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 people talk about outsourcing any element of any business, people often think of the negative associated connotations, lack of control, job losses, a reduction in quality. etc.etc
But the benefits of outsourcing are rarely as widely heralded. We thought we’d have a look at the top three reason people and businesses benefit from outsourcing.
CADSTAR customers with a valid maintenance contract can now requestCADSTAR License Authorisations by completing and submitting the form within the Zuken Global Support website.
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 […]
We all approach different tasks in different ways and as PCB designers we all have very different ways of working, even though the task at hand effectively requires the same outcome. Designers rely on a variety of tools to help streamline and complete designs as efficiently as possible, some of which are more regularly used than […]
