Extensive Customizable User Roles and Permissions

Fully-customizable, built-in permissions for managers, librarians, project leaders, and designers, ensure seamless collaboration while protecting critical IP. Assign individual pages or sections of the project to specific designers for efficient team collaboration or create read-only access for easy design review by any stakeholders.

Automated File Check In and Check Out

Check-out files to prevent multiple users from concurrently working on the same portion of the design and reduce the risk overriding any recent updates. With Check-in of the design, automatic versioning will make sure everyone is working on the most up-to-date files and title block information including dates, users, and version history are automatically updated, reducing errors and confusion between design versions.

Error Free Release to Manufacturing

Automatically generate and package the necessary files to manufacture the PCB using a single interface. Select from IPC-2581, ODB++, NC Drill, NC Route, IPC-356, TestPrep, FabMaster, Pick and Place, PDFs, design files, and BOMs. Files are automatically packaged in a zipped folder, added to the project directory, and labeled with the date and time of generation for easy and error-free delivery to the PCB Supplier.

PCB Libraries and Validation

Easily determine if library footprints are in sync with the board file and ensure the success of your design. During the check-in process, automatically generate a validation report that compares the version ID of the footprint and padstack files in the promoted library to the version placed on the PCB.

Templates

Eliminate the need for design set up and create a standard format for you company’s designs by including your company’s templates as part of generating a new data-managed project. Templates streamline the design process for your engineers while creating consistency throughout your design team.

Promoted Part Libraries

Reduce errors and save time with approved parts. Import schematic symbols, PCB footprints and pad stacks. Once components are approved, parts are promoted and shared with multiple users in a centralized library—which can be associated with one or multiple projects.
