EMA Automates Symbol Generation With New App for OrCAD Capture

Any design engineer, hardware engineer, or librarian can get immediate time savings
using the SymbolGen app to automate PDF datasheet extraction

Rochester, NY (November 30, 2011) – EMA Design Automation™ ( www.ema-eda.com), a full-service provider of mechanical and electrical CAD tools, today announced the release of SymbolGen – an app that automates the extraction of complex PDF tables, including BGA and SOIC maps, cutting time down to a fraction and eliminating errors normally seen in a manual entry approach. “Symbol creation is a constant challenge for circuit designers,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “Today’s complex schematic symbols have upwards of 2,000 pins or more and can take a significant amount of time to create. If you consider a design requiring a number of new symbols, this app can turn a week’s worth of effort into a day.”

SymbolGen automates the extraction and correlation of complex PDF tables and diagrams, which are often split over multiple PDF pages. Reusable PDF templates can be created giving intelligent meanings to the extracted content, including pin name, pin number, pin direction, and bank name.

Automation utilities exist to quickly format multi-processor and multi-function pin definitions. Duplicate pin numbers, invalid pin direction codes, and other common datasheet or data entry inconsistencies can be easily identified and corrected, up front in the design process. SymbolGen saves more time with large, complex symbols, but even moderate sized parts can be done more easily, quickly, and with fewer errors.

SymbolGen is just one of the apps available inside the Cadence® Design Systems OrCAD® Capture Marketplace. This marketplace includes a store where OrCAD users worldwide can download free and paid apps to add functionality and customize their OrCAD products.

SymbolGen is available from the OrCAD Capture Marketplace for $999 (single user license).
