The Waveguide Design product provides customers with a complete set of tools to create, modify, analyze and manage physical designs of waveguide systems using industry standard conventions, terminology, and practices. The tools are focused on creating an intelligent waveguide layout that captures the design intent.
Intelligent waveguide design allows users to create and validate their designs more productively and, in addition, reuse the captured intelligence for downstream design processes.
The product supports the definition of waveguide configurations. This involves general layout tools for intelligent routing, placement of parts, and automatic placement of components. A full set of routing and parts placement methods allows users to choose the one that is right for a given situation. Specification driven design is available to ensure compliance with the project standard. Function driven design is used to ensure that the design intent is available for any modification scenario.
In addition, full capabilities are provided to quickly query design information and generate the appropriate report information. These design tools are provided via a highly intuitive and productive interface that allows the user to create, modify, and manage designs quickly.
The product includes comprehensive and flexible setup functions that provide a precise method of defining project standards and catalogs that get the users into production quickly. This product comes with a starter waveguide parts catalog based on the American National Standard Institute (ANSI).
Together with other products, Waveguide Design gives users the power to manage their waveguide systems from initial design to ship or plant operations in a completely flexible way.
