Because Design Force has an architecture which can flexibly handle a variety of design flows, you can construct the best flow for your design process.
In addition, it makes possible concurrent design with multiple designers, contributing to improved design efficiency, through concurrent design that suits the requirements of working on individual partitioned regions, objects such as chips, packages and boards, and combinations of both.
Another feature of Design Force is its open integration with external systems. CAD data, net lists, constraints etc. can be imported from other systems in standard formats, and ODB++ data from/to Design Force can be directly imported and exported. Standard APIs which make integration with information technologies such as PLM are also provided.
