Bidirectional ECAD-MCAD collaboration
15 October 2008, Programmable Logic

Mentor Graphics has developed design collaboration capability between electrical (ECAD) and mechanical (MCAD) design solutions, enabling teams to use this solution from the design inception to the manufacturing process. Based on the ProSTEP iViP Association-approved electromechanical interchange standard, Mentor’s ECAD-MCAD Collaborator product enables bidirectional, digital communication of incremental design changes and automates the review and approval processes between the respective domains.

PTC is the first supplier of mechanical design solutions to adopt this standard and implement complementary collaboration capability. Together, PTC and Mentor offer a complete end-to-end collaboration solution between MCAD and ECAD designers. These capabilities are expected to significantly improve design process efficiency and cycle times by replacing paper-based methods and static file formats with standards-based processes and easy-to-use graphical visualisation in both the mechanical and electrical design domains.
