A New Way to Design Electronic Products
“Our mechanical designers always have the most up-to-date ECAD files whenever they need them. I can push the latest design changes directly to their MCAD tool."
Discover how YASA Ltd., a British automotive and aerospace manufacturing firm, improved their MCAD/ECAD collaboration using Altium 365 and Altium CoDesigner.
Britain's YASA Ltd. is a manufacturer that specialises in electric motors, controllers and powertrain solutions for hybrid and pure electric automotive applications. Working in partnership with OEM customers to create custom solutions to meet their precise electric powertrain requirements.
The demand for hybrid and electric automobiles, combined with a renewed interest in greener aviation solutions, ensures that YASA’s engineering team keeps innovating. YASA has always invested in remote working tools and during the pandemic the full value of those investments became apparent, allowing their design teams to continue to collaborate seamlessly despite the challenges that lockdown brought.
A Better Way to Work Together
With Altium’s CoDesigner, electrical and mechanical engineers can communicate directly while working in their own respective design environments, pushing and reviewing changes bi-directionally in real time. Data is automatically transferred back and forth between MCAD and ECAD systems, saving time on every project—something Paul Spendley, Senior Electronic Engineer at YASA, can personally attest to.
“Our mechanical designers always have the most up-to-date ECAD files whenever they need them. I can push the latest design changes directly to their MCAD tool,” Spendley concludes.
