Words of Advice: The OEM Systems Designer


Reading time ( words)

In a recent survey, we asked the following question: What advice would you give an OEM systems designer? Here are a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

  1. Solidify the design, and don’t push for too many changes unless you want to start from scratch.
  2. Simulate the power.
  3. Always have good margins on designs in comparison to the manufacturer’s capabilities.
  4. State very clearly all of the parts and components.
  5. Get a good IPC footprint design program.

What Is the Proper Role of App Notes?

07/15/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
There’s a disconnect in the design segment. Some designers say they follow app notes every time, but a growing number of designers approach app notes with a wary eye. Many of the leading voices in the design community have been advising designers not to rely on app notes without running the numbers first. We decided to ask PCB design instructors Rick Hartley and Dan Beeker to help us shine a light on this issue.
