Top 10 rules for Efficient and Effective PCB Design Flow The importance of prototyping and product development in the PCB design flow is huge. In order for the PCB to function correctly and by manufactured effectively it requires the following: Rule #1: Get the right grid. Find a grid spacing that suits as many of […]
Portable, wearable and adaptable technologies are now the norm. As a result, the PCB’s required need to be smaller yet still capable to
performing ever-more-complex functionality with smaller components.

When ISPAS were developing their revolutionary new sea-surface oil detection system they chose to partner with Quadra to provide their PCB design needs. But in doing so, they were able to dramatically reduce product delivery timescales, enabling them to bring their product to market earlier than expected. Detecting and then quickly acting upon oil spillages […]
It’s that time of year again. Yearly performance appraisals, staff planning and looking to the year ahead. But are you and your team ready for the new year? Do you have the in-house skills available? Are your team ready to take on the challenges that lie ahead in 2019? Or is it time to look at investing […]
PCB designers working with advanced and complex designs are constantly pushing the boundaries to satisfy the signal integrity of routed differential pairs and busses. Those who work with flexible and flex-rigid PCB designs are perhaps the most demanding of all. A while ago, the introduction of the curved corner style for routing trunks in CADSTAR […]
We often hear about reverse engineering within mechanical engineering, but how is reverse engineering deployed in electronics and why? Firstly, what is Reverse Engineering? When we hear the phrase ‘reverse engineering’ being applied in an electronic product environment, the default assumption is that the intention is to replicate a product. It’s commonplace for companies to […]
This month, Quadra have continued to strengthen their team of PCB design professionals and the expertise of Gary Mulqueen, an experienced Altium PCB designer, will help extend design capabilities within the company. CADSTAR and PCB Design Sales Manager, Michael Wray catches up with Gary and finds out more about his design experience and hear about […]
The mind boggles when you look around at the range of electronic equipment we use on a daily basis. This technology is not just relied upon but is often taken for granted and often abused as a result. Case in point – teenagers; recklessly discarding their smartphones and still assuming them to work. I will, […]
