Error checking to avoid disaster in PCB design

1 min read

PCB Live exhibitor Altium has produced a series of White Papers covering many subjects of significant importance to PCB design and manufacturing professionals.

A particularly interesting one is entitled ‘Error checking to avoid disaster’. With PCB design becoming increasingly complex (and now containing even more rules with regards to electrical requirements and configurations) the PCB Editor in Altium Designer has some ways to verify that designers are following these requirements. However, should one step outside of them, there is a risk of creating an error. This paper from Altium highlights key tools that will assist designers in keeping track of any potential violations in real time, and help identify where they may have occurred.

Detailed discussion about this and many other aspects of PCB design and manufacture made easier by Altium can be had on the company’s stand at the forthcoming PCB Live event on March 12th. PCB Live is the UK’s only dedicated event focusing on PCB design, test and manufacture.

This one-day opportunity provides senior engineers with a platform to meet and talk with some of the most experienced PCB-related technologists and application experts in the country. Entry to PCB Live is free of charge by pre-registration. The event takes place at the acclaimed British Motor Museum on 12th March. The venue is located at Gaydon, adjacent to the Aston Martin and JLR plants south of Warwick and just one minute from the M40. There is abundant free parking, and for visitors arriving before 1030, a free bacon roll and brew too. Tea and coffee is provided free of charge all day at the event, and pre-registered exhibition visitors can also visit the superb Museum, with almost 300 fascinating cars on show, free of charge too (standard adult entry fee otherwise is £14.50).
