Circuit design

The process of circuit design can cover systems ranging from national power grids all the way down to the individual transistors within an integrated circuit.

For simple circuits the design process can often be done by one person without needing a planed or structured design process, but for more complex designs, teams of designers following a systematic approach with intelligently guided computer simulation are becoming increasingly common.

As circuit design is the process of working out the physical form that an electronic circuit will take, the result of the circuit design process is the instructions on how to construct the physical electronic circuit.

This will normally take the form of blueprints describing the size, shape, connectors, etc in use, and artwork or CAM file for manufacturing a printed circuit board or Integrated circuit.

College Student Creates 'Spider-Man' Technology

Buzz60 (June 12, 2012) The Air Force put a challenge out to American college students to see who could come up with the best design to help soldiers climb a 90-foot wall. Engineering students at Utah State University answered the call and won the design contest with a pack that uses vacuum suction to stick to the wall, allowing for scaling like Spider-Man.

Ford Builds the World's Largest Robot-Driven Pickup

TFL Car (Dec. 22, 2013) ( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The Ford F-150 is the best selling vehicle in America...that's a fact, but is it the world's most durable truck? In order to improve and test the F-150's durability, Ford has built the world's largest robot controlled remote control truck. In the past in order to test the durability of an F-150 Ford drove the truck around a punishing circuit but the problem was the testing punished the driver's as much as the truck. In order to solve that problem Ford has created a driverless robotic durability test program as Roman discovered on a recent trip to Dearborn, Michigan.
