Customer Success Story Cicor Group
Increasing Test Coverage with XJTAG

XJTAG Supports Productivity and Process Improvement at Cicor

Cicor is known for highly complex PCBs and hybrid circuits. At Bronschhofen site, Cicor was able to increase test coverage for densely populated PCBs with introduction of XJTAG Boundary Scan. XJTAG's built-in tests and tools enable quickly start testing boards, find and repair defects, and fine-tune assembly processes to increase end-of-line yield.

inspectAR PCB Overlay Viewer
inspectAR PCB Overlay Viewer

Inspect, analyze, debug, rework and bring up with AR

inspectAR is an intelligent PCB viewer that displays the PCB together with the design data as an augmented reality overlay in real time. The live image of the PCB is captured via webcam or mobile phone. The software recognizes the PCB dimensions and compares the coordinates with the design. With inspectAR, enormous time can be saved when bring up prototypes, during troubleshooting and repair or in quality assurance.

Antennen Designer of the Year 2021
Sven Grunwald in the lab at TU Dresden

Dr.-Ing. Sven Grunwald wins the AWR Antenna Design Challenge

Dr.-Ing. Sven Grunwald, research associate at TU Dresden, is the winner of AWR Antenna Challenge and thus Antenna Designer of the Year 2021. His work stood out among the entries for its technical accuracy and detailed documentation. FlowCAD would like to thank all participants once again for their keen interest and submission of excellent work.

In-Design Analyse in PCB Editor
Simple as a spell checker

New kind of Design Rule Checks in PCB Editor

In-design Analysis can be used by any PCB designer as workflows in the PCB Editor of OrCAD/Allegro. The workflows help, similar to a spell checker, to quickly run standardized simulations in the background while routing. You get immediate feedback if a change makes the layout better or worse. At the earliest stage, better geometries can be created electrically and changes or redesigns late in the development process can be avoided.

Electrical Stress Analysis
New Audits in System Capture

System Capture has been expanded by Reliability Checks

The Cadence Release 2021 was released in January. It includes exciting new features for you to evaluate and to work with. System Capture has been expanded by various reliability checks for schematic audits or electrical and thermal stress analysis. You can get a first impression in the video. Our Support Team is happy to answer your questions.

Cadence Celsius Thermal Simulation
Transient electrical-thermal co-simulation

Thermal Simulation (Cadence Celsius)

Celsius Thermal Solver seamlessly integrates with Cadence IC, package, and Allegro PCB platforms. Fast and accurate parallel simulation enables new system analysis and design insights and empowers electrical design teams to detect and mitigate thermal issues early in the design process—reducing electronic system development iterations. Engineers can combine Cadence Celsius and Sigrity in an accurate electrical and thermal co-simulation (steady-state and transient) system-level thermal simulation for PCB and IC-Packaging based on the actual flow of electrical power.
