Range of shielding cabinets expanded with EMC solution

Range of shielding cabinets expanded with EMC solution
Würth Elektronik has announced an extensive range of shielding cabinets in its program. The cabinets are made of thin, tin-plated sheet metal (certified to DIN EN 10202/10203) and represent an easy-to-implement EMC solution. The WE-SHC shielding cabinets keep electromagnetic radiation away from the circuit board and improve the noise immunity of the output and input stages of HF, oscillator and EMC-sensitive components in plastic housings.

Right first time with PCBA Visualizer

Right first time with PCBA Visualizer
Eurocircuits has now added the PCBA Visualizer to their online eC Smart Tools seamlessly linking PCB Manufacture to PCB Assembly and driving their philosophy of 'Right First Time for Manufacture'. It is without a doubt that the PCBA Visualizer brings unparcelled functionality and control to the customer. It allows them to visually check that the selected components physically fit their PCB layout before the manufacturing process starts, thus avoiding lengthy delays or costly remakes.

Ecosystem connects manufacturers to ensure design manufacturability

Ecosystem connects manufacturers to ensure design manufacturability
Cadence Design Systems has announced that it has launched a broad ecosystem with nine initial PCB manufacturing partners to enable customers to easily get the partners’ technology files they need to ensure PCB design manufacturability early in the design process. This reduces rework, shortens design cycles, and accelerates new product introduction.
