Software Enables Communication Between Layout and Schematic
DesignAdvance Systems Inc., a developer of intelligent EDA solutions for PCB design, has announced the release of CircuitProbe. The product enables bi-directional communication, through IPC, between layout and a PDF of the schematic. The tool gives both designers and engineers a mechanism to select one or more design elements in either Cadence Allegro Viewer environment or a PDF of the schematic and have the corresponding design elements selected in the other application. Featured capabilities include: interactive clustering; save physical design templates; population of any Allegro selection set; and verify location of design elements in either application.
