verification for Board Development

The idea of applying simulation early in the development of board systems is a relatively new concept. In this post, we provide a quick overview of what is involved.

The Big Challenge With Simulation Driven Design

A Simulation Driven Design initiative carries a lot of promise. Yet, there are some kinks that companies need to address before they can reasonably realize value. We review some of the biggest ones in this post.

What is the State of Generative Design?

Is the technology ready? Maybe. Are people and processes ready? Well. We cover both issues in this post and video on the state of Generative Design.

What is Simulation-Driven Design?

What is Simulation-Driven Design (SDD)? We provide a concise overview of this type of engineering initiative in this post and video.

The INCOSE Symposium: Should You Attend?

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) holds an annual International Symposium event every year. Should you go? We give some guidance in this video.

Collaboration on Board Systems Design: Is It An Opportunity?

Is there an opportunity for more electrical-mechanical collaboration within board systems design? Let’s make sure we’re on the same page before we go any further. First off, what’s involved? We’re talking about taking the board layout in ECAD and communicating that to the 3D assembly in the mechanical application. Why is that needed, and what’s …

What is Generative Design?

There are a lot of different definitions for Generative Design today. In this post, we provide some clarity on three of those definitions and share the one that we use.

What is a Virtual Sensor?

Before we dive into virtual sensors, we need to cover some foundational concepts around the Digital Twin. With this technology, you have sensory data that you’re capturing from a product, and you’re feeding it into a simulation. The simulation will be running very fast, and will often be a systems simulation; a 1D simulation that …
