CAD / CAE / EDA Information

CAD (Computer Aided Drawing), CAE (Computer Aided Engineering), and EDA (Electronic Design Automation) are important tools for electronics engineering and embedded systems development, helping us visualize, specify, and document our designs.

  • IntelliCAD

    IntelliCAD is a powerful CAD software that is used by professionals in over 80 countries to create mission critical drawings in a cost effective manner. You don't have to learn a brand new interface if you are familiar with the Windows environment and other popular CAD systems such as AutoCAD, since IntelliCAD uses most of the same keystrokes and commands.
