IoT is the hottest topic in the marketplace right now. It’s coming into virtually every person’s life in terms of equipment and devices being used. In effect, IoT is automation coming to your doorstep, your home, car and coming into every workplace.
Printed circuit board (PCB) design software, more commonly known as “tools,” is the basis for creating today’s advanced IoT devices. Considerable credit goes to PCB design tool suppliers who’ve led the industry with state-of-the-art software to properly design and layout IoT PCBs. The field has a number of suppliers, but only a few leaders. One example is personal automated design solutions, or PADS, from Mentor Graphics which, over time, has become the most popular for regular PCBs and now, IoT PCB designs.
