No engineer wants a smoldering prototype.
Today’s products can include many electrical components and changes to these can have an impact on the software and mechanical elements of the design or its parts. It’s essential that the entire team be able to visualize PCB-related designs alone or in parallel with overall product designs. But it’s hard to collaborate if you can’t see what’s going on or aren’t sure you have the latest information.
PTC Creo View ECAD is a simple and powerful viewer that everyone can use to get the information they want. No need for either the software that created the data or specialized ECAD skills. PTC Creo View ECAD supports Printed Circuit Board (PCB) data from all major electronic design automation (EDA) tools, as well as drawings and documents from a multitude of sources. Now the entire team can view and then analyze and validate schematic and PCB designs. With PTC Creo View ECAD you can keep your product cost down and test fewer prototypes.
PTC Creo offers a complete visualization solution PTC Creo ECAD-MCAD collaboration extension (ECX). ECX enables a synchronized view of the mechanical, PCB and schematic. Electrical and mechanical designers view the design in the environment in which they are most comfortable yet still find objects in the other user’s domain. Changes made in one environment are updated in the other. Finally, you can see clearly now.
Mark Caradonna, Product Manager for PTC Creo View ECAD at PTC, introduces and demonstrates PTC Creo View ECAD, which enables you to quickly and easily visualize PCB-related designs by themselves or in parallel with overall product designs.
PTC Creo View ECAD enables designers and team members to quickly view, analyze and validate schematic and Printed Circuit Board designs. When used with PTC Creo View MCAD, the mechanical and electronic designs can be viewed in a single environment.
