Overview

ECAD/MCAD Co-Design

Poor communication between PCB designers and mechanical engineers can cause projects to miss schedule and cost targets by 50% or more. When these teams can collaborate in real-time they can make sure the PCBs will fit perfectly in their mechanical housing prior to fabrication.
