Dassault Catia Electro-Mechanical PCBToday's consumers require compact electronic devices with greater functionalities. To create high-quality products faster, companies need the integration of realistic Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) inside a virtual product and simplified collaboration between mechanical and electronics specialists.
CATIA Electro-Mechanical Circuit Board Design enables you to design printed circuit boards while taking the overall mechanical design into account. Through the bidirectional interface IDF (Intermediate Data Format) with industry-standard electrical CAD systems, you can retrieve the design of your electronic components to create a complete digital mock-up of a PCB. 3D definition enables you to analyze the design to ensure the PCB fits within its mechanical environment. The interface also enables you to send pertinent information, such as board outlines and keep-out areas of spatial and technological constraints, back to the electrical CAD system.
