A more productive approach to creating initial design architectures

A new approach to creating initial design architectures, increasing engineering productivity and reducing risk in product development is catching the attention of system architects, lead electrical engineers and system engineers. Find out more in Zuken’s Technical White Paper: “End-to-end hardware architecture design and validation”.

Leading manufacturers are finding that a multidisciplinary approach to managing product design is helping them gain a competitive edge. They are moving away from the traditional PCB-centric approach and bringing together previously separate areas of functional design, 2D and 3D space planning, and parametric elements. This white paper explores the benefits of bringing all these design domains together in a single tool that enables the translation of product requirements into an initial hardware architecture, ready for detailed design.

Upfront trade-off analysis is key: it is much easier to take early corrective action when it is not too expensive to fix.


  • Upfront requirements planning and trade-off analysis
  • Architectural validation
  • Engineering productivity
  • Reducing product risk
  • Multidisciplinary collaboration
  • Avoiding data re-entry

This white paper may benefit: system architects, lead electrical engineers, system engineers, and those in multidisciplinary teams or procurement roles.
