Multi-Cavity Board Level Shielding: When Maximizing PCB Real Estate and Reducing Weight is Critical

March 27, 2015 As electronic devices continue to get smaller and printed circuit board complexity increases due to higher operating frequencies, the requirements for board level shielding solutions become more acute. As well, with the rise in wireless products, the need for circuit board isolation has grown significantly due to the challenging operation of wireless protocols like Bluetooth, LTE, CDMA, GPS, Zigbee, WiFi, and many others. Rather than having multiple shields on a PCB, which require their own s...

Connect The Data: Benefits of Networked Training and Simulation

March 23, 2015 Transformation is underway in the way we live and work, driven by the ability to connect devices for improved communication and interoperability—with little or no human intervention. It’s a concept known as the Internet of Things (IoT). In the training and simulation industry, however, most simulators still operate in a standalone mode. There are concerns about security and compliance with Information Assurance (IA) standards. Best practices now exist that address these concerns, and once tra...

Avoiding Redesign: The Importance of Upfront Planning

February 5, 2015 When starting a new project, the people responsible for delivering that new product into the boardroom are under pressure. There are delivery dates, quality expectations, and the need to bring it in within budget. Because of these outside stresses, a metal component being developed to prove a concept is often not ready for a high-speed stamping press. If the end goal is not addressed early, a redesign is looming in the future. What constitutes the development of a precision metal part? What s...
