Lesson 12: Design Tools

From "Design for Test: Common Hardware Simplifies Test Systems"
by Jon Titus, Design News, December 1, 2003

"To better understand how standard, or common, hardware might apply to product designs, consider the flow of a design from concept to manufacturing. At the modeling or design step, engineers use PCs to produce schematic diagrams and to simulate the performance of devices in software. After they produce a prototype, they move from the PC domain to the physical domain in which they must perform physical measurements to characterize their device. This transition often presents a challenge because much of the design and simulation work isn't reused when engineers make actual measurements." (Source: Design News Magazine)
