Valor to Feature Latest Software at PCB West

Sep 01, 2009

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA — September 2009 — Valor Computerized Systems, Inc., global provider of productivity improvement software across the printed circuit board design and manufacturing supply chain, announces that it will feature its Design for Manufacturability Software - Enterprise 3000 and its PCB Matrix Library Generation Software - LP Wizard and Symbol Wizard at the upcoming PCB West Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place September 15-16, 2009 at the Santa Clara Marriott in Santa Clara, CA.

Valor’s Design for manufacturability (DFM) system, Enterprise 3000, enables OEMs to create virtual prototypes of their Printed Circuit Boards and to check their designs for potential manufacturability issues concurrent with the design process. With Enterprise 3000, designs are optimized for both fabrication and assembly using a physical design model of the PCB. Revision spins are reduced significantly, and users benefit from faster time to market, lower development costs, and improved product quality.

The secret to the functionality of Enterprise 3000 is Valor-developed ODB++, the most intelligent format for data exchange. ODB++ consolidates CAD/EDA intelligence and the PCB manufacturing knowledge base into a single, open, expandable database. Vertical integration throughout the electronics interconnect industry is finally achieved, with ODB++ delivering a simple, yet intelligent and powerful bridge between design and manufacturing.

Valor’s PCB Matrix subsidiary has long recognized the need for automating the task of generating libraries for PCB design. The LP Wizard builds IPC 7351B compliant CAD library parts in a few minutes with unbelievable precision. Or create your personal rule file to build customized parts just as easily. Using component dimensions, an optimized land pattern is automatically generated by the LP Wizard and graphically displays the physical component superimposed on the lead-free land pattern with built in DRC checking. Creating complex parts with the numerous features required for CAD libraries no longer requires up to three hours of work. The software reduces the time required to build CAD libraries by up to 91 percent. Valor’s recently released Symbol Wizard adds the automation of custom schematic symbol models using advanced component Web search and links to deep, rich content, or extract data directly from PDF file datasheets.  Symbol Wizard is integrated with LP Wizard for cross-probing and verification error checking. Together, these tools significantly reduce the engineering product development cycle time, with reduced resources.

“Valor is pleased to be presenting our technology at the PCB Design Conference West 2009. In addition to our best in class design for manufacturing (DFM) software Enterprise 3000, we will be showcasing our PCB Matrix applications which add value to both the electrical engineer and PCB designer’s desktop,” said Dan Weitzman, President of the Americas.
