Labun Nuclear Technologies

Streamlining development of replacement electronics for nuclear power plants with SOLIDWORKS® PCB.

Challenge

Accelerate the development of digital printed circuit boards (PCBs) as replacements for analog circuits, instruments, and electronic control systems, which were installed in nuclear power plants decades ago.

Summary

Add SOLIDWORKS PCB powered by Altium electronic design software to its SOLIDWORKS Professional mechanical design installation.

Results
  • Released first PCB board to production two days after installation
  • Saved thousands of dollars annually
  • Eliminated need for prototype boards
  • Improved ability to make design changes late in process
