  • The "user friendly" environment allows rapid acclamation to computer-aided drafting.
  • Multi-sheet documents can be linked to a project file from which a single net list and parts list can be extracted.
  • An on-line Library editor allows you to create new symbols without leaving the design environment.
  • Automatic label sequencing eliminates the problem of conflicting net names and reference designators.
  • The auto-name incrementing feature allows quick connection when creating break-out wires from busses.
  • McCAD Schematics supports "intelligent bussing". Each bus "knows" what signals it carries. On-line monitoring avoids accidental misconnections and movement of bus structures results in automatic update of all break-outs. Busses are automatically managed across multi-sheet documents.
  • Intelligent tie-point management results in fast dynamic updates when junctions are removed.
  • An Auto Interconnect Routing Engine automatically routes and connects devices across long distances.
  • Three interconnection techniques (automatic, semiautomatic and manual) are supported, allowing flexible and rapid design.
  • Device packaging is supported for both single and multiple sheets. The user can design at the gate or function level and then let McCAD Schematics package the design into real world devices.
  • Drafting speed is enhanced by allowing adjustment of individual wires while multiple objects are selected.
  • Devices and associated text can be rotated during and after placement.
  • A Library move and sort program is provided with your McCAD Schematics package.
