Leveraging 3D Layout to Optimize PCB System Designs
White Paper Overview
Some engineers believe that the 2D design is no longer sufficient for today’s complicated PCB layouts. Flex and rigid-flex designs, and an increasing need for collaboration with MCAD, require advanced 3D layout design capabilities to address today’s challenges fully.
To ensure no physical violations occur when the PCB is placed within the enclosure or system, especially when designing with flex, the electrical and mechanical design must take component and mechanical clearances into account. There is no better way to do that than with an advanced 3D layout.
This white paper explains six ways to maximize the benefits of 3D technology to optimize PCB system designs and visualize PCB designs as if they were already manufactured.
