    Malvern Instruments have benefited from CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite by enhancing data collaboration between ECAD and MCAD, and improving manufacturing data

    As Electronics engineers we often perceive the electronics design encapsulated in the PCB assembly to be the core of the product. At Malvern Instruments, however, that is not the case as their advanced instruments are primarily mechanical in nature so the electronics forms a critical, but secondary, element of the finished product.
