July 2013 Edition of PCB Design Magazine

Sometimes it feels as if we’re floating in a sea of “Design For” acronyms: DFM, DFA, DFT, DFE, DFX…the list goes on. But in the end, isn’t it all about profit? In the July issue of The PCB Design Magazine, our contributors and columnists discuss DFP and the best practices for creating profit in your designs while keeping costs down. Steve Hageman of AnalogHome explains how virtual prototyping can help you design PCBs more profitably. Tom Hausherr of PCB Libraries shows how increasing productivity leads to greater profits. Barry Olney of In-Circuit Design breaks down the various levels where costs can be coaxed out of a design. Amit Bahl of Sierra Circuits details how solid DFP techniques can create higher yields in HDI board design. And Lawrence Romine of Altium explains how designers benefit from being able to track their ever-changing supply chains in real time.

As always, catch up on the latest columns from Mark Thompson, Jack Olson, and much more.

All this, industry news highlights, and upcoming events can be found in this month’s issue of The PCB Design Magazine…
