McCAD Schematics module is a sophisticated engineering database
management system that allows the electronic designer to easily
create and revise electronic circuit designs (digital or analog)
directly. It can access thousands of standard or custom on-line
libraries in seconds, retrieving the necessary information to support
the current design task at hand. It is an on -line system that constructs
the databases as the design is created. This process differs from
many other CAE systems that require the user to first create the
complete schematic and then use post-processing utilities to complete
the network definition. As a result, McCAD Schematics makes editing
easy and provides absolute data extraction.
The user has at his disposal a large work surface that allows the
creation of designs up to engineering "E" size (34"
x 44"). McCAD Schematics also permits the designer to work
on many independent drawings simultaneously. A sophisticated auto-interconnect
routing engine facilitates rapid schematic interconnects. McCAD
Schematics generates a variety of output formats which also includes
a standard Spice list output which can be used with our McCAD 3-Spice
mixed mode simulation package. The McCAD Schematics module fully
integrates with the McCAD PCB-ST layout module.
The PCB-ST module
is an integrated PCB layout design environment for the board designer
who does serious layout work and requires the availability of
powerful design and edit tools at his fingertips. PCB-STs' numerous
automated features allows you to quickly and easily complete your
PCB-ST is net list driven and supports full forward and backward
annotation of all net and component attributes passed to and from
our McCAD Schematics. Cross checking is a snap. PCB-ST contains
many intelligent features such as auto via insertion, design rule
checking, dynamic place, auto ground plane creation, and auto
thermal dispersion, which simplify and assist the designer with
A number of routing options are provided. Included within these
options is an internal point to point router which assists the
user who wishes to do line by line routing. This method of assisted
routing has proven to be very effective for many analog designers.
The PCB -ST module also easily links into McCAD Tracker and McCAD
Trailblazer which are optional full featured autorouting engines,
employing "push and shove technologies", providing superior
routing performance. Up to 16 layers can be routed at breakneck
speeds as all of these routers are available in native OSs for
the power user. McCAD Trailblazer provides the user with a flexible
interactive routing mode.
McCAD PCB-ST contains features such as; an on-line library editor,
user definable design libraries,custom SMT Macro generator, net
and part query and editing,auto labeling and much, much more.

module please select the MORE FACTS button below.
The Gerber Translator module
converts the PCB-ST designs into a standard format Gerber photo-plotting
text command file. This allows the user to produce the highest
possible accuracy fabrication tools automatically. The generated
format is universally accepted world-wide.
