Whats New in Xpedition VX.2.6 – Multi-board Systems Design

In the first What’s New in Xpedition VX.2.6  blog post I announced the latest releases of Xpedition Layout and Xpedition Team Layout have been enhanced with a number of new features that improve product usability and efficiency. I’ll be sharing some of the new product highlights in several functional areas.

Lets start with some of the Multi-board Systems Design highlights!

Automation/scripting: Automation in System Designer can be used to add new objects, read properties and write reports. Custom rule checks can be used to minimize manual inspections. This also further extends Xpedition’s support for automation/scripting across the flow.

Interface control document: An interface control document (ICD) can be created or imported. An ICD is a structured definition of the interfaces between domains (e.g. electrical wiring). Using an ICD establishes a digital thread, streamlining change management and minimizing the chance of system-level errors.

If you’d like a preview of all the What’s New in Xpedition VX.2.6 videos, please feel free to check out the What’s New in Xpedition® VX.2.6 page. You can also take a quick 7 minute tour of Xpedition® Enterprise to get a great overview of all the functionality that Xpedition has to offer. Download the latest update from Support Center.
