106 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I APRIL 2022 Which side of these competing aphorisms do you most resonant with: "The only thing constant is change" or "The more things change, the more they stay the same"? I can build a case behind both when looking at these through the lens of someone working in the printed circuit board industry. Current generations for PCB designs have increased in complexity. The product developer and assembly service provider, whether in-house or outsourced, must con- sider manufacturing efficiency, throughput, and process yield. Design and manufacture of PCBs for radio frequency (RF) technology is a unique animal. RF had been considered a niche, thought of only in terms of television broadcasts, commercial airline phones, and military radar systems. Now, light industrial and consumer applications are just the tip of the RF iceberg. TOP TEN PCB Talk: SAP—Changing the Way You Look at PCB Design Designers Notebook: Design for Test, Part 2 AltiumLive 2022: Left-Shifting Modeling and Simulation Harry Kennedy and Sarmad Khemmoro of Altair recently spoke with Andy Shaughnessy about their AltiumLive presentations, which are now available online. They discuss the need for modeling, simulation, and verifica- tion in PCB design, and why these actions should be performed as early in the design process as possible.
