Spring rains are bringing summer design tools as well as the more traditional flora. ANSYS (Canonsburg, PA) will soon introduce DesignSpace Enterprise--a family of design and process integration software compatible with both Windows NT and UNIX workstations. The graphical interface, Solid Browser, provides a common window into solid model geometry where users can access and analyze geometry from all leading CAD programs. Based on a new ANSYS concept called Advanced Controls, DesignSpace Enterprise allows analysts to set up templates to guide design engineers as they prepare models for advanced analyses downstream. Engineers can automatically document and communicate data over the Internet with the DesignSpace Web-Based Report. The software package will be released in three phases over the next nine months. The first release, DesignSpace for Pro/Engineer, Unigraphics, Parasolids, and .SAT format, will be available this quarter. DesignSpace for SolidWorks and Autodesk, including access to Advanced Controls, will be available the third quarter. DesignSpace for CADDS will be available by the end of the year.

MCU manufacturers have become excellent sources for information you can use to get a head start on your next design. In addition to the normal data sheets and evaluation boards, MCU manufacturers also often provide complete reference designs -- working designs that establish a proven baseline for creating your own custom design.
