Features and Benefits:

  • Schematic Design: Xpedition Enterprise offers an intuitive schematic capture environment that allows designers to create and modify circuit schematics efficiently. It supports hierarchical design methodologies, making it easier to manage and navigate complex designs.
  • Layout and Routing: The tool provides advanced layout and routing capabilities, enabling designers to create PCB layouts with precision and efficiency. It includes features such as constraint-driven design, auto-routing, interactive routing, differential pair routing, and high-speed design rules to ensure signal integrity.
  • Design Validation: Xpedition Enterprise offers a range of simulation and analysis tools to validate and verify the design. It includes signal integrity analysis to detect and mitigate signal integrity issues, power integrity analysis to ensure proper power distribution, and thermal analysis to manage heat dissipation.
  • Design for Manufacturing (DFM): Xpedition Enterprise incorporates DFM capabilities to optimize designs for manufacturing. It includes features such as DRC (Design Rule Checking), DFA (Design for Assembly) analysis, and manufacturability analysis, helping to identify and fix potential manufacturing issues early in the design process.
  • Library Management: The tool provides a robust library management system, allowing designers to efficiently manage component libraries, including symbols, footprints, and 3D models. It supports integration with component suppliers’ databases for accurate and up-to-date part information.
  • Collaboration and Teamwork: Xpedition Enterprise offers collaboration features that enable multiple designers to work on the same project simultaneously. It supports concurrent design methodologies, allowing designers to partition the design and work in parallel, increasing productivity and reducing time-to-market.
  • Design Reuse and Variant Management: The tool provides capabilities for design reuse and variant management, allowing designers to efficiently create and manage design variations. This is particularly useful for product families where multiple PCB designs share common components and circuits.
  • Design for Test (DFT): Xpedition Enterprise includes features to facilitate design for testability, enabling designers to incorporate testability features into the PCB design. It supports test point insertion, test coverage analysis, and generation of test patterns for manufacturing testing.
  • Documentation and Output Generation: Xpedition Enterprise offers comprehensive documentation capabilities, allowing designers to generate manufacturing files, assembly drawings, bill of materials (BOMs), and other documentation required for fabrication and assembly.
