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.
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.
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.
