PADS Professional Premium overview

With this Hybrid-SaaS solution you will have access to cloud collaboration and version management, part selection, library creation, component sourcing data and even more tools that enable a complete PCB Design flow.

Key features

PCB design and analysis

PADS Professional Premium delivers everything you need to design your simplest to most complex PCB designs.

Supply chain resilience

When creating a schematic, PCB engineers have access to real-time component sourcing data, empowering them to make more informed decisions about their selected components when the cost of making changes is lowest.

Cloud-enabled collaboration

With PADS Professional Premium you can store and access PCB design assets in a secure cloud workspace through any web browser, anywhere.

Sharing design and BOM data with all project stakeholders and cross-functional team members is effortless and made secure with role-based team management.

Part research and creation

Search for components from an ever-expanding catalog of billions of parts.

If the required symbol or footprint for a part is not found, you can use the Part Creation Service to easily request that this library information be created, or you can create custom library elements using either of two wizard-based apps that provide part builder templates for symbols and a guided IPC compliant footprint builder.

ECAD/MCAD Co-design

With PADS Professional Premium both the PCB and the mechanical engineer stay in sync, leveraging best-in-class ProSTEP file exchange format (IDX), making collaboration convenient, accurate and effective.

PCB manufacturing

Integrated DFM analysis in PADS Professional Premium allows you to identify and correct potential PCB fabrication and assembly issues in the design database before they hit the production floor, eliminating costly manufacturing delays while ensuring the electrical performance of the final product.

Free on-demand learning

A complete portfolio of learning paths for schematic design, constraint definition, PCB layout, and library creation and management.
