This article’s argument for mechanical engineering involvement in PCB design is specific to the layout. The schematics and circuit design such as power, analog, and digital belong to the electrical engineering domain and this area requires classroom and lab experience which one would expect from a degreed electrical program. It is not to say that a mechanical engineer cannot do circuit design. More so, we envision a future in which academia offers degrees in mechatronic design.

One would think that the title of this article should be a no-brainer. The fact of the matter is that the ownership of this vital aspect of electronic design is not only cloudy, but it will become murkier in the next 10 years. This murkiness is also an opportunity for mechanical engineers who aren’t afraid to expand their horizons. In order to understand the current climate, we have to look at the division of labor that took place in electronic design about 40 years ago.

Thomas Edison has over one thousand patents to his name (individual or joint), 1,093 to be exact. Most notably for the light bulb, the phonograph, and an initial motion picture concept. He was also very famous in his early 30s and throughout his 84 years. He also had innovations in manufacturing and was a savvy businessman as well.

Product performance and capabilities are evolving exponentially, design and technologies are becoming more challenging, and market/business pressure are constantly mounting. These factors are driving the need for cohesive, adaptive design capabilities for today’s products that can only be produced effectively through purpose-built mechatronics software. With the dawn of the Mechatronics product design, the day of siloed engineering design tools has gone the way of the drafting board. Having

I’m sure I’m not the first to wonder what awesome products the great inventors of the world would have been able to create if they were alive and had access to the tools we use today. Back in 2014, I wrote an article asking this question of Leonardo daVinci: What if Leonardo da Vinci had SOLIDWORKS? The blog received a lot of interest, and it seems I was not alone, as many responded and shared the article. However, taking this thought to the next level: I was curious if these great innovators

If you are an electrical engineer, or anyone who designs electro-mechanical products then this is the SOLIDWORKS event for you. We will spend 40 minutes (or less) discussing “What’s New” in SOLIDWORKS for electrical engineers. At SOLIDWORKS, we are very excited about this launch, as it will be focusing on electro-mechanical design. So many SOLIDWORKS users are adding smart devices into their product lines, or building new smart products all together, as customers are demanding smart products

Kaum ein Produkt dieser Welt ist heutzutage noch rein mechanischer Natur. Die Elektrotechnik und Elektronik haben selbst in die simpelsten Produkte in unserem Umfeld Einzug gehalten, was sich auch auf die mechanischen Konstruktionsabteilungen auswirkt. Mechatronik nahtlos umgesetzt SOLIDWORKS Electrical und PCB Es gibt eine digitale Seite unseres Produktes, welches in einem System losgelöst von SOLIDWORKS entsteht. Das bringt typische Probleme mit sich, welche uns aus der Sicht des „Mechanikers“

“Electronics” is a very generic word today. It wasn’t when I was growing up, but I did grow up in somewhat of an electronics revolution, as PCs and electronic toys made their exciting debut when I was a kid. I was fascinated by how adding electronics to everyday toys brought them to life in a way I had never imagined possible. Today, that evolution continues.
