CADCAM Group, starting on the 10th of October in Zagreb, then on the 11th of October in Ljubljana and then on the 13th of October in Belgrade, hosted lecturers from Mentor Graphics corporation, world leading company in electronic design automation. Experts from CADCAM Group, together with Mentor Graphics lecturers, presented PADS VX.2, software solution for printed circuit board design.
Daylong event was separated in few phases. Lectures started with presenting new features and functions in PADS VX.2 through live demonstration. Participants were through questions informed about things they were interested in and in that way they participated in creating demonstration of solution.
Next lecture was focused on introduction of electronics simulations used in development of printed circuit board. Participants were able to recognize that with usage of simulations they can reduce number of prototypes and in that way they can also reduce need for manual testing of their products.
Following lecture was focused on MECODES, software solution which connects electrical and mechanical design and in that way helps development of final mechatronics product.
In the last phase of lectures, software solution for thermal heating in electronics, was presented. Nowadays when products are smaller and more complex, it is not possible to ignore thermal heating. For that kind of problems, FloTHERM XT software solution was introduced. Using that solution, it is possible to simulate thermal heating in and around electronic product. It provides complete integration with software solutions for printed circuit board design.
