SOLIDWORKS PCB —powered by Altium®— is a mechatronics/electronics design solution that provides the best in PCB design technology with an integrated electro-mechanical collaboration solution.
SOLIDWORKS PCB delivers a powerful design solution that unites the electrical (ECAD) and mechanical (MCAD) worlds by facilitating streamlined collaboration between the two. Engineered specifically for collaboration with SolidWorks®, an electrical designer can export changes to the board design that are needed (and of value) by the mechanical designer. Conversely, the mechanical designer can float change proposals back to the electrical designer, who can then import those changes back into their design. Ultimately, this level of collaboration and integration brings harmony to the overall design process – a process that while traversing these two distinct parallel paths, ultimately delivers a single product to market.
And from the PCB design perspective, SOLIDWORKS PCB meets all of your expectations. With a streamlined interface built atop a powerful PCB Design engine, it provides the tools necessary to capture and layout your boards, and produce the manufacturing data with which to turn your ideas into physical reality. And all from within a single, powerful-yet-intuitive, unified design environment.
Why Choose SOLIDWORKS PCB?
SOLIDWORKS® PCB enables the productivity you need to design Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) quickly along with unique, collaboration between electrical and 3D mechanical design teams. It offers a clear advantage where ECAD-MCAD collaboration is critical for overall success of electronic product design.
