5 Great Engineering Laptops (Plus Free CAD Tool Guide)

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Feb 4, 2020 11:17:00 PM

Finding the Best Performing Engineering Laptop

Our engineering team at Bliley is growing, which is great, but it also introduces some new challenges for small business like ours... finding the best performing engineering laptops for our engineers.

We want to give our engineers the best tools available and create an environment where they can be their most innovative and do the best work of their careers.  Of course, a key to this whole equation is the technology they use day-to-day to get those next generations products designed. We recently kicked off a search for the best laptops that are perfect for engineering workloads. As you can probably imagine, the ideal laptop for an engineer needs to have great compute and graphics power.

Top 18 CAD Tools for RF and Microwave Design Engineers

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Feb 4, 2020 4:17:00 PM

RF and Microwave Design can be ENJOYABLE...

Don't believe me? Many of us already know how designing can easily become extremely long, boring, and tedious. This is especially true for all you RF and Microwave Design Engineers!

Spending hours upon hours designing, finding problems, fixing problems, then repeating the process all over again...It all can become so mentally draining.

Am I bringing back bad memories? Sorry, time for the good news...

So how can you make the long and tedious design process easy (and possibly even enjoyable)? 

You guessed it... Automation and design tools are key. 

Having some great CAD tools on your side can release a significant burden off your back. These tools can save you time and dramatically increase your productivity. Our Top 4 Productivity and collaboration tools will help skyrocket your productivity even further.

Today, we thought we'd help you out by sharing these 18 CAD design tools that can lead to a more simple & enjoyable design session.

5 Simple Steps for Truly Effective Design Reviews

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Feb 4, 2020 11:30:00 AM

As electronics and RF systems have become increasingly complex, the need to catch and fix errors during the design phase of a project has become increasingly important.

Catching an error during the design phase is orders of magnitude less expensive to fix than catching it during the manufacturing or test phases.

8 Common RF Engineering Problems That Impact RF Engineers

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Sep 5, 2019 8:22:00 AM

What's the best way to solve a problem? Preventing the problem from occurring in the first place (or knowing exactly how to tackle an inevitable problem whenever it occurs). In this post, we're going to cover 8 of the most common RF engineering problems that impact RF engineers on the regular. Making yourself more aware of these frequent RF engineering problems will allow you to be more prepared with a solution (or even prevent them from happening in the first place). Less problems = better engineering productivity & happier RF engineers!

The Innovative History of HRL Laboratories

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Mar 13, 2018 6:30:00 AM

To say that HRL Laboratories has made significant contributions to cutting-edge science and technology would be quite an understatement. Known today by its legal corporate title HRL Laboratories LLC, the storied company traces its roots back to the legendary Howard Hughes. Hughes set the standard for HRL's innovative mission, advising his contemporaries to "Do the impossible. Because almost everyone has told me my ideas are merely fantasy."

7 Incredibly Effective Ways to Prevent Pressure Transducer Problems

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Feb 19, 2018 8:28:00 AM

Poor manufacturing environments can significantly reduce the performance quality of a pressure transducer. A failing pressure transducer will lead to problems with sensors and will provide inaccurate readings (or none at all).

A faulty pressure transducer not only can cause frustration and wasted time, but can also lead to unnecessary costs.

To prevent pressure transducer problems or failure from happening in the first place, let's take a look at 7 pressure transducer troubleshooting methods to keep your transducers & sensors working great!
