EMA Design Automation Adds Bi-Directional Interface Between OrCAD and Arena's PLM
Aug 4 15
EMA Design Automation announced that Cadence® OrCAD® PCB (printed circuit board) design tools and the Arena cloud-based PLM system are now more comprehensively integrated. This new integration enables two-way communication between the two databases to ensure data integrity by eliminating manual processes. As a result, end-users can upload a BOM (bill of materials) directly into the Arena PLM system. An automatic upload directly from the OrCAD environment ensures that the BOM is correctly formatted and contains all required content, all without ever having to leave their native CAD environment or deal with any formatting or data translation issues. Conversely, the people managing the PLM system can be assured of the BOM's correct content and upload with no effort on their part. This ability not only reduces the time required to perform the task, but also reduces human error. Other new capabilities stemming from this integration streamline component management. For instance, a commonly used function in PLM is 'where-used', which performs a search to determine where a component is used across all products. This new integration provides the engineering team with the ability to find other projects or designs that use a specific part. This is particularly useful when a part becomes obsolete or fails at an abnormal rate. Another potential source of problems stems from correctly and efficiently applying part numbers to temporary or new parts. OrCAD Component Information Portal (CIP) already provides an effective new part introduction process. This new integration works in conjunction with the Arena PLM system to allow authorized users to automatically assign the next available Arena part number to new parts, eliminating a previously manual and error prone process. The prior integration brought engineering data from Arena's cloud PLM system to the OrCAD Component Information System (CIS) database and also enabled temporary part sourcing and creation within the two systems.
EMA Design Automation and Arena Solutions Form Strategic Alliance Yielding a Tighter Integration
Jan 27 15
EMA Design Automation and Arena Solutions announced that they have formed a strategic alliance combining Arena PLM with EMA's data management solution for Cadence OrCAD to improve the overall user experience. The OrCAD and Arena integration provides a number of benefits for organizations using both systems. Components from the enterprise PLM system are available directly within the OrCAD Capture CIS design environment making search, selection, and placement very simple. Parts listed as obsolete in the PLM system can be easily identified and swapped out in an OrCAD design. All parts added to a design are assured to be approved and preferred components. With a complete design containing accurate component information, OrCAD users can create zero touch BOMs because all required component information comes directly from their enterprise PLM system. Finally these BOMs are easily imported into Arena PLM for sharing with the rest of the organization.
EMA Design Automation Announces TimingDesigner 9.4
Apr 9 14
EMA Design Automation announced TimingDesigner 9.4, which is tightly integrated with the Cadence® Allegro® Sigrity™ SI solution to provide a unique, highly-automated timing closure environment for DDRx interface design and sign-off. One of the larger challenges with DDRx design is the amount of data that needs to be analyzed to ensure a working system. Thousands of measurements must be taken by the simulation tool to help the designer qualify their interface. The majority of these measurements are relational in nature and require an understanding of all the signals involved to properly confirm that the requirement being measured has passed. Without proper context it can be very difficult to fully understand the implications of the simulation results and their effects on system timing. Competitive simulation environments only provide the designer with a large spreadsheet consisting of a massive amount of data but no context with which to assess compliance or document timing closure. TimingDesigner is able to bring the Sigrity power-aware analysis data sets into context using timing diagrams to display the data in a visual format. The design team can then quickly, and with a high degree of confidence, identify potential problems in context and even make on-the-fly adjustments in TimingDesigner to test potential solutions before re-simulating or making a change in implementation. Upon signoff, TimingDesigner provides DDRx interface documentation showing the timing margin between all critical interface signals.
