Product #: 6CP-CBR-PLC
Overview – Design rigid and flexible printed circuit boards while taking the overall mechanical design into account
The Printed Circuit Board Designer role enables you to design printed circuit boards while taking the overall mechanical design into account. Through the bidirectional interface provided by the Intermediate Data Format (IDF), electronic component information from industry-standard electrical CAD systems can retrieved to create a complete digital mock-up of a PCB. 3D definition enables analysis the design to ensure that the PCB fits within its mechanical environment. The interface also enables the sending of pertinent information, such as board outlines and reserved areas of spatial and technological constraints, back to the ECAD system.
- Create 3D mechanical shapes of printed circuit boards in the context of the mechanical assembly
- Retrieve electronic components from ECAD through the bi-directional IDF interface (Intermediate Data Format)
- Define flexible circuit boards, including electronic components, working interchangeably between the flattened and folded representation
