Texas Instrument recently announced WEBENCH PCB Export. This designer tool—one of several tools offered by TI—allows engineers to quickly create a PCB layout and export it as a CAD file.
Benefits of using WEBENCH include:
- Easily create a PCB layout for your power supply design using the sound layout principles provided by WEBENCH Power Designer to reduce noise and thermal issues.
- Incorporate component footprints into the WEBENCH design automatically.
- Export the layout to industry-leading CAD development platforms, such as Altium Designer, Cadence Allegro, CadSoft EAGLE, Mentor Graphics PADS and DesignSpark PCB.
The official report states:
“Until today, design engineers relied on application notes, manual copying of reference layouts and their own judgment to create board layouts. Now, design engineers of industrial, automotive and communications equipment can use WEBENCH Power Designer to create their power supply design and the WEBENCH PCB Export feature to easily download the layout directly to five popular CAD tools.”
