Best techniques for leveraging reusable circuit blocks
Key library and design elements associated with reusable circuit blocks
Proper support for these critical elements is essential to a robust environment that ensures design teams have the ability to accelerate the product development process.
Best practices and benefits for using reusable circuit blocks
Design teams can maximize the time-to-market benefits of reusable circuit blocks by adhering to best practices such as:
Ensuring that all team members are properly trained in the reusable circuit blocks process from both the library and design perspective
Assigning meaningful categories and properties to the reusable blocks to ensure they can be located and properly utilized by potential consumers
Keeping in mind that a library of certified reusable circuit blocks requires continual investment to ensure high quality and reliability. For example, utilizing data from the field can continually improve the reliability of high-use circuit blocks
Trying to avoid the ‘not-invented-here’ syndrome. Recognize that everyone has their own design style; as such, resist the urge to recreate, change, or simply refuse to use the certified blocks lest the investment in the circuit block library quickly be lost.
