SCHEMATIC EDITOR

A connected design platform with instant access to live, online content: searchable part information from leading vendors, help, support and much more

INTEGRATED SERVICES REDUCES DESIGN TIME AND COSTS

YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR PARTS TO BE CREATED ?

Don’t wait, download part data natively within the Schematic Editor from your preferred online part vendor, for instant use within your design. With capabilities including design re-use, design variation, global product teamworking, constraint management and much more, your eCADSTAR designs can be well-structured from the outset and all the way to manufacture. With a well-structured design, it’s easy to re-use the circuits you capture for your current design in future products.

WEB PART LOOKUP

eCADSTAR features direct integration to some of the world’s largest part vendors and online component libraries.

The web lookup functionality allows you to find part information instantly, with direct access to live stock, pricing, and datasheets.

CONCURRENT DESIGN

Simplify schematic layout with off-page connectors and global signals to break large circuits into manageable schematic sheets. Within Schematic Editor, sheets can be locked individually. While an engineer is editing a sheet, other engineers worldwide can see that it is locked, but they can still safely edit unlocked sheets.

Concurrent design

Design variants in eCADSTAR Schematic Editor.

VARIATION & COMPONENT BROWSER

Instead of creating multiple, slightly-different designs, you can define design variants in eCADSTAR Schematic Editor. These definitions work intelligently with eCADSTAR PCB Editor. Within each variant, you can control properties such as fitted status and even what part you wish to use. You can instantly change the active variant you are editing on the canvas.

CONSTRAINT DRIVEN DESIGN

Meet your electrical performance criteria by setting design constraints. Apply constraints to parts, pins, electrical nets (E-nets) and other objects in the Constraint Browser.
Constraints may be set and modified in either Schematic or PCB Editor, and annotated forward or backward between designs, ensuring they are always in sync. You enter constraints in a clearly-presented object hierarchy, in clear tables. Define classes and groups to organize your design quickly, create differential or pin pairs and buses. Cross probe your selection between the canvas and constraint browser at a pin, part, net or E-net level, in both Schematic and PCB editor simultaneously.
