Osram selects global EDA platform

25 April 2001 Design Automation

Innoveda has announced that Osram, an international producer of lamps and electronic control devices, is standardising on the Innoveda EDA environment for PCB design. Osram's decision follows successful implementation of the tools at its Munich headquarters, and it has purchased a complete and integrated PCB design environment including Innoveda's PowerPCB printed circuit board layout system, PowerLogic schematic capture tool, CAM350 pre-production CAM and fabrication analysis system, and HyperLynx signal integrity tool. It says that the environment will be implemented at the company's design and manufacturing sites in Germany, Italy, Singapore, India and the US.

Tool description

The PowerPCB layout system provides a shape-based, rules-driven design layout solution. With automatic and interactive routing and OLE automation functionality it offers seamless interoperability with front-end design and back-end test, repair and manufacturing processes. PowerLogic is a robust, multi-sheet, schematic capture solution designed to build an effective and simplified front-end environment for PowerPCB. HyperLynx tools provide pre and post-layout signal integrity simulation software with EMC and crosstalk analysis. The tools address high-speed PCB problems throughout the design cycle, from early architectural stages through post-layout verification. CAM350 combines DFF analysis, DRC checking, test fixturing, planning and tooling in one system.

PowerPCB and PowerLogic tools have been specified in all Osram development locations worldwide, says Innoveda. CAM350 tools will be used in Germany, Italy, the US and India, and HyperLynx is being deployed mainly in the US.

Innoveda is represented locally by ASIC Design Services, (011) 315 8316.
