Zuken USA launches revolutionary electromechanical tool

(PRNewswire) In a significant move to bridge the gap between electronic and mechanical design, Zuken USA has announced Board Modeler: a CAD vendor-neutral, stand-alone solution that resolves electromechanical problems during the design flow by reducing design iterations between electrical and mechanical design departments, decreasing duplication of effort, and providing greater form and fit accuracy.

Board Modeler is the industry's first tool to provide engineers with a concurrent, collaborative floorplanning environment that can directly import and export information from schematics, PCB layouts, and mechanical design tools. Assembly accuracy is enhanced using Zuken's online component database, which contains over 5 million accurately detailed 3D components.

Developed for electronic products that continue to shrink in size while growing in complexity, Board Modeler has proven to be a huge success in Asia's fiercely competitive consumer electronics market.
