When it comes to our hardware engineering projects, we need to keep our design data well organized. In the software world, this is accomplished with the help of version control systems. Unfortunately, most of us don’t learn version control for hardware design. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Ben Jordan of Altium about how effective version control can help every step of the design process, enable team design, manage versions and configurations, and keep our project from spiraling out of control.
The ‘endgame’ for any board design is to generate and manage data from that design for building the physical object captured by that design – and with the utmost integrity. However, the need to ensure high-integrity data often walks hand-in-hand with layers of bureaucratic ‘red tape’, resulting in the designer being confined to design according to formalized processes, locking down design changes to ensure minimal impact to the integrity of the design data.
In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Ben Jordan of Altium about how to set up a robust design-for-re-use design methodology for your team that will flow nicely with your project, won’t take much effort to set up, and will bring BIG TIME long-term benefits of design re-use, configuration management, and manufacturing handoff.
In the first episode of our new Chalk TalkHD series, Amelia Dalton talks to Bob Potock from Altium as they add Wi-Fi to an FPGA-based embedded system.
This paper will enumerate the benefits of a platform-based system design approach. The original electronic design process built by linking tools together has remained largely unchanged for decades (i.e. tool-chains). A layered platform architecture unifies PCB, FPGA and embedded software development into one application. At the foundation is a unified data model that enables numerous data management benefits including versioning and ECO management. Companies switching to a platform based design process are doubling their productivity as compared to traditional tool-chains.
