CAD for electronics design workflows: from concept to product with no human glue

Estimated Watching Time: 48 minutes


ECAD and MCAD working in synchronization in electromechanical engineering design workflow

The electromechanical design project is over. The product is complete, delivered and out the door. Timelines were met (well, nearly), and the customer is happy. It's time to take stock, celebrate, or start the next design project.

But how much of your success was down to human intervention between disciplines? Engineers and designers ensure that the design in each domain was correct and verified before progressing to the next. The human glue that so often stitches our mechanical and electronic disciplines together, that makes sure the overall project hangs together and the output from each design domain works with the next.

Shouldn’t our design software do that stitching for us?

Watch this webinar to learn how to remove the human glue.

Using modern CAD to improve the electromechanical design process

Remove the human glue between your design domains by moving the stitching to where it belongs: the design toolset.

Learn how to:

  • Reduce the need for human checking when passing design data between domains by automating design rule checking and correcting errors before they propagate
  • Facilitate seamless import of wire bond information from ECAD to MCAD and run clearance checking
  • Reduce errors by unifying MCAD and ECAD design teams with a common view into design data to reduce ambiguity
  • Negate the need for duplication of effort by collaborating on a single dataset
  • Visualize the complete design, both mechanical and electronic in either domain

Ensure design manufacturability and ensure collaboration between MCAD and ECAD disciplines

In this webinar, we describe how using the latest MCAD and ECAD software tools in an integrated design flow during system and product development can provide design checking and verification at every step of the way. Finding and fixing errors before they can propagate down the chain. Getting your product to market quicker, at less cost and with higher quality.

Learn about an important new contribution to electronic systems design: support for wire bonding in the MCAD domain with information imported from the electronic design domain. Ensure design manufacturability by easily visualizing and correcting any mechanical clearance violations between wire bonds and enclosure when connecting dies to packaging, other dies or connecting between PCBs.

MCAD and ECAD Integration: Achieving First-Pass Success in Electromechanical Design

Not only is it important to oversee and optimize the handover between design domains, it’s also imperative to maximize synchronization between disciplines during each design phase. Learn how a mechanical and electronics co-design or MCAD and ECAD integrated design approach can help achieve first-pass success in product development and design.
