Physical Design Reuse: How to Leverage Corporate IP to Increase Efficiency in PCB Design
December 12, 2013 === === Development time for your next PCB design project is always less than that of your last project. To stay competitive, companies constantly examine their design processes to find ways of decreasing product development time. This paper examines how PADS (personal automated design system) can reduce PCB design time through physical design reuse (PDR). It illustrates various uses for PDR, shows the positive effects of PDR on design time reduction, and highlights key reasons why PADS outperforms the competition.
