Mentor Graphics and Digi-Key bring low-cost EDA tool for PCB design
May 22, 2014 // Julien Happich
Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation has joined forces with Mentor Graphics Corporation to create a unique concept-to-prototype design tool targeted for green-field projects before transition to production.
Available from Digi-Key, the Designer Schematic product from Mentor Graphics addresses escalating demand from professional engineers for Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software at an affordable price point for new R&D projects, while facilitating access to the latest parts.
With Designer Schematic, Mentor Graphics is extending its range of PCB development solutions, now serving individual engineers working on conceptual projects, the desktop market with PADS, and the extended enterprise with its flagship Xpedition flow.
The Designer Schematic tool is scheduled to launch early this summer, at an unprecedented sub-$300 price point. Engineers will gain the benefit of first-class design tools, as well as increased freedom to use new components with error-free EDA representation, as they are released, providing direct paths to quick-turn PCB layout and manufacturing services.
