A couple of weeks ago, I published an article that focused on the need for collaboration between electrical and mechanical engineers called It Takes Two: Modern Circuit Board Design. In it, I wrote that the development of circuit boards really does require some tight work back and forth between these two types of engineers because there are constraints on both sides that need to be satisfied.
Well, circuit board design isn’t the only aspect of smart, connected products that require electrical and mechanical engineers to work in concert. Routed electrical systems, composed of wires, cables, and harnesses is another aspect. That’s what we’ll be diving into with this post.
