Texas Instruments introduced WEBENCH Schematic Export. The software is a new online tool for exporting analog designs from TI’s WEBENCH Design Center to computer-aided design (CAD) development platforms from Cadence Design Systems, Mentor Graphics and Altium. With WEBENCH Schematic Export, engineers no longer need to manually enter the design into the CAD platform.
Tanner EDA and SoftMEMS are hosting a webinar about eliminating bottlenecks in MEMS-IC co-design. The online seminar will take place April 10th at 8:30am Pacific time (11:30am Eastern time). The webcast will feature a presentation, demonstration, and live Q&A session. Tanner EDA provide tools for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) and MEMS devices. SoftMEMS provides the CAD design environment used for the development and test of MEMS products.
Magma Design Automation introduced Excalibur-Litho fab analysis framework for the development and monitoring of advanced lithography solutions. The tool collects and organizes design and real-time data from the semiconductor manufacturing floor (such as defectivity, metrology and tool history). Excalibur-Litho is built on an open-architecture database that enables safe and secured CAD access and easy fab integration.
Sunstone Circuits released version 4.1 of the PCB123 circuit board design software. PCB123 version 4.1 makes the prototyping process faster, easier and more accurate, from project concept to PCB delivery. The latest version of Sunstone Circuits’ PCB design tool has been configured into an even more user-friendly and intuitive resource for design engineers.
Sunstone Circuits announced version four of their PCB123 CAD software for PCB designers. With Sunstone PCB123 v4, engineers design with full knowledge of the budgetary and scheduling impacts of their design decisions, as well as the hard engineering information. The free-to-use, no license required design tool increases flexibility in schematic and layout editing. Many of the parts research elements that design engineers use in the Digi-Key website are also available to them inside the PCB123 tool.
Blue Ridge Numerics announced two live webinars on Digital Prototyping in a Flow and Thermal World. The first webcast will take place on Wednesday, April 28, 2010, at 11:00 a.m. ET and cover the importance of flow and thermal simulations from within the CAD environment. The second online seminar will place on Thursday, April 29, at 12:00 noon ET and will cover the importance of thermal simulations from within the CAD environment with a focus on the LED lighting industry.
Sunstone Circuits (Sunstone) released version 3.3 of PCB123, which is a circuit board design solution for the electronics design industry. PCB123 v3.3 includes additional design capabilities for PCB designers. PCB123 v3.3 supports a seamless design flow to design and assembly services. The PCB design software can convert any file on the layout side from previous versions of PCB123, enabling designers to retain previous design work while taking care of real-time ordering available in v3.3. PCB123 is available for free.
