Mentor Graphics Corp. has joined the ProSTEP iViP association ECAD Implementor Forum (ECAD-IF), which specializes in the harmonization and specification of ISO STEP data-models and data exchange interfaces (standard for the exchange of product model data).

As an electrical design tools vendor, Mentor Graphics' membership of ECAD-IF lends further weight to the development of common electrical exchange standards in general, and particularly for the automotive industry.

ECAD-IF has previously made significant contributions to the detailed elaboration of the ISO STEP AP212 electrical system design and harness standard; more recently it has also been responsible for the development of the KBL automotive electrical harness standard, a specialized derivative of AP212.

"AP212 is our chosen open standard for supporting data exchange with our CHS tool suite because the AP212 technical scope (from concept to manufacture) and its industry scope (from cars to trains, planes and other transportation platforms) matches exactly with our CHS product offering," said Martin O'Brien, general manager, Mentor Graphics integrated electrical systems division.
