Components management are the most crucial part of the electronic design system, but with rapid advancements in technology, selecting components has become a major challenge for engineers across the electronic industry. The process to select components appears to be easy on paper but at the execution level there are many challenges and techniques involved.
Skilled component engineers are thus brought together to assist the design teams in this meticulous task. The component engineers need to have in-depth knowledge and experience in the fundamentals of components, its specifications, construction, and functionality. Once the circuit design is ready, the design engineers should have a clear idea of the various components that are necessary to be implemented. Essentially the design engineering and the component engineering teams need to collaboratively select the most cost effective components without compromising on the design quality.
Below mentioned are the key approaches that enable selection of cost effective and function efficient components:
