For an engineer trained in anything other than electrical/electronic engineering, designing schematics with their wires and cables and signal integrity issues can be a challenging task. Unfortunately, in these days of electromechanical engineering, a LOT of you are dealing with just such a challenge. After all, there’s mechanical in that electromechanical word. I feel your pain. Siemens does, too. That’s why they purchased an industry-leading electronic design automation company in 2017 – Mentor Graphics.
Mentor Graphics was founded in 1981 by three entrepreneurs, working on computer-aided engineering (CAE) efforts. In 2002, the company acquired Innoveda, adding wire harness design and printed circuit board design tools to their stable of products. The rest is history. Today, Mentor leads the field with industry-proven electrical design products that are used across the globe, from the smallest products to the world’s largest enterprises. Now, those products belong to Siemens, which has enhanced offerings with integrations to their world-class portfolio of products.
Solid Edge Wiring Design and Solid Edge Harness Design are two of these products. A dedicated solution for electrical design, these cutting-edge software tools help you overcome electromechanical design challenges. With them, you can design and simulate electrical systems, from simple electrical circuits to complex wire harnesses. You can route wiring and place components in 3D assembly models. You can even simulate circuitry performance, without waiting for hardware to become available for testing.
And now, you can access these tools through a simple credit card transaction. Solid Edge products can be purchased individually, or in a bundle through an affordable monthly subscription, which is billed annually.
Solid Edge Wiring & Harness Design On-Demand Training Library
To get you started, we provide a free 30-day trial of our on-demand training library, which includes short (5-7 minute) task-based videos, knowledge checks, chapter assessments and hands-on labs through a virtual lab platform. To sign up, simply click here to create a profile, then select Start Free Trial, and you’re on your way.
And, if you’d like to hear local experts discuss electromechanical design, sign up for our Providing Rapid & Intelligent Diagrams for Electrical Wiring Design live online seminar on Wednesday, January 29. During this seminar, we’ll demonstrate tools that enable you to create wiring diagrams, verify circuit behavior, and validate electrical integrity using Solid Edge Wiring Design. If this date isn’t convenient, you will be notified when a recorded version of the seminar becomes available.
