Design007 Survey: Show Us Your Workspaces!


Reading time ( words)

Since the COVID-19 lockdown began, more and more PCB designers and design engineers have moved into home offices. Some designers adapted to telecommuting right away, and have no plans to ever work in a company location again, but others say they can't wait to get back into the company office when the smoke clears. What's your opinion on working remotely?

In this survey, we ask our designer and design engineer readers to share their thoughts on working from a home office: the dogs, the crying kids, everything. Best of all, we want to see photos of your workspaces! Take a photo of your office, whether it's a dedicated office, a dining room table, or even your company office, and upload it into the survey. Just remember: If you upload a photo, it may appear in Design007 Magazine or on the Design007 website.

Thanks for taking the time to fill out this survey. Surveys like this help keep on track covering the issues that matter to you most. To take this survey, click here.

A New Sourcing Paradigm

09/20/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We’ve seen many changes over the past few years, and nowhere are they more evident than in the world of sourcing components. Sourcing has become one of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers and design engineers today. Gone are the days of procuring parts from a single source, and communication between stakeholders and distributors is critical. But as we learned in a conversation with I-Connect007 columnist Kelly Dack, PCB designers can use certain layout strategies to plan for the unexpected, such as leaving extra real estate so that smaller components can be replaced by larger, readily available parts if the originals become “unobtainium.”

Happy’s Design Tips for Material Conservation

08/25/2022 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
For this issue, Happy Holden provided a range of options for designers who are seeking to conserve materials in their next design. He also offered an example of the relative cost index, or RCI, that he developed at HP exclusively for PCB design. With this RCI, designers can figure out the relative cost of a new design compared to an eight-layer through-hole board. We hope you can use this handy formula on your next design job.
