Key Capabilities

Browser-Based Access, Sharing, Comments, and Tasks

There’s no need to have additional ECAD software licenses to review schematics, PCB layouts, and BOMs. Project members can access design data through their favorite web browser on any device and measure, search, cross-probe, and comment on design files.

Streamline Design Review & Markup

Everyone can access the latest design iteration and review it at their convenience and location. Design markups and feedback are digitally captured and attached to the relevant design files, ensuring full traceability throughout your entire development lifecycle. Define the process for your design reviews with clear workflow steps and approvals, resolve issues, and track tasks without losing context.

BOM Portal

Create managed BOMs directly from your ECAD files to gain valuable part data insights and collaboration features and make better-informed decisions throughout your product’s lifecycle. Leverage enriched part and supply chain data, proactively mitigate supply chain risks, and simplify your BOM management.

Manufacturing Collaboration

Save time and avoid costly mistakes by sharing a version-controlled release package with your manufacturer in a single click. Manufacturers can view and comment on your output files from any browser with all the communications attached to the design.
