EMA Adds DesignAdvance's CircuitSpace to PCB Design Flow

EMA Design Automation(TM), a full-service provider of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, announced that it will now offer DesignAdvance’s CircuitSpace(TM) solution to its customers. “CircuitSpace is a great addition to our PCB design flow solution, providing improved communications between hardware engineers and layout designers,” said Manny Marcano, President and CEO of EMA. “This patented technology will enable our customers to increase productivity and profitability.”

Component placement is time consuming and has traditionally proven to be difficult to automate. With component counts on the rise and 10,000 part boards becoming commonplace, managing placement becomes more difficult and can take months to complete. CircuitSpace automates this laborious task with the following features:

  • Hierarchical design with autoclustering(TM)
  • Intelligent physical design reuse and replication
  • Project wide concurrent layout development
  • Template generation for global library usage across divisions
  • Template usage with and without etch
  • Automated layout reference designator propagation
  • Advanced sustaining engineering and ECO process
  • Automated change report between layout designs

“We’ve seen customers reduce their placement time by over 50%,” said Edward Pupa, CEO of DesignAdvance Systems. “This allowed them to release their design to manufacturing weeks ahead of schedule. It is benefits like these that EMA can now bring to their PCB design customers.”
