A common question when dealing with PCBs is: How can I find out which component pin is part of which net? In this case, the PCB-Investigator provides you with five methods to get to an answer each crafted for a specific scenario while freely letting you choose your approach.
PCB-Investigator V 8.0 is now available!
Manage your components in your own library with 3D models?
Use the new features component editor and component library to do this!
Create optimized panels for fabrication?
Use Panel builder to create panels depending on your panel size...
PCB-Investigator V 7.0 is now available!
Beside ODB++, GenCad 1.4, Gerber 274x, DXF and many more data formats, a new import option for DPF files and also a new export option for Sieb and Meyer is now available.
The Bare Board Analysis (DRC) has been completely reworked and now offers a broad range of design rule checks with a dramatically increased performance.
The Bare Board Analysis (DRC) of PCB-Investigator has been completely reworked in the new Version 7 (coming soon!) and now offers a broad range of design rule checks with a dramatically increased performance.
PCB-Investigator Physics is the perfect tool to simulate the physical behaviour of your Printed Circuit Boards during development phase.
It enables you to find thermal hotspots, critical trace resistances and voltage drops that are too high, even before prototyping begins!
Save valuable time and prototype costs with PCBi-Physics!
In PCB-Investigator are many options and methods in the ribbon menu. This special menu can be change by “Customize Ribbon” button in the Start Tab (last button). We offer different menus for our Editions (Ultimate, Developer, Fabrication and Basic) and the options to change the menu individually.
Component Properties Dialog
With the V6 update the properties dialog was extended by a component image, an area for the component information and one for the package information.
If you connect your components with online material or documents (PDFs, Videos, webpages) you can use links to find your files/pages easily by double clicking.
Scripting is one of the most popular plugins of PCB-Investigator. With examples for beginners or more complex scripts to handle complete work processes, the download area is a good basis for creating own scripts.
Now with version 6 of PCB-Investigator you can add all scripts to favourite groups and start them directly from your menu without opening the script Dialog first.
Using floating licensing offers an easy and flexible way to share a limited amount of licenses among a larger number of users. After verifying the identity of the user and the availability of a license, the user can check out a license from the floating server to start the software. Up to this point you had to run and service the server yourself. This is where our new Software on Demand System comes into play.
PCB-Investigator's new Job Library is a very useful tool to find and organize your design data. In its "Favorites" list you can add your most important designs in the needed order and with a meaningful name.
Nevertheless all last opened designs are also stored in the "Recent" list, no matter which kind of file format was imported (ODB++, GenCad, IPC2581 and many more).
For working in teams, the Job Library also offers a recursive search for ODB++ designs on a shared team drive.
The new script engine offers an outstanding master plan to create, manage and use scripts to facilitate the daily workload of all users in all areas of application and helps saving time and money. True to the maxim “What doesn´t fit, will be made to fit” nearly all recurring tasks can be automated by a simple script to fulfill the needs of the respective user.
In today's blog, we show you how easy it is to find components, nets or attributes based on regular expressions as advanced search with PCB-Investigator.

EasyLogix is happy to attend eCarTec 2013 October 15th-17th 2013 at Messe Munich, the 5th International trade fair for electric mobility and instead of hybrid mobility.
Main topics are fair eCarTec electric vehicles, storage technologies, drive and engine technology and also energy, infrastructure and financing
The PCB-Investigatorstarts the next round – Integration of internationally established procedure IDF . Edit and comparing data is almost child's play. IDF serves as an interface to transform ODB++ data into any flexible ECAD system.
An accurate Design Revision Process is necessary to verify requirements for the production of a printed circuit board.
PCB Investigator helps you to take care of corresponding demands like functional or legal regulations to create successful products.
In the development of previous CAD systems for electronics design a two-dimensional layout of the PCB was enough to fulfill all tasks.
The new 3D-View feature of PCB-Investigator contains functions for a realistic representation (3D) of PCB components, signals and drills as a network.
Use the intelligent output of your PCB Design System and check the output before sending it to the manufacturer.
Going to the edge of production technologies needs more knowledge about PCB and Components. Use the many features we have implemented.
Getting PCB data in Gerber format from different tools or companies might cause a lot of rework.
Using more advanced formats like IPC 2581 or ODB++ reduces the cost to prepare the PCB data. Best would be to create appropriate packages for all the different tasks to get the finished product in short time.
