Fully scalable transmission program.
PanLink is used for the transmission of schematic and layout data between EDA systems from different manufacturers. Depending on the licensing, PanLink can be used as a transfer program for schematics and circuit symbols for circuit board data and component data and as a complete desgin transmission / transfer library. Similarly, a migration of E-CAD cable plans is possible.
With the internal data base of PanLink it is possible to change and to store the design data independent from the E-CAD system.
- Change of EDA System
- Unification of EDA systems (e.g. harmonization of different systems in case of mergers)
- Exchange of data when different EDA systems are used
- Maintenance and backup of old data
- Discontinuation of EDA systems and hardware platforms
- Exchange of component information (properties, components).
This is a special form of migration. The data are accurately transferred to a new system and at the same time the current library is accessed.
- Extraction of design information from the E-CAD data (e.g. net information on design rules)
- Data backup (Neutral Design DataBase – * .eda)
PanLink® helps to save the intellectual property of your company. It is one of the best scalable – flexible –innovative — migration tools available on the market.
PanLink – Editions
Thanks to the scalable PanLink software, various different applications can be covered. The required edition will be activated and configured with the license management.
PanLink® Schematic Migration
The PanLink software transfers the schematic data from a source system to a destination system. In the destination system the data can be freely processed.
PanLink® Layout Migration
The PanLink software transfers the circuit board data from a source system to a destination system. In the destination system the data can be freely processed.
PanLink® Schematic and Layout Design Migration
The PanLink software transfers the design data from a source system to a destination system. In the destination system the data can be freely processed.
PanLink® Schematic and Layout Library Migration
With PanLink software it is possible to transfer complete E-CAD libraries from a source system to a destination system. Because of the scalability, fundamental modifications can be conducted, e. g. all kind of attributes can be exchanged, deleted or completed. A new library can be generated, which can be used immediately.
PanLink® „Mixed“ Design Migration
The PanLink software can import E-CAD design data from different sources and transfer them to a destination system, e. g. the source schematic is Mentor Design Architect, the source layout is Cadence Allegro. Both source data are imported, synchronized and transferred to a third system, the destination system.
PanLink® E-CAD Cable Migration
E-CAD cable software applications are highly-specialized software packages for designing cable layout plans and switch cabinets. PanLink can import de cable layout plans and transfer them to a destination system.
