3D PCB Design and Analysis: ECAD/MCAD and Where They Converge

April 1, 2020

The design of a board and its ‘home’ are heavily interdependent. They require careful consideration to ensure everything will be in working order when your product is ultimately brought to market. Many designs have been derailed by conflicts between ECAD and MCAD. Something as simple as an improperly placed / communicated mounting hole can send your project into a tailspin of re-designs.

Fortunately, modern PCB design tools and practices have been developed to ensure MCAD and ECAD can stay in sync. This e-book will discuss how your design's function can be defined alongside it's form to ensure overall product success.
