Specialist training to maximise your investment in Pulsonix.
Training Courses by Pulsonix
Here is the list of courses that we provide directly. Other courses may be available from our training partners.
|SCM/PCB Getting Started||
A one-day design foundation course. Taking you through the process of getting started with Pulsonix, this will save you many hours of time up-front. Learn the tips and tricks from experts! Essential starting point if self-guided learning is not for you.
This 3-day course runs through the full process, Schematic to PCB and manufacturing. It covers Technology files, design set-up and use, library tools and creation, and outputs to Gerber/Excellon/ODB++/PDF for manufacturing. Led by one of our product/industry experts, this course is valuable not just for learning Pulsonix but also to guide your design processes.
For one-to-one tuition, we will contact you to check which facets of Pulsonix you wish to cover in detail. The emphasis on those areas can then be adjusted to take your preferences into account.
|Library Creation and Management||
This course will cover component data creation and management within the Pulsonix design environment. Understanding how to create Parts and Footprints correctly helps to ensure right-first-time design. Using the variety of tools within Pulsonix, the course runs through Schematic symbols, PCB Footprints, and Parts, as well as Documentation Symbols. It also covers input of information from manufacturers datasheets using various methods.
Learn how to setup and run the High Speed design editor. Driven through the constraint rules manager, enter rules and apply them to the design. This course guides you through each of the rules and explains what they can do for you in context of your designs. Learn about the Rules Spreadsheet, Rules, Net Class Editor, manual routing and the Head-up display, Bus router and Spiral tracks.
|Pulsonix Database Connection (PDC)||
If you're running or managing the Database Connection option, this course will guide you on how to set it up using the ODBC connection. It will show you how to match and align parts to database fields as well as migrating and importing Parts data between the database and Pulsonix. If starting with a new database (Stockit for example), the course will aid you setting up relevant tables in the database and on-going management.
|Advanced Technology Features||
For users who have purchased the Advanced Technology option, this course will guide you through setting up and using Embedded Components, Chip-on-board features, Board Cavities and layer spans, flexi-rigid PCBs and spiral tracks/copper.
This course covers setting up Pulsonix Schematics, adding Spice model references to Parts and running the Spice simulator. It shows you how to add Simulation parameters to the design and stimulus using unique parts. Once simulated, Random Probing is discussed and the resultant simulation analysed. Our expert covers the Schematic design, the Parts entry, the simulator interface and the electronics generally. All spice simulators have idiosyncrasies and unique error and warning messages. If new to Spice simulation, this course is essential for you.
We can put together any course over any number of days for you. We can tailor a course to your exact specification and your staff requirements for any aspect of the Pulsonix product or design process.
For example, you may wish to cover Parts creation and the manufacturing outputs in one day. Another day may involve the Scripting language and working examples, and Report writing using the Report Maker option. Taking training on these items alone would significantly improve your productivity.
There is no cost penalty for taking a custom course over a standard course.
|PCB Design Course||
This course has been created for people who have limited exposure to PCB design. Perhaps you've just graduated or are an electronics engineer who needs to now create the PCB as well as the Schematic. You might be a mechanical engineer who needs to understand more, this course is for you.
It can be attended by anyone designing PCBs, even if you aren't using Pulsonix. It focuses on designing boards, not the design tool itself. The course will guide you though all aspects of the PCB, from board selection to via types to spacing rules, gaps, tracks and manufacturing.
