PCB and Schematic Variant Management

CADSTAR Variants Manager

Allowing you to manage all the variants of a design for multiple product and international requirements, including storing all information in a single Schematic and PCB design file, each with its own Bill of Materials (BOM).

As PCB designs become more sophisticated and the design cycles ever smaller, it is imperative that the PCB design can satisfy the global market place and the numerous product options.

No longer is it economical to design one PCB for one product and one market. One PCB must satisfy many markets, with different safety and environment requirements and many different product variations.

The CADSTAR Variant tool is designed to satisfy this requirement. It allows the designer to change any parts to match all the different product and international requirements, storing all the information in the single CADSTAR PCB or Schematic design file.
