Why Choose SOLIDWORKS PCB?
PCB enables the productivity you need to design Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) quickly along with unique collaboration between electrical and 3D mechanical design teams. It offers a clear advantage where ECAD-MCAD collaboration is critical for overall success of electronic product design.
SOLIDWORKS PCB is a set of tools engineered to bridge the gap between electrical and mechanical designs for mechatronics and electrical engineers.
ECAD-MCAD Design Collaboration
Unmatched ECAD-MCAD integration and collaboration with SOLIDWORKS that unifies
design data and pushes changes to both sides of the design project.
PCB Design Engine
Industry-proven, Altium®-based design engine for layout and routing of printed circuit boards.
Modern Schematic Entry
Full-featured Altium®-based schematic capture tool with extensive drafting capabilities, libraries, and electrical rules.
Managed ECAD-MCAD ECO Process
A managed Engineering Change Order (ECO) process to and from SOLIDWORKS PCB and SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD takes care of design changes including board shape, component placement, mounting holes, and cutouts, which keeps designs in sync.
Real-Time 3D Clearance Checking
Visualize the PCB with components inside of the mechanical enclosure to reduce costly prototypes by ensuring that the board and components fit the mechanical enclosures with real-time 3D clearance checking.
Mixed-Mode SPICE 3f5 Simulator
Simulate and analyze analog and mixed-signal circuits from within the schematic editor to make design trade-offs and avoid unnecessary design revisions by performing functional validation on designs prior to layout or manufacturing.
SOLIDWORKS PCB combines the best electronics and PCB design technology with an easy-to-use interface that provides the productivity needed to get electronic circuits and PCBs designed quickly and efficiently.
Powerful Mechatronics/Electronics Design
SOLIDWORKS PCB does not compromise on its core focus, with a powerful set of PCB design features to meet the demands of today’s mechatronics/electronics designs and finish designs quickly and efficiently.
Increase Design Team Efficiency
SOLIDWORKS PCB simplifies mechatronic/electronic design with fullfeatured capabilities along with unique “on-demand” ECAD-MCAD collaboration that enables cross-discipline product development and intelligent collaboration between electronic and mechanical teams.
Search online supplier databases and link your design components to match real-time device parametric data, pricing, and availability, putting the most up-to-date information at your fingertips throughout the entire design process to make immediate decisions to meet electrical requirements and budget and deadlines.
Component parametric database support
Place component parametric data directly from a corporate database keeping the components used in your design synchronized with data stored in the database.
