MENTOR´s VX platform – Xpedition - next generation of PCB design solution



The VX release of Xpedition is the most significant release of Mentor Graphics PCB in many years, delivering ground breaking innovations in PCB system design methodology, an unparalleled 3D PCB flow including models and library management, integrated SI/PI/Thermal, EMI and DFM analysis, comprehensive collaboration and electrical signoff technology and a design data management environment that sets new standards in engineering information management.

During this seminar you will get an overview of the best-in-class Xpedition design environment, a demonstration of the entire flow and a deep dive into the layout and design validation tools that help to best address design challenges of hand-held consumer electronics, high speed networking and general electronic design environments. You may also get the opportunity to experience the easy-to-use innovations like Sketch Routing for high speed interface routing and full 3D layout yourself.

During the seminar we will also introduce alternative groundbreaking PCB design solutions from Mentor Graphics. At the end of the day you should have found the perfect solution customized for you.

What You Will Learn

How Xpedition can change the way you develop, design and release products
