At the 53rd DAC, Concept Engineering is introducing a version of its Nlview family of automatic schematic generation products that runs inside a standard web browser.

NlviewJS is a schematic engine designed to support tools that run inside a web browser, and so run on practically any client computer or tablet, by implementing the visualization engine using Javascript and HTML. The engine incorporates interactive tools for design debugging, visualization, and design creation.

The core Nlview engine provides automatic generation of schematic diagrams for different levels of electronic circuits, including gate, RTL, and block level. Optional engines are available for the system level (S-engine) and for the transistor level (T-engine).

By using NlviewJS, developers can implement EDA tools that need schematic support within a browser-based app, remotely accessing design data, intellectual property (IP) library components, or system diagrams without having to install complex software on their computer or mobile device. By moving to a cloud-hosted infrastructure with web-based clients, users can be assured they are working with up-to-date design databases.

“Many of our customers in the electronic design automation, automotive and industrial markets have been asking for web-based capabilities,” said Gerhard Angst, CEO and president of Concept Engineering. “Flexible and quick access to centralized design data and visualization of live system status are challenges within larger organizations or for service engineers that work remotely. NlviewJS will help them overcome those challenges.”
