  • Achieving higher levels of electronic integration through system-on-chip

    All aerospace vehicles have the common constraint of limited space for the electronic systems. The challenge has always been how to pack effective electronic systems into the space available. Higher levels of electronic integration can give a competitive advantage; for example, by providing extra channels in a communications satellite thereby increasing revenue to the operator. Today's deep sub-micron manufacturing processes for integrated electronics offer an opportunity for a step change for electronic functionality that can be packaged in a given space. This technology makes possible, for the first time, a true system-on-chip approach to electronic systems, which is already being exploited by the commercial sector in products such as the mobile telephone View full abstract»

  • Convergence of socio-economic and technology factors in creating opportunities for a new workforce model

    The “information age” has produced tools capable of supporting a variety of employment and business models that previously were infeasible. Convergence of socio-economic factors, workforce composition, accelerating product obsolescence and technological advances has created an unparalleled need and fertile opportunity to redefine the workforce model. These new technological capabilities alone are insufficient to reinvent the business models. Management must, through vision and solid commitment at all hierarchical levels, migrate values, reinvent precepts, coalesce processes, and redefine workforce models to remain financially viable in the emerging compressed timelines. The tools are at hand; economic realities make corporate change a financial requirement, and the changing values, goals, and social composition of the workforce apply pressure to create a new network centric workforce model. These converging pressures make rethinking the corporation viable and necessary. How rapidly these changes occur will be determined now by old-fashioned rates of human/corporate acceptance of change. Compression of the market timeline may force significant, perhaps unrecoverable fallout among those companies that are slow to take up this challenge View full abstract»

  • Improving the productivity of complex electronic systems design by utilizing applied design methodologies

    The design process of complex electronic systems consists of four traditional main stages, which are system design, electronic design, mechanical design, and design for manufacturing. Even today when many integrated computer aided design environments are in use for electronic systems design, we still seem to accept that the design process really has to follow this path of four individual design stages. It is common that we are dealing with data transfer problems between different types of CAE-applications. However, there is a possibility to avoid the disadvantages due to integration problems between the design stages if we decide to develop the design methodology itself instead of developing those independent software applications. One effective way to improve the productivity of complex electronic systems design is to tune the so-called systematic design approach by adding special aspects of electronic systems design into the questionnaires used for collecting the requirement lists for further mechanical design and DFM. Another important tool is the carefully made manufacturability analysis. The deep interaction of mechanical and electronic design, extended by manufacturability analysis can also lead to innovative solutions as presented previously by the author. In the article entitled “Manufacturability Analysis-A Useful Subset of Systems Engineering” we were able to show that the number of iteration cycles during the different design and manufacturing stages could be reduced by 50% compared to the conventional design methodology. In this paper, we illustrate additional tools to continue this promising development work View full abstract»
