Cadence Design Systems and Autodesk have linked their respective cloud-based PCB and mechanical design tools.
The companies have integrated Autodesk Fusion with Cadence’s Allegro X and OrCAD X platforms with the aim of providing bi-directional communication between PCB designers and mechanical engineers. The platform provides access to multiphysics analysis for power, thermal, and electromagnetics.
“Manufacturers need to bring more complex products to the market faster – all while juggling distributed teams, supply chain disruptions, and costs. This integration further extends Autodesk’s vision to connect end-to-end design-and-make processes in manufacturing,” said Jeff Kinder, executive vice president, Autodesk.
