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 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.
