FloWare is offered to increase the productivity of a PCB design process around Cadence PCB tools. With CAD-FlowManager workflows and data is managed, whereas FloWare Modules are embedded apps insice PCB Editor. FlowCAD offers a selection of functions as FloWare modules which were created to meet the specific needs inside OrCAD or Allegro PCB Editor. If you need additional functionality, which is not on Cadence' roadmap, the FlowCAD team can program customized functions to meet your specific productivity needs. Installation is flawless and menu structures are automatically recognized by PCB Editor and shown in the tool bar.
The installation of the additional FloWare modules is very simple and platform independent. The menu structures are automatically recognized by PCB Editor and displayed in the menu bar.
FloWare is a cost option. You can choose one or more modules according to your needs to test with Free Trial. Downloading FloWare Release will not work without license. License is distributed by e-mail and is valid for the site of your company location.
CAD-FlowManager provides an environment, flexibly adapted to existing company processes, for small and medium design teams to standardize and automate design workflows. Automatic notifications via emails and to-do lists indicate tasks to be processed. Users are assigned to function groups (roles) to make data accessible to colleagues with the same roles when sick or on vacation. The application and approval flow can be configured beyond departments to reflect company operations.
FloWare Modules are part of a toolbox to enhance productivity for OrCAD PCB Editor and Allegro PCB Editor.
These modules are made to increase efficiency for specific tasks, which might not be used by all customers in a standard flow.
FloWare offers solutions for additional checks, manufacturing options, added SI features, documentation, and more.
Menu structures are automatically recognized by PCB Editor and shown in the tool bar.
FloWare module descriptions
When switching from a simple or discontinued PCB tool to Cadence's PCB tools (OrCAD / Allegro), design data is often migrated. FlowCAD has developed various converters for this purpose and can offer library and project data migration as a service.

With only a few specifications for minimum land widths, minimum distances and offsets the PCB designer can define masks for digital solder resist. Different modes cover all currently known use cases and help to output corresponding manufacturing documents.
Stretch Flex PCB makes it possible to adapt routed PCBs so that they meet the requirements for stretchable circuit carriers and the copper lines do not break on stretchable material. All the necessary parameters for a wide range of applications can be set and applied to the routing.
Convoluted mesh of wires on the outer layers of the PCB are often required for Hardware Security Modules (HSM). Anti Tamper Mesh PCB interactively creates meshes, which have the main purpose to actively detect and respond to external attacks.
