Advice to OEM System Designers


Reading time ( words)

In a recent I-Connect007 survey, we asked the following question: "What advice would you give an OEM system designer?" Here are just a few of replies, slightly edited for clarity.

Dwain Strang, ZIN Technologies: "If you are going to call yourself a ‘System Designer’, have some idea of how electronics, electrical, mechanical, fluid systems, the enclosures and the environment interact! Figure out if everything will go together or ever connect after having approved parts."

Mihai Burgheaua, Continental Automotive Romania: "Review your works and check what is necessary. One size fits all is not possible."

Chand Basha M, Anora Semiconductor Labs: "Always have good margin on designs in comparison to manufacturer capabilities; and run a thorough DFM check through at least two resources."
