?Ecad?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release PCB design suite enhances library management from Zuken, which we summarised at the time by saying "Zuken's Cadstar desktop PCB design suite V12.1 features functionality for advanced library management and signal integrity verification, ECAD MCAD integration and improved high-speed routing.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Cadence printed circuit board has new features from Cadence Design Systems: "Cadence Design Systems has released its Cadence Allegro and OrCAD printed circuit board (PCB) software with a range of new features. ".

In May 2008, we covered the news from Altium - take a look at Unified electronics design embraces MCAD which says: "The latest version of Altium's unified electronics design solution introduces over 100 new features that unify the different design processes.".

Take a look also at the news release from Silicon Navigator, Engines aid bespoke ECAD development, as well as Johnston to manage E Canadian ECAD services from Freedom CAD Services, and ECAD software unifies design flows from Altium.
