Introduction to Mentor Graphics and PADS VX

Technical Session

Mentor Graphics, the world leader in PCB design, introduces ‘VX,’ the latest release of PADS. This presentation will discuss the effects of industry trends on individual PCB design professionals and introduce new PADS capabilities that can be used to overcome the design challenges of today and tomorrow.

Start Smarter with PADS

Technical Session

This session will demonstrate how PADS VX helps you achieve first-time success in electronic product design. It all begins with the library. Enter design information once and you’ll see it propagated, synchronized, and verified throughout the design flow, helping you meet increasingly tight design schedules. Through presentations and live demonstrations, we’ll show you how the new capabilities in PADS will help increase productivity and decrease costs.

Scalability and Future Technology

Technical Session

Mentor Graphics and the PADS engineering team are focused on delivering technology that will make you successful. This presentation will focus on the “advanced” technology available from Mentor if your process infrastructure changes. We’ll also show advancements in the PCB design process that are gaining a foothold, and technology that is currently development. Included in the presentation will be our plans for 3D PCB design.
