Real Time with… AltiumLive 2020: Early Communication Key to Success of OSV Project



Rob Cooke, director of engineering at Calumet Electronics, discusses his role in the Open Source Ventilator (OSV) project that yielded ventilator PCBs in record time. He and project partners Dugan Karnazes of Velocity Research and Chris Denney of Worthington Assembly recounted this story during a panel at the virtual AltiumLive. Rob explains why early communication with Dugan while the PCB design process was still ongoing was vital to the success of the project, and he points out some of the takeaways for engineers working on similar time-sensitive projects in the future.

Real Time with… IPC APEX EXPO: Siemens’ Supply Chain Solutions

01/17/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson speaks with Oren Manor of Siemens Digital Industries Software about the company’s booth at IPC APEX EXPO, which will highlight a DSI platform meant to help designers find and use components in their designs during these tough supply chain challenges. If you can’t make it to IPC APEX EXPO, don’t worry. We’ll be bringing you interviews with the engineers, managers and technologists who are making a difference in our industry.

A High-Voltage PCB Design Primer

01/12/2022 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
Of all the different boards a designer can create, a high voltage PCB design can be complicated and requires strict attention to safety. If not laid out correctly these boards can be safety hazards or can fail to function on first power up, leaving a designer with wasted time and effort. In the best case, the board will function reliably for a long period of time thanks to correct layout practices. High-voltage PCB design can be as complex as any high-speed digital design. Boards for high-voltage systems can be space constrained and they carry important safety requirements. They also need to be highly reliable to ensure they will have a long life when run at high voltage and current.

High-Voltage PCB Design: Beating Separation Anxiety

01/11/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In recent surveys, PCB designers named high voltage among the issues causing problems in their designs. That led us to speak with Zuken USA’s Andy Buja, Wilmer Companioni, and Sanu Warrier about the challenges PCB designers and design engineers must confront when working with high-voltage designs. In this conversation, we discuss everything from the nuts and bolts of high-voltage design, such as the need to separate components of a high-voltage board, to the compliance problems companies like Tesla face when installing EV chargers around the world in countries with varying regulations.
