Design Architect

Categories: Board Station

The Design Architect tool provides the most comprehensive technology available for Schematic capture and hierarchical design. You will examine every step of the schematic process in lectures; including hierarchical schematic capture, symbol creation and design viewpoint generation as well as library data management. Lab exercises are designed to give you hands-on experience and reinforce the design process steps covered in the lecture. View course details ↓
