The electronic systems design lifecycle

Reading time: 5 minutes
When faced with complexity of any form during the design of electronics interfaces, companies should consider integrating their entire systems-design flow with a seamless digital thread from concept through manufacture.
Design and verification of electronic systems can be a challenging process, from the 100-plus page specification to the detailed measurements on the prototype in the lab. It’s even worse if your workflow is siloed, disconnected, and inefficient. If collaboration across your team is not optimized, it’s likely having a negative impact on your schedule, cost, and design quality.

Teaming up on electronic systems design

Fortunately, there are measures an organization can take to alleviate these pain points. This paper walks through the six phases of the design lifecycle, using a high-speed DDR interface design as an example, and shows how you can improve process efficiency at every step.

Here are the six phases of the design lifecycle discussed in the white paper:

  • Design definition and early optimization

  • Interface constraint definition

  • Mechanical design and component placement

  • Interconnect routing

  • Sign-off verification

  • Design approval and release

Digital transformation of electronic systems design

The paper explains why you should consider a deeper integration of your entire systems design flow with a seamless digital thread from concept through manufacture. That may sound daunting, but we break down how easily it can be achieved with the right tools.
