Course details

Become more productive when drawing schematics in DxDesigner.  In this course, Mentor’s expert instructors teach you how to use all aspects of DxDesigner, from initiating a project all the way to packaging in order to forward to layout in Expedition PCB.

What you'll learn

Lecture/demonstration discussions will be followed by hands-on lab experiences to reinforce knowledge gained from the lecture material. The course steps you through using DxDesigner on real designs:

  • Setting up a project
    Learn how to create a new project, use templates, and modify the settings to customize your design.
  • Placing components
    Learn how to use DxDataBook to efficiently find, place, and replace components on your board.
  • Creating connections
    Learn how to quickly add nets, buses, special components, and links to your board.
  • Best schematic design techniques
    Learn how to take advantage of the power user features, such as finding/replacing text, manipulating nets, and using the command line.
  • Using hierarchical design
    Learn how to implement the bottom-up process and top-down process hierarchy—advantageous for complex board drawings.
  • Creating symbols
    Learn how to use the powerful symbol editor to meet your complex component requirements.
  • Taking advantage of design reuse
    Learn how to implement design reuse by eliminating wasted effort replicating common circuit modules.
  • Verifying drawings
    Learn how to use DxDesigner’s powerful diagnostics, live verification, and graphical rules checker to ensure professional and accurate drawings.
  • Packaging and forwarding to layout
    Learn how to package using our built in application so that inconsistencies are properly handled before forwarding to layout.
  • Documenting a schematic
    Learn how to generate a BOM, generate a PDF, and archive a project.
