Instant access to your corporate component data through PDC helps increase your productivity, assisting you in locating and selecting the right parts for your project, whilst at the same time ensuring that you have the details you need to take account of company standards, or obsolete or out-of-stock parts.
Using a single source for data eliminates duplication of effort and minimises the risk of out-dated information being used. Supplier and pricing information can be maintained by your admin staff and is instantly available to your design team.
Product Cycle :
Access to database information through PDC is supported throughout the product cycle, from initial selection of components through to checking design consistency against the database and producing up-to-the-minute Bill Of Materials and other reports from 'current' information in the database.
No longer will you rely on manually updating your design data to reflect the latest corporate information, this can all be taken care of automatically at any stage in the design cycle.
Using industry-standard ODBC for connection to the data source, PDC can hook up to a wide range of manufacturing, engineering and corporate databases including Microsoft Access, Excel and SQL Server, MySQL, IBM, and even text and comma-separated (CSV) files.
If you are already using databases through other EDA products, for example using OrCAD CIS, you should be able to connect PDC in the same way to your existing database in minutes.
