Products are becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated. Electronic circuit boards, mechanical casings and associated components must fit together and be correct in terms of their design. This is the only way to avoid reworking, bring products to market faster and minimize costs. To achieve this, ECAD and MCAD developers must work together throughout the product design cycle, regardless of the design tools used.
A platform that integrates cross-domain technologies and includes shared libraries provides many benefits of effective collaboration.
