Integrated Schematic and PCB Design Software
The bi-directional data translation between CADSTAR and any 3D mechanical design system via the generic STEP or ACIS data format ensures any updates made in Board Modeler Lite can be passed back into the CADSTAR design.
CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite
Standard CADSTAR Basic builds on all of the feature set available in CADSTAR Lite and expands it to include:
Place and Route Editor XR2000 L6
P.R.Editor XR2000 L6 allows for the placement and routing of PCB designs for up to 6 layer boards, with unlimited pins.
IDF 3D-MCAD/ECAD Integration
+ The IDF Interface enables bi-directional transfer of board outlines, keep out areas and component placement data between CADSTAR PCB layout and your 3D MCAD system.
A more complete MCAD/ECAD integration option is available - CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite which enables bi-directional data translation between CADSTAR and any 3D mechanical design system via the generic STEP or ACIS ++Board Modeler Lite data format.
Variant Manager allows alternate product configurations to be assigned to address product and regional requirements, while storing all of the information in a single Schematic and PCB design file. Variants can include both non-fitted and alternate parts, e.g. different resistor values.
