– EDA software provider EMA Design Automation
has struck a deal to offer Perception Software’s
SymXpert PCB schematic tool.
As large-pin-count components are more frequently used in PCB designs, the creation of schematic symbols for new parts has become increasingly time-consuming and error-prone, the company says.
SymXpert is said to automate the symbol creation process by eliminating manual data entry and simplifying pin data verification. It includes intelligent content extraction; data validation; rule-based graphics and pin arrangement, and template-driven generation.
