@EETimes - that might be a good topic for someone to cover on the PCB designline at some point. Just an overview how different products are designed from the ground up.. a glimpse into schematic capture, simulation, prototype PCB.. what tools are used, etc. Since SMD devices are all the rage, how ARE different companies doing the development? Do the device guys at "Company X" have PCB Milling machines, pick-and-place and wave-soldering systems just lying around sitting next to the office printer? Or are they spending time in simulators, then sending the designs out to some board house for completion? heh.. I dunno, that might be too basic a question that most readers "in the industry" would know. As a hobbist, I'm probably not in the EETimes target audience. :)
