Virtual Assistant for Embedded Engineers

Online collaboration on electrical designs is changing the market. Centralization and collaborative editing are already replacing email and file-based work flows.

Let’s say you are designing an embedded system. You reach a point where you need a PCB layout footprint or a schematic symbol to finish a component. What do you do? If you are with a big company, you probably call the library team and request them to send you the symbols.

However, if you are on your own or working for a small company, you have no choice but to stop working on the embedded system and start developing the footprints or symbols. Isn’t it a waste of time?

Thankfully, now you don’t have to worry because there are cloud-based electronic design automation systems that can handle the work. These systems not only allow you to create your PCB designs on the cloud, they also find solutions when you hit a roadblock like a missing layout footprint or schematic symbol.

All you have to do is, contact the company and they will create the part for you just like the library team in a bigger company. Sometimes, you can get your designs in as little as 5 minutes. For embedded designers who routinely face issues with parts to complete their designs, these systems are highly useful.
