Auto Merging Procedure of Electronic Circuit with 3D PEEC Equivalent Model of PCB Layout

New PCB import options give possibility to extract BOM report (Bill of Material) from ODB++ file format. During importing information about all PCB components and pins is translated from ODB++ to Excel spreadsheet – an essential part of automatic merging procedure.

As a result of 3D PEEC calculation equivalent circuit of PCB layout will be automatically merged with functional scheme based on BOM data. Netlist device representing initial functional circuit can be easily substituted with complete scheme including all parasitic effects of PCB traces directly in System Diagram, preserving all the existing connections to other devices.

Advanced ODB++ Import Procedure

  • Full control of overall process of ODB++ importing
  • Support of ODB++ V8 reading and import of drills objects
  • Options to exclude features outside profile and outside nets during PCB data import
  • Option to ignore net $NONE$ during PCB data import
  • Possibility to exclude footprints from PCB data import
  • Controlling of top and bottom footprints visualization color
  • Controlling of footprints offset from top and bottom layers
  • Autogenerate nets option for PCB models with incomplete information about nets

Updated Stackup Editor gives possibility to configure ODB++ import options directly from Stackup Editor, where user can define as many presets as needed for different PCB configurations.
