Zuken USA Announces Industry’s First Model-Based Wire Harness Design Process
E3.GENESYS Connector bridges product model and detailed design

Zuken USA, Inc., and Vitech, a Zuken Company, announced the industry’s first model-based wire harness design process as part of its digital engineering initiative. The new process fills the design gap that previously required the manual translation of the product model into schematics and spreadsheets to begin implementation. This manual effort can take weeks and breaks any direct connection between the model and the development process, making the ROI of a model-based design process almost impossible to measure. Zuken’s new E3.GENESYS Connector directly connects the product model to the wire harness design process, saving significant time and maximizing ROI.

Building the Video Drone Product Model (Part 1)
This is the first in a webinar series covering Digital Engineering Basics. In this webinar, we will use systems engineering best practices to build a video drone product model based on product marketing requirements. Using Vitech’s GENESYS product the system context will be defined that includes the drone, remote control, a phone App, a GPS satellite and the operating environment. The marketing requirements are then decomposed into requirements, behaviors, parameters and ultimately an architecture. Different aspects of the model will be explored using SysML diagrams including the Constraint Definitions which are used in part 2 of the webinar series for trade studies.

Perform a Video Drone Model Trade Study (Part 2)
Wednesday, May 5th, 2021 @ 2:00 ET
This webinar will demonstrate systems engineering best practices in verifying product requirements using a MBSE model. Parameters and Constraint definitions will be used to build equations to analyze various aspects of the model that lead to a business value trade-off. A critical product requirement is the operational time. Various aspects of the design will be analyzed to determine the system’s ability to meet that requirement. The ability to meet that requirement along with weight, cost, and video performance will be rolled up into business value analysis. The analysis will be run through Model Center and integrate various analysis tools.

CR-8000 Design Force “Rules by Area” for those Dense Areas of the PCB
During the design cycle of a PCB, there may be times when the designer needs to loosen the rules to route in a dense area in their design. The way to do this is to create a “Rule Area” that will call for different design rules in the enclosed area. Helping Designer achieve 100 percent routing in a dense area of the PCB...

EMC for PCB Design: Anything but Black Magic
By: Ralf Bruening
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems are often responsible for re-design cycles during the PCB design process. Due to ever shorter innovation cycles of electronic products like cell phones, or IoT applications such as fitness trackers or smartwatches, it is essential to avoid these time-consuming re-design cycles under all circumstances. In this post, I’ll walk you through the essentials of EMC for PCB Design. Once you understand the basics, you’ll see there’s nothing mystical about it.
