EFE Uses Protel 2004


March 2, 2012

Horsham, PA — Kip Anthony, Vice President of Marketing for EFE Laboratories, Inc., announced today that they have recently added Altium DXP and Protel 2004 to their engineering design and manufacturing capability. “Protel,” said Mr. Anthony, “features powerful design capture capabilities that integrate schematic entry for both FPGA and board level design, support for VHDL based design, mixed-signal circuit simulation, and post-layout signal integrity analysis. Addition of software like Protel, ensures that EFE offers its customers the latest technology in design and manufacturing services.”

Protel 2004’s schematic editor provides full support for designs that contain repeated blocks of circuitry. Unlike other systems that simply copy and paste sheets to create multiple channels, Protel maintains channel hierarchy throughout the design process, which allows a user to change all channels with a single edit. Steve Berry, EFE’s Engineering Manager, stated, ” Equally important, Protel 2004 comes with a new generation circuit board CAM system called CAMtastic. This is a complete CAM verification and editing system that bridges the gap between PCB design and manufacturing. It allows both board designers and fabrication engineers to verify critical manufacturing information quickly and easily. In turn, this ensures that the designs are fault-free and completely ready for fabrication.”

Altium is a leading global developer and supplier of desktop electronic design automation (EDA) and embedded software design tools for the Microsoft Windows environment. Altium products offer tailored solutions covering a range of hardware and software design processes. For more information about Altium and Protel, visit:www.altium.com/protel
