Traditional concepts of an electronics design system haven't changed much, at least for most EDA vendors. This can be apparent in the way they struggle to meet even the current challenges. The fragmented approach of trying to glue separate solutions together eventually breaks down as more challenges are thrown at them. It's just unsustainable and difficult to innovate on top of inconsistent design applications that rely on constantly unmatched data exchanges. That's not how AutoTRAX is designed.
DEX-PCB has been designed from the ground up as a powerful, single-application electronics development environment that contains all the advanced design tools you'll need to capture and simulate hardware, design PCBs, collaborate with MCAD, manage your ECAD data and documentation, as well as manage your designs from concept to production. It's all there in a single, unified design platform.
DEX-PCB also unifies your design data, from component models to sub-assemblies. Unlike conventional design systems based on a collection of linked tool applications, the AutoTRAX unified platform allows each design application to access and modify a single, centralized model of the design data. That's one design project; one model of the design data; one development environment, visible to everyone. With this unified and coherent source of design data being available to all the design applications at the platform level, design synchronization and data management becomes a simple process.
