Xpedition® xDM Library provides a central library to manage all aspects of the logical to physical part data required in complex PCB systems. The central library brings together the symbol (logical view), cell (physical geometry), padstack and logical to physical pin mapping (part data), providing a central cockpit for part management.
The xDM Library solution is scalable, supporting lower end requirements for smaller companies, up to more complete and complex requirements incorporating full component management.
By bringing information together from across the enterprise within xDM Library, designers can reduce part research time by considering information such as technical parameters, obsolescence, cost, and availability up front during part selection. Also incorporating the use of preferred parts and preferred vendors up front results in fewer new part introductions saving significant money for your company.
