                                Ciiva Unveils New Intelligent Parts Data Analysis & Verification Technology at DesignCon 2016


                                Santa Clara, CA - 19, January 2016 — Ciiva will unveil brand new intelligent parts data analysis & verification technology for PCB design at DesignCon 2016, a premier conference and technology exhibition for electronic design engineers. This technology powers new tools for engineers to seamlessly transform design intent into realizable design with the latest advances in data automation and analysis. Engineers interested in trying out the new solutions available in this platform can register now for a free 15 day trial at

                                “The accepted norm in the electronics design industry for decades has been to fix mistakes before they go to manufacture.” said Leigh Gawne, Head of Ciiva. “We’re taking a new approach and asking, ‘how can we avoid mistakes in the first place?’”

                                Manufacturable BOM Every Time

                                With this new technology, Ciiva set out to accomplish one primary goal - to provide engineers with better data at design time to successfully produce manufacturable electronic designs. Together with new tools, this technology enables a designer to tap into the latest advances in data automation and analysis, and helps engineers to produce an error-free and sourceable Bill of Materials, complete parts data, and organized parts libraries. Ciiva is offering several new intelligent solutions to meet the unique needs of every engineer, including:

                                • CIIVA SMARTPARTS® Search that allows an engineer to make the most informed part selections with access to historical lifecycle data, real-time pricing and availability data, and verified alternatives for millions of components in the Ciiva parts database.

                                • CIIVA SMARTPARTS® Analysis that allows an engineer to streamline their supply chain sourcing with advanced BOM validation technology that analyses every part in a design to confirm correct part numbers, availability, and pricing.

                                • CIIVA SMARTPARTS® Management that allows an engineer to automate daily parts management tasks with advanced technology that automatically completes parametric data on components and keeps libraries organized and updated.

                                “As engineers we go to enormous lengths to ensure a successful PCB fabrication process, but we often don’t apply the same rigorous standards to our parts,” said Jason Hingston, CTO. “CIIVA SMARTPARTS® brings a new level of visibility to part selection, validation, and management that naturally lends itself to accurate part libraries, efficient part reuse, and ultimately a manufacturable BOM.”

                                Availability Details

                                The intelligent parts management solution from Ciiva is available at several pricing tiers and packages to meet the needs of every electronics designer. Engineers interested in enhancing their parts management process with intelligent parts management technology can register now for a free 15 day trial at Those in attendance at DesignCon 2016 can also get a hands-on demonstration of all the new Ciiva technology at booth 407.
