By Kanchan Vaidya

Do you often struggle when managing a complex schematic design? Take a look at some basic tips and tricks that are life savers for design engineers.

When it comes to ease of use, a few tips can go a long way. PADS Designer includes convenient features that you might not know about. For example, there is a ‘My parts’ window that lists all your favorite parts so that you don’t have to search for that terminator resistor every time you need it. Simple mouse-stroke commands enable easy board viewing and multiple net hookup. Another great example is the color-by-net feature that makes it easy to identify the nets you are concerned about from among a large number of nets on the sheet.

Take a look at this web seminar that goes into the details of streamlining schematic capture design for a more-efficient design process.
