Collaboration around ECAD
data faces a similar dilemma: Which format should I base my solution on?
As mentioned, the current generation of ECAD
tools includes functionality that can perform various EMC and EMI rule checks against both placement and routing to support optimal layout design.
This standard has been used to efficiently communicate objects such as the PCB outline and mounting hoie locations to the ECAD
designer and component placement to the MCAD designer.
Requesting compliance checks in the ECAD
development phase means that compliance data and checks have to be included into this set of engineering data.
tool and silicon IO technology advances, we can expect to attain the optimal pinout for every design, without sacrificing product performance or the designer's time.
Data compiled included job titles and functions, years of experience, location, types of projects, annual salaries, annual sales, job satisfaction and challenges, and ECAD
tools used, to name some.
Wideburg Solutions specializes in the integration of PLM with ERP, MCAD and ECAD
applications for customer-driven manufacturers in the automotive and mechanical industries.
Both the electronics design (ECAD
) and the mechanical enclosure design (MCAD) are very complex processes (FIGURE 2) requiring not just the physical design, but also many types of analysis and simulation, and the respective designs are highly related.
Areas of focus include Enterprise Change Management, Configuration Management, ECAD
/ MCAD integration, and Product / Part Approval and Sign-off.
Also, the flexibility of modern ECAD
tools means that there can be easy experimentation of "what if" scenarios by examining the effect of different parts.
Thales, a leader in critical information systems, cybersecurity, data protection and licensing, can today reveal that it has extended its decade long partnership with EPLAN, the Computer Aided Design (eCAD
) company, to ensure on-demand license delivery and activation for all products.
