PCB design tools are usually reserved for PCB design engineers, but engineers in other fields such as hardware design, manufacturing, testing, and machinery also need to access, view, and analyze the packaged design and manufacturing data of the PCB and its integrated circuit (IC). Altair PollEx is currently one of the most comprehensive and integrated set of PCB design, view, analysis and verification tools on the market for electrical, electronics and manufacturing engineers.

Altair PollEx comes with a clean user interface, inbuilt hundreds of component libraries, supports for standard and custom symbol libraries, supports for component layout planning, supports for PCB data extracting, and has the ability to query, measure, find objects, and report a variety of things. It provides many measurement functions, including: measure the center of component, measure the distance between two points, measure the length of line or arc, measure the total network length, measure the length of selected network segment in routing network, and so on.

As an open solution, Altair PollEx features a powerful PCB modeler, a unified part editor, an easy-to-use PCB solver, and enhanced PCB validation and ECAD connectivity to seamlessly transfer data between different ECAD and simulation environments. In addition to providing unmatched connectivity to all relevant ECAD systems and formats, as well as third-party PCB simulation software, it also achieves Design for Excellence (DfX) through common applications and a powerful set of rule-based design checks that address post-design process constraints early in the design process.

// Key Features //

Feature Description
Unified Part Library Collaborate throughout product development with physical, logical, thermal, electrical, and assembly attribute data maintained in one place.
Early Design Simulation PollEx provides checks for signal integrity, power integrity, EMI vulnerability and ESD protection, verifying return path routing, balanced differential pairs, and other criteria.
Detailed Performance Analysis Achieve the performance and usability targets of today’s tightly packaged electronic devices with export to the engineering simulation across all disciplines.
Manufacturing Support Increase efficiency of PCB fabrication, assembly, and end-of-line testing, with the export of fabricating, mounting, paneling, and testing data to production line machinery.
Integrates with Existing Tools Pollex reads major ECAD file formats including: ODB++, IPC 2581, Gerber, Altium, Cadence, CADVANE, EAGLE, Mentor Graphics, PowerPCB, Zuken, and CAM350.
Part of a Broad Product Development Suite Take advantage of Altair Units to employ Altair solvers including OptiStruct, Radioss, and Feko, for detailed thermal, stress/vibration/drop, and EMI/EMC analysis.
