Verification design flow connects third-party PCB tools

AWR Corp. has released a new product within its AWR Connected portfolio, specifically an ODB++ PCB layout verification design flow for connecting third-party PCB tools with its Microwave Office (MWO) and AXIEM software solutions.

The ODB++ PCB flow specifically moves layout data from a customer's PCB vendor tool into a relevant and independent file format ready for use and import into AWR software, extending its compatibility to popular firms such as Altium, Intercept and Zuken.

This new ODB++ compatibility solution not only transfers important intelligence from the PCB layout/database into Microwave Office, but it also gives the user the ability to selectively import either by net or by region. This selective filtering allows the engineer to focus on the design's most critical aspects, and by reducing the amount of unnecessary data passed to the simulator, this importer also reduces set up and simulation time.

AWR Connected for ODB++ is available today.
