Connector for Zuken CR-5000 ()
Connector for Zuken CR-5000 manages Zuken CR-5000 designs throughout the product life cycle to accelerate product development. It leverages the design team collaboration capabilities of Collaborative Innovation to facilitate a concurrent printed circuit board (PCB) design processes resulting in fewer engineering changes and lower production costs.
Ensuring that the right design data are being properly shared and managed across the value chain (a company’s suppliers, partners and customers) is vital to a company’s ability to bring products to market quickly and correctly the first time. In PCB designs, this effort is complicated by several factors including that electronic designs are growing exponentially in complexity (creating several gigabytes of data) and that corporations have geographically dispersed design teams across multiple time zones.
As design and manufacturing functions continue to occur outside the walls of an organization, it is increasingly critical that all members contributing to the PCB design process have full access to the most recent design data, when they need it and wherever they are located. Connector for Zuken CR-5000 allows PCB development teams to collaborate during the board design process, and to collect, track, protect and deliver product design information seamlessly across Electronic Computer Aided Design (ECAD) systems and other enterprise applications.
Connector for Zuken CR-5000 provides a simple, yet secure, workgroup and enterprise data management system that integrates directly into ECAD design environments, allowing a designer to easily share electronic design data with other designers, enterprise users and partners. The product facilitates the concurrent PCB design resulting in fewer engineering changes, shorter development times and lower production costs. With this product, schematic and layout designers can work concurrently on either the same design while keeping design databases synchronized (i.e. components, connectivity, properties, etc.) or on different hierarchical blocks of the schematic design, independently revising their designs in the same project.
Connector for Zuken CR-5000 is intended to work with Collaborative Innovation in order to create a collaborative environment for managing design data from multiple ECAD and/or Mechanical Computer Aided Design (MCAD) tools. Users are able to:
- Independently manage various aspects of the design facilitating collaboration, including the entire schematic hierarchy, PCB layout, panel design, and project directory.
- Create derived outputs (i.e. manufacturing data automatically generated by the ECAD application).
- Manage design variants as defined in the ECAD application, each with its own derived outputs.
- Manage annotation files for the purpose of collaboration with the PCB layout.
- Assign the design to workspace folders to facilitate collaboration.
- Synchronize attributes between the ECAD library and parts in 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.
