    CIMdata Highlights Automation Alley Event on Designing Smart Products for the IoT

    by Christa Prokos on August 4, 2017

    CIMdata Highlight Designing Smart Products for the Internet of Things 1 The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing how manufacturers design and develop products. From industrial and medical equipment to consumer goods, the products we use today are becoming increasingly connected and smart. While the IoT brings new revenue opportunities for manufacturers, there are also new product development challenges that can eat into profitability.

    Product development experts Peter Bilello, President of CIMdata, and David Hofer, Electrical Technical Specialist at Fisher Unitech recently spoke about how to address such challenges at an Automation Alley Industry 4.0 Tech Takeover event in Troy, Michigan on July 19th. In this blog, we provide an excerpt from CIMdata’s commentary summarizing the event and topics discussed.

        How to Insert a Printed Circuit Board in SOLIDWORKS

        by Ken Reinert on June 14, 2017

        As I was walking around town recently, I noticed a woman pushing a baby stroller that had USB ports. Her phone was plugged into one and a travel mug was plugged into another. It occurred to me that so many things today are designed with a printed circuit board, even something like a baby stroller.

        Designers today have to consider not only the aesthetics of products, but how to integrate all the electronics that go with it. Trying to document that integration can be challenging without the proper tools. When you select the “Insert Printed Circuit Board” icon in SOLIDWORKS Electrical, you are given four options. Keep reading to find out what each of those options mean.

          Meet our Experts: David Hofer - Electrical Technical Specialist and CID

          by Angelle Erickson on June 12, 2017

          popappengineers-2Meet David Hofer, our SOLIDWORKS Electrical Technical Specialist and Certified Interconnect Designer located out of our Troy, Michigan headquarters. David has been one of our Electrical and Printed Circuit Board (PCB) experts at Fisher Unitech since 2014, specializing in developing electronic designs and helping companies get the best value from their SOLIDWORKS PCB and Electrical software.

          David really knows his stuff. He’s been working with computer-aided engineering tools since the 1980s when he was programming and designing printed circuit board layouts. A high-speed imaging project arose in 2011 where he was introduced to SOLIDWORKS and the rest is history! Keep reading to learn what gets David so geeked out about SOLIDWORKS Electrical and PCB design software.

            How SOLIDWORKS Electrical and PCB Get Rid of the Guesswork

            by Angelle Erickson on March 22, 2017

            How do companies use SOLIDWORKS Electrical and SOLIDWORKS PCB to solve all of their designing needs? From the very beginning of the idea process, SOLIDWORKS can help electrical and mechanical engineers design every detail leading to the finished product.

            One of the most important aspects of working in SOLIDWORKS Electrical and SOLIDWORKS PCB is being able to work together in completing a project. Electrical and Mechanical engineers must be able to communicate thoroughly and smoothly every step of the way. Luckily, SOLIDWORKS makes that process easy by getting rid of the guesswork between electrical and mechanical design teams.

              PCB Design Revolution with Altium and SOLIDWORKS

              by Joel Desilets on January 31, 2017

              Multidisciplinary engineering teams are working together more today than ever before to develop products. This is because products now neePCB Design Revolution with Altium and SOLIDWORKSd to wirelessly connect and communicate with other devices, spurred by the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) within consumer electronics, manufacturing, healthcare, and automotive industries.

              If you use Altium Designer, you can now maintain your preferred workflow and realize the value of the SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector, engineered specifically to bridge the gap between your electrical design in Altium and your mechanical design in SOLIDWORKS.  

              There are several advantages that both Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and SOLIDWORKS designers will notice given the ease of moving models back and forth between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS.
