NEXTRA Multi Design PCB DesignIn NEXTRA Multi Design the user can design electrical systems, which contain multiple PCB designs. These designs can even be developed in different PCB Layout systems. One critical aspect is the collission detection, when two PCBs are located next to each other. Relocation of electrical parts can be done in either PCB, so a native import and export after moving the parts can save a lot of time in the design process. But also electrical shortages or EMI effects are visible in a combined view.
It is possible in NEXTRA to import multiple mCAD file formats as well as multiple eCAD file formats and have a combined view of the final product. It is possible to change the boundary, drill whole locations, component placements and routing within NEXTRA and export the data in the native format of the initial layout software. So after optimization the work flow continues in the regular CAD flow.
