eCADSTAR helps EA Technology
eCADSTAR Eliminates Design Constraints for EA Technology
EA Technology, headquartered in Chester, is recognised globally as a leader in its field; enhancing the performance of power networks and providing clients with tailored asset management solutions. After a cost-effective upgrade to their PCB design software, the result provided their PCB engineers with an improved high-speed design platform with limitless possibilities.
EA Technology, an independent provider of end-to-end power engineering solutions, has a ground-breaking mission. To improve the networks globally to accelerate the transition to energy de-carbonisation. Already a world leader in the services they offer and the products they produce, EA Technology continues to find ways to improve its processes, operations and efficiencies. By embracing change and driving innovation they are rewarded with the opportunities that this brings. These rewards are passed on to their customers, our societies and the environment.
Future-proofing design capabilities
Looking to upgrade the design software they approached Quadra to move to eCADSTAR. The forward-thinking company recognised the benefits of this upgrade as the products being designed by their PCB engineers were becoming more complex.Download Case Study
“The training delivered by Quadra was really engaging and it was both enjoyable and enlightening. I feel confident that my newly gained eCADSTAR knowledge will help me deliver projects more efficiently moving forward.”Sam Russell, PCB Designer at EA Technology
How Quadra can help
Quadra Solutions Ltd are the sole supplier of eCADSTAR PCB design software for the UK, Scandinavia
and Benelux and fully supported EA Technology’s transition. To make sure that EA Technology is making the most out of this platform, an experienced eCADSTAR trainer from Quadra visited their head office to
deliver support and guidance to eight of their PCB design engineers. Quadra’s knowledge of the PCB industry is unrivalled, and they pride themselves on the flexible service they extend to all of their customers.
Electronic Design Automation meets internet connectivity
EA Technology is able to benefit from eCADSTAR’s high speed automated and assistive
functionalities in an easy to use environment such as PCB Design Editor, Library Editor,
Schematics Editor and design rule checking. This innovative internet-connected PCB design
platform combines all the power of EDA software with the flexibility of the internet.
“Our engineers were impressed with the new look and feel of eCADSTAR. The library search is
a real strength of the software. It will help limit the amount of time spent searching for parts
and help streamline our workflows. The ongoing technical support was also a major decision-making factor. Having access to a vastly experienced technical support team available
whenever required, helps our team move forward quickly and efficiently whilst getting to
grips with a new tool,” said Graham.
Investing for the Future
For EA Technology to fulfil its mission to promote the development of resilient, accessible, low-cost energy networks to achieve full de-carbonisation, investing in technology and its workforce is key.
eCADSTAR delivers many technological enhancements, which include a powerful schematics editor and enhanced Signal Integrity analysis (SI) which are helping EA Technology make their design work easier and more intuitive. The PCB engineers are really impressed that they can now switch seamlessly between eCADSTAR’s 2D and 3D natively within the design environment with the option of working in both simultaneously.
Supporting values and goals
EA Technology acknowledges that the upgrade to eCADSTAR was the right move as it fully supports their business objectives, has increased their engagement, is more cost-effective saves time and will enable them to fulfil more of their exciting plans currently in development.
