PCB Libraries: Who are they and what do they do

All electronic product designs, from small handheld devices to complex space and military applications, start with components. Each one must be mounted securely and accurately on the printed circuit board (PCB) for the product to work properly. A single miscalculation can result in a company having to scrap a fabricated PCB and start a new …

Granular Changes and Onshape: Powering Critical Use Cases

Onshape, a computer-aided design (CAD) is built on a SAAS (software as a service) model. It allows granular changes to be tracked and merged into projects. This is significant for teams working remotely on the same project. The power of Onshape is its compute-intensive processing enhanced by its use of cloud computing and internet servers. …
