a reverse-engineering and netlist analyzing tool used for netlist
debugging and schematic visualization. It is designed to allow
Users to visualize their PCB netlists, IC netlists and to help them work with the schematic
data. It is also helpful for Users interested in transforming
existing netlists to popular schematic formats like Cadence's OrCAD
Capture, Mentor's DxDesigner, Altium Designer, etc.
allows intelligent schematic generation helping to
reverse-engineer an existing netlist and to simplify
testing/debugging process for a netlist with errors.
is easy to operate and is cost effective.
allows to generate intelligent schematics from netlists in a
matter of minutes.
existing Vendor symbols (OrCAD, PADS, Allegro HDL,
DxDesigner, EDIF, etc) while generating schematics.
uses industry standard formats such as EDIF, Verilog and EdaXML.
For Test plug-in
technology allows it to produce schematics in native formats of most leading EDA platforms.
The generated schematics can be saved to popular Vendor formats
like Cadence's OrCAD Capture, Mentor's DxDesigner, Altium
supplied with intelligent PDF Writer that allows to print
generated schematics to searchable Adobe PDF format with support
for signal tracing and hierarchy navigation in the created Adobe PDF files.
additional tools like Schematic Viewer, BOM generator,
Netlist comparator, Hierarchy flattener, Page Merger
has 4 major components:
Given an input PCB or IC netlist, the tool can generate a schematic from it.
A User can review generated schematic in the Viewer and then save it
to any format supported by E-studio
the most popular choice being OrCAD Capture, DxDesigner,
Altium Designer, EDIF 2 0 0, EDIF 3 0 0. The tool can automatically
generate default symbols or Users can use their own symbol libraries
from OrCAD, DxDesigner and other platforms. This component
automatically partitions generated schematic into pages of
user-defined dimensions. Both flat and hierarchical netlists are
can be used to view generated schematics and native databases. A
User can look at schematic pages and symbols (pan, zoom in,
zoom out), add markups (rectangle, polygon, path, free form, text
annotations), select objects and report on them.
2 EDIF netlists , it can compare them and give a User a report on the
2 0 0 netlist, EDIF 3 0 0 netlist, EdaXML netlist, Verilog gate
netlist are supported.
EDA Database Writers are additional. Native databases are supported
by special E-studio
plug-ins. The plug-ins allow to save generated schematics
to the popular Vendor formats including OrCAD Capture,
DxDesigner, Altium Designer, EDIF 2 0 0, etc.
PDF Writer plug-in : This plug-in can produce an
intelligent searchable Adobe PDF file from a schematic opened in the
Viewer or generated by
tool. The intelligent PDF schematic allows tracing of signals
between the pages and reporting on objects. Navigation through
hierarchy is supported in the PDF file as well. This plug-in can be
purchased in addition to E-studio
following functions are included with the E-studio
For Test tool:
Intelligent Schematic Generator that generates regular schematics
taking advantage of PCB and IC knowledge built into the netlists
Schematic Viewer with browsing/navigation, search and markup
- EDIF 2 0 0, EDIF
3 0 0, EDIF 4 0 0, Verilog gate netlist, XML netlist readers
Netlist and schematic flattener
merger to merge several schematic pages into one schematic page
browser that can be used to explore both schematics and netlists
one of those Netlist Readers is included with the standard
configuration of the tool.
