State of the art design and validation

Man testing a PCB

Electronics companies are on the leading edge of delivering reliable and innovative products in volatile, highly competitive markets—driven by the demand for low-cost products with high-performing properties. But the rate of change is outpacing traditional design capabilities, where disconnected tools and manual processes have long dominated. As a result, companies are looking for state-of-the-art design solutions with more integrated tools and processes because the ability to design products faster while balancing cost, quality and sustainability is critical for success.

The growing complexity of electro-mechanical systems design necessitates more integrated electronic and mechanical environments with seamless verification and validation capabilities to optimize designs for performance and manufacturability. Validation checking is essential early in the design phase to increase quality and sustainability and reduce errors for a more efficient and speedier design flow.

A multi-disciplinary design environment offers the advantages of concurrent design for a more holistic and efficient approach to electronics systems design and validation. In addition, integrated electronic systems design and validation tools include critical digital prototype verification capabilities to reduce the need for physical prototypes and minimize waste while providing powerful knowledge and data reuse capabilities. Shifting left to validate your designs against product requirements upfront in the design cycle enables you to discover design issues much earlier to eliminate rework.

With integrated tools and processes, concurrent design is possible. With this method of designing and developing products, the mechanical, electronic, electrical and software domains run in parallel rather than serially. A multi-domain product development strategy reduces time-to-market, improves productivity, and lowers costs.

Leveraging state-of-the-art tools

The best electronic systems design and validation tools increase productivity and empower teams to design better products faster. In addition to boosting design productivity, leading solutions incorporate all design data into a single data management platform, ensuring data integrity and visibility for all stakeholders to collaborate efficiently. 

Designs evolve much quicker, innovation increases, and mistakes turn into creativity. Removing the barriers to innovation fosters collaboration and improves transparency across disciplines. With increased transparency, design teams see issues sooner and fail early to succeed faster. By finding design flaws earlier, there are more opportunities to learn.

The benefits of concurrent design capabilities

The complexity of electro-mechanical systems design makes integration between the electronic and mechanical environments critical. It reduces waste, effectively saving time and cost. When the engineering teams use integrated design tools, they benefit from cross-functional simulation capabilities to perform validation and verification to reduce the reliance on physical prototypes. Siemens electronics systems design solutions also include powerful knowledge and data reuse tools that increase visibility and trust. These solutions enable manufacturing and test analysis (DFX) and new product introduction (NPI) planning for accelerated manufacturing.

Siemens technologies enable the co-design of an electronics system, optimization of design data, and collaboration across specialized and distributed engineering teams. This results in reduced design cycles and improved product quality:

  • Scale seamlessly from single printed circuit board (PCB) to systems design, from individual to enterprise
  • Integrate and optimize entire digital processes from spec to manufacturing
  • Achieve higher productivity and efficiency regardless of product complexity
  • Leverage digital prototypes for higher performance and manufacturability
