    visEDATA Beta 2 now available for PADS 9.5


      To all current & potential visEDATA Beta users, there is now a new download available that is compatiable with PADS 9.5


      Just visit the following visEDATA Beta web site http://www.mentorpcb-beta.com/index.php to login or register your interest.


      As a reminder of the capabilities & benefits:


      visEDATA is a new application for design archive management and review that enables users to automatically create, name, store, search, and retrieve snapshots of design data (Archives) from a Vault through user-defined templates.


      Automated archive creation and naming provide inherent cost and time savings. Archives can be viewed graphically before choosing to restore them to a working project database, while at the same time generating multiple design reports and adding redline/markup comments that capture accurate feedback during review.


      visEDATA significantly reduces the risk of selecting an incorrect project to restore when commencing a new project from existing data; this minimizes the potential for additional rework, with its associated costs.


      Target Audience


      1. All PADS 9.4/9.5 flow customers (Windows only)
      2. Individual users and small workgroups who want to easily manage & review their archive (design snapshot) database without the overhead of a complex PDM system.


      Key Benefits


      1. Reduces the overhead of manual backup creation
        • Saves time and effort through use of an integrated and efficient method of automatically creating and restoring archives within a vault that is transparent to the user.
      2. Searches on Archive names and user-defined descriptions
        • Quickly and easily searches the content of the vault to identify the archive to be restored or compared against, which significantly reduces the risk of error when reworking or starting a new project from existing design data.
      3. Provides graphical review and report of project data
        • Reduces costs by eliminating the need to consume licenses of the authoring tools.
      4. Compares different Archives across multiple projects
        • Easily determines the differences between any archive in any project.
      5. Provides redline and markup of schematic and PCB designs
        • Ensures that exact design review intent is accurately captured, available, and traceable during later reviews.
