New HP EEsof to PADS Power PCB Translator!
Artwork Conversion has released a new translator for converting
layout information created by HP EEsof into PCB layout information
for PADS Power PCB.
This new translator reads the Series IV/ADS mask file format (an internal format used just prior to artwork generation) and converts it into a PADS ASCII file format that can be imported directly into PADS.
This translator works with both PADS Power PCB version 2.0 and 2.1 although we recommend 2.1 because it supports a much larger number of
vertices per boundary that the 2.0 version.
Each microwave polylgon is converted to a copper pour polygon in PADS -
Empty figures in the microwave are converted to copper cut polygons
Microwave layouts done in Series IV/ADS can be dropped into an existing PCB design.
Price and Delivery
MSK2PADS runs on Windows 95/NT and costs $1500 for a single user license or $2000 for a network floating license that can be used throughout a single site.
