Power design tool equipped with new feature

10th June 2014


Texas Instruments (TI) has unveiled WEBENCH PCB Export, a new feature in its online WEBENCH Power Designer tool that engineers can use to quickly create a power supply printed circuit board (PCB) layout and export it to leading computer-aided design (CAD) development platforms.

A key challenge in power supply design is creation of the PCB layout. Design engineers have traditionally relied on application notes, manual copying of reference layouts and their own judgment to create board layouts. Unwanted noise and thermal problems can result from improper board layout and it can take multiple design iterations to achieve the best layout. Now, design engineers of industrial, automotive and communications equipment can use WEBENCH Power Designer to create their power supply design and the WEBENCH PCB Export feature to easily download the layout directly to five popular CAD tools.

“With the addition of PCB export capability to WEBENCH Power Designer, the engineer no longer needs to manually enter the design into the CAD platform, nor is there a need to worry about errors made in the process,” said Josh Moore, product marketing director for the Custom IC and PCB Group at Cadence. “Now, designs created with WEBENCH Power Designer easily and instantly download via WEBENCH PCB Export to Cadence Allegro platforms.”
