Mechanical Design Is Changing in Smart, Connected Products Era

Many companies are making the transition from developing mechanical oriented products to smart, connected ones. Making that change, of course, requires many changes. But what does it mean for mechanical design? We explore that topic in this post.

Building the Digital Thread for Harness Design

What is a Digital Thread when it comes to harness design? This post details that definition and why it is so important to the development of smart, connected products.

It Takes Two: Modern Circuit Board Design

This post explores the collaboration needed between mechanical and electrical engineers to incorporate electronics into modern smart, connected products.

Electromagnetic Simulation for Electrical Systems: Right the First Time

This post looks at a common problem in the development of smart connected products, Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), and how simulation can help you avoid it.

What’s Your IoT Strategy?

This article looks at two approaches that companies can take as their first steps with an IoT initiative: exploring in R&D or testing a ‘hypothesis.’

Collaborative 1D Modeling for Software and Systems

This post looks at 1D models for embedded software as well as systems engineering, specifically looking at the opportunity for collaborative efforts.
