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.
