Exploring Add-on Tools in E3.series – Part 1

The highly intuitive E3.series software offers a number of add-on tools that will increase productivity while allowing collaboration between all engineering disciplines. Keep in mind that functionality will vary based on your own MCAD and PLM solutions and their versions. Let’s explore the add-on tools in E3.series and see what’s available.

Get to Know Your SPICEs

Since the first implementation of electronic simulation in the schematic capture software realm, circuit designers have been using SPICE for analog and digital “what-if analysis”. Engineering students adopted it for their studies and then continued using it throughout their careers. PCB designers typically have little or no experience with SPICE applications. No worries, follow along with me and get to know your SPICEs!

Understanding the Value of the Digital Twin

We’ve discussed two definitions of the Digital Twin here, and both of them are equally important. Having a Digital Twin as a complete digital representation of the product is useful for consistency across different organizations within the company. There is less confusion around what the final product should be. When the Digital Twin works with sensor data, simulations can provide valuable insight into potential future problems that a product may encounter. Both of these Digital Twin concepts are sure to enhance electrical and electronic design in the future.
