SEPTEMBER 2020 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 67 Also, take the time to take some notes. I'm not talking about writing a novel here; just keep up with some simple entries in the project log. This makes it much easier for people to pick up where you left off, or for you to demon- strate why or why not certain tasks have or have not been completed. 4. Relax a Little When the heat is on us, it is easy to get really wrapped up in our work. I'm sure that all of us have found ourselves working through the night on more than one occasion to get an important project out the door. The con- cern, though, is that having such a tight hold on what we are doing may make it difficult to let go when we need to. Sometimes, board designs change in mid-stream or even get can- celed, and that can be really tough to deal with if we are hanging on too tight. What's worse is to find out that we've made a mistake some- where along the way and now we have to go back and correct it. Relax. We're all human, and mistakes happen, so let it go. The impor- tant thing is to learn from any errors we have created so that we don't make those same ones again. Take a deep breath and forgive yourself, and then get back into the game again. Conclusion There is one thing in life for certain: when an object gets too hot, it will change. In PCB design, we know this better than most, which is why we design our boards to manage an excess of heat. Objects that overheat tend to get crispy, inflexible or even melt away, which is the last thing we should allow to happen to us as PCB designers. The world of electronics design is constantly changing, and we must remain flexible to stay ahead of the rapidly changing curve and avoid the pressure that could lead to a melt-down. What do you think? Has this helped to turn the thermostat down in the old design room yet? Remember, you already know how to manage the heat in your design to pro- tect it; now, take the time to do the same for yourself. Until next time everyone, keep on designing.

The battery technology, highly efficient electric drive system and a low drag coefficient of 0.27, delivers a range of 610 km (NEDC). The HiPhi X will accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.9s. The advanced vehicle has been developed with dual-redundant systems which is a key enabler for its Level 3 autonomous driving capabil- ity. The HiPhi X is equipped with the worlds-first NT Door system, Pro- grammable Matrix Lighting (PML), Intelligent Signal Display (ISD), a the- atre-style co-pilot screen and other leading technologies to bring users a truly new experience. (Source: PR Newswire) HiPhi, Human Horizons' premium, smart, all-electric vehicle brand, is excited to announce the application of its world-first NT Door system on the HiPhi X. The innovative new entry to the premium automotive segment will debut at the 2020 Beijing Auto Show. HiPhi X, the first model of the HiPhi brand, is positioned as a self-learn- ing, supercar-inspired SUV, adopt- ing the world's first Human Oriented Architecture (HOA) enabling a secure, developer-open software platform. HOA comprises of 6 "super brain" domain controllers, connected by 1G Ethernet, over 500 sensors, and a 5G-V2X technology network. HiPhi X comes with 2 battery HiPhi X Launches With Electronically Controlled NT Door System
