Texas Instruments Incorporated unveiled WEBENCH® Schematic Export, a new online tool that exports analog designs from TI's WEBENCH Design Center to industry-leading computer-aided design (CAD) development platforms from Cadence Design Systems, Inc., Mentor Graphics and Altium.
Engineers worldwide have used TI's award-winning WEBENCH tools to quickly create more than two million designs cost-free since its introduction by National Semiconductor in 1999. While the tools dramatically simplified and sped the design process, the time for engineers to export a design to their licensed CAD development platform was tedious and time-consuming. Developed by TI, and in cooperation with the makers of the CAD development platforms, WEBENCH Schematic Export now enables the engineer to instantly export these dynamically created power and LED lighting designs to a variety of platforms, such as Cadence OrCAD Capture CIS, Mentor Graphics DxDesigner and Altium formats such as Altium Designer.

A designer can quickly optimize and export a power supply design created with TI's WEBENCH Power or LED Designer or a complete power supply system created with WEBENCH Power or LED Architect via WEBENCH Schematic Export to one of five CAD development platforms.
Design performance can be simulated in WEBENCH Designer and Architect prior to export.
WEBENCH Schematic Export is supported with schematic symbols for more than 30,000 components.
