With PCB Matrix’s Symbol Viewer, users can correlate schematic symbols from Cadence Concept, OrCAD Capture, and Mentor DxDesigner, and the PCB Matrix Symbol Wizard, and match them against the PCB Matrix Land Pattern Wizard (footprint). The Symbol Viewer also can import a FPGA Compiler report from Altera and Xilinx, matching the pin map to the schematic symbols and land pattern. It enables users to extract a complete spreadsheet across multi-section schematic symbol sets.
The Schematic Symbol Viewer shows the actual signal names annotated to the Land Pattern, the pin types, the pin numbers and directions. The system can also cross probe between the spread sheet, schematic symbol, and PCB Land Pattern views. Errors or discrepancies can be highlighted, enabling engineers to find and isolate problems early in the engineering process.
