    This article gives details of the application of CAE methods and tools to the structural design of a Winchester disk drive conducted by SDRC using the I-DEAS mechanical CAE system. The approach described is not limited to disk drives, but has been applied successfully to a variety of products and systems. One of the innovations in the project was the use of specially defined structural elements wh... View full abstract»

    The Initial Graphics Exchange Specification has become the most widely accepted means of transferring data between dissimilar CADCAM systems. This article reports the results obtained from a study of IGES Version 2.0 transfers between two commercial two-dimensional systems. A large number of test files were created and transferred, and by progressively modifying each file the boundaries of success... View full abstract»

    The evolution of CAE tools in electronics has made possible IC and PCB designs of increasing complexity, but these advances have been accompanied by greater difficulty at the manufacture and test stages. Under these circumstances design engineers need to combine and balance creativity and real-world constraints in an enhanced design-to-test process. View full abstract»
