White Paper Makes the Case for an Agile Approach to Power Design

Agile Power Design White PaperThe traditional waterfall approach to system design is failing to meet the needs of many organizations. Market conditions are changing faster than ever, competitors are innovating and it’s important to be able to take advantage of new technology that emerges during the design cycle. Waterfall simply doesn’t offer sufficient flexibility, preventing companies from responding to these changes quickly.

For several years, software engineers have been using an agile approach to product development. Characterized by short iterations, called sprints, this approach has enabled a decrease in development timescales, the ability to respond to changes and ultimately better products.

Electronics design teams have been unable to benefit from agile because the time and cost involved in making, populating and testing PCBs prevents rapid iteration. New design tools and methodologies, however, enable agile by allowing rapid design and analysis in software.

Read this white paper to learn:

  • The problems associated with waterfall development
  • How agile changes the design process
  • What is needed to allow agile to be applied to power design
  • The benefits of adopting an agile approach
