IoT products change quickly, such as wearables, mobile devices, etc. After the new generation of products is launched, there are next-generation products waiting to be designed. If the design engineers conduct circuit layouts, the design time will be too long. Time to market.
In the past, when designers were designing hybrid signal circuit boards (PCBs), they usually took out a piece of paper or planned it on a computer, and then found out the components on the PCB. The manufacturer was asked to make prototypes and then proceed. Tests, but after testing, there may be situations where some components are not suitable for replacement, so the power layout design process takes several weeks or even several months.
In this regard, John Teegen, Vice President of Dialog Semiconductor and General Manager of the Configurable Mixed Signal Business Unit, believes that in the future, the PCB design method should use a software platform that can pull the module concept to conduct PCB design. This way, no matter how the configuration is modified, Correcting and so on, the speed can be improved; and after testing, if it is found that some hardware components need to be modified, only new scheduling changes can be made in the software platform.
In this way, from the beginning of the design of the PCB to the completion of the final prototype, using the concept of stacking blocks, it is expected to be completed in just a few days from the past few weeks, in order to significantly accelerate the market for Internet of Things products. Time schedule. In addition, adopting such a pattern design not only accelerates the time-to-market, but also enhances the degree of component integration, which in turn allows designers to simplify circuit design and reduce design costs.
As the demand for the Internet of Things (IoT) market is increasing, the flexibility of PCB design is improved, and the circuit configuration can be simplified. In this way, product productivity can be improved to shorten the time to market, and “fast” is the same for IoT products. One important thing.
