PCB CAD Translation, EDA Conversion

Electronic CAD (ECAD), Mechanical CAD (MCAD)

EDA Conversion, PCB CAD Translation

Argus (AESPL) has expertise in EDA Conversions ( Electronic Design Automation ) and we explored different techniques to migrate design data from different ECAD, MCAD Systems. Argus Key focus is to ensure that the customer gets a high degree of interoperability and design investment protection when transitioning from existing tool. We ensure the design data integrity and help you in leveraging existing design for other future designs.

Many companies who has in-house expertise may experience peak overloads that require periodic outsourcing for EDA conversion Activities.Argus Engineering services Group addresses needs of customers by providing off-shore and on-site Resources.

EDA Conversions

  • Schematics translation/conversion
  • PCB layout translation.
  • Netlist conversions.
  • PCB CAD library conversions.
  • Any Gerber file set translated to layout tool of preference.
  • Database conversions from other Electronic CAD (ECAD) systems or Gerber data to facilitate non-restrictive future development.
  • Scripts to improve automaton for PCB translations.
  • EDA tool-chain support: Mentor Graphics, Cadence, Altium,Zuken.

CAD Translation Workflow

  • Customer Inputs: PCB data Base (schematics, Layout, Libraries ), Bill of material, DRC rules, layer stack-up, templates for documentation
  • PCB Data base auto translations done for required tool chain.
  • Review and Editing of translated schematics, layout to ensure properties which are lost in auto translation are corrected.
  • DRC review.
  • Schematic netlist and layout netlist compare.
  • Gerber setup as per Original Project requirement.
  • Documentation and release.
