Zuken Announces System-level Electronics Design Environment

System Planner - For up-front planning and partitioning of electronics systems

System Planner - Press ImageSeptember 15, 2011 – Munich, Germany and Westford, MA, USA – Zuken today announces a new system-level design environment for up-front planning and partitioning of electronics systems, called  System Planner. This solution enables engineers to optimize form, fit and function of single and multi-board systems, maximizing design reuse and eliminating the need to reenter initial planning data into the design tools during detailed design. System Planner has been shown to reduce design throughput time by as much as 30% in companies who have adopted it in their design process.

"System Planner is a solution that can link our new product planning tasks together. It will save time and improve the connectivity of our data during circuit development, design reuse, layout and mechanical packaging," says Jerry Murray, PCB Design Team leader at Cummins Power Generation.

Zuken’s  System Planner is used at the beginning of the design process where requirements are implemented in practical product designs. This is the stage where a product is configured and crucial design decisions are made, such as how many boards are in the system and what functions are on each board. The user can simultaneously work on the tasks of BOM planning, functional planning, floor planning and space planning; steps that were once disconnected are now intelligently brought together in one view to optimize the product planning phase. System Planner feeds all of these details into Zuken’s schematic, PCB layout and manufacturing tools, saving time and effort throughout the entire design process.

System Planner Modules

System Planner’s four main modules work together or standalone, and may appear individually or simultaneously on the screen for real-time interaction with each other. When one view is changed, the others automatically update.

Data and Design Reuse

There are many ways to reuse data throughout the design process with System Planner. Design reuse can be employed from an existing library of reuse modules or by cutting and pasting design sections from existing known-good designs for use and/or modification in the current design, helping to save time and increase product quality.
