Prompted by the growing crossover between the electronics and mechanical areas, Cimmetry Systems has bolstered the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) capabilities of its AutoVue visualization tool.
As part of the AutoVue Version 19.2 product family, Cimmetry has added two new offerings designed to address the specific requirements of Printed Circuit Board designers and contract manufacturers and marrying further the capabilities of CAD and EDA tools.
With AutoVue EDA Professional, engineers can natively view manufacturing documents, PCB layouts and schematics, while its markup/annotation features and real-time collaboration capabilities promise to facilitate communication across extended teams and to standardize the design review process. The software allows EDA to be integrated with the overall design process without requiring the purchase of costly EDA licenses, company officials claim.
The second addition to this EDA product line is AutoVue Electro-Mechanical Professional, what Cimmetry dubs as its most complete AutoVue solution. The release features native document viewing, markup, cross-probing and electro-mechanical digital mockup capabilities for the widest range of document types, including PCB layouts and schematics, 3D parts and assemblies, 2D CAD drawings and Office documents.
Cimmetry is a subsidiary of Agile Software Corp., which was acquired earlier this year by Oracle Corp.
