Mechanical - Electronics Design
Delivering a unified platform for electromechanical design.
It’s no secret that products today are increasingly complex with many, if not most, reliant on integrated electronics. It is critical that designers of both systems collaborate throughout the development process in order to prevent conflicts and ensure alignment between each system prior to design completion.
An efficient ECAD-MCAD co-design process enables you to eliminate costly electromechanical issues during new product development by giving a holistic view.
NX for Design
Mechanical - Electronics Design is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.
ELMA: Electrical Logical Mechanical Application
ELMA is a standalone lightweight visualization tool that augments ECAD-MCAD collaboration during design review, design iterations, and verification. ELMA can load ECAD schematic and layout files from all major vendors alongside JT files in a single environment. ELMA enables cross-probing and revision tracked mark-up between the ECAD and MCAD files. ELMA can also link to NX for full MCAD analysis. Mark-ups can be added at any time, and are automatically copied to all views and to the tree navigator, making them easier to preview and manage.
Integration with Mentor Graphics Capital Harness and Xpedition
NX unites electrical, mechanical and control systems in the only true multidisciplinary platform available in the market today. By linking the electrical schematics and the 3D model, called cross-probing, designers of wiring diagrams and harness configurations can work closely together to prevent costly and time-consuming rework due to errors.
