SCHEMATIC Design

First, we build a custom component library based on existing symbols, and when necessary, we design new symbols. Using the library, we design the electronic schema. Schematic symbols are created as per the IEEE standards.

Our specialized abilities:

  • Convert schematic designs between different ECAD software platforms.
  • Reverse engineer schematic designs from completed electronic devices.
  • Rapidly create a digital schematic design based on sketches made on paper.

Our design tools

We build our electronic schematic designs and block diagram designs with the ECAD software tools:

  • OrCAD schematic capture    V 17.4 
  • Altium schematic capture     V 22.9
  • Mentor schematic capture    VX2.10 

 Testing the designs  

  • Quartus/ModelSim - Simulate and analyze our digital designs
  • Pspice/Synopsys - Optimize and verify our analog circuit designs 
  • Ansys/Keysight ADS - Additional simulation tools are for DVT (Design Validation Test).

SI/PI Analysing

We provide clients with advanced signal and power integrity solutions throughout all project phases: design, simulation, testing, measurement, and optimization.

The different types of analyses. 

  • Pre-layout phase is used to test the feasibility of the designs.
  • Post-layout analysis is used to ensure electronic constraints at both card-level and system-level.

Signal integrity capabilities

  • High speed/match and propagation delay analysis
  • Crosstalk analysis and layout design inspection
  • Placement optimization of serial and ended resistors
  • Noise, distortion, and signal loss effects the reduction

The tools we use:
