Product

Our easy-to-use inspection has been proven effective during an extensive pilot in detecting errors in electrical schematics at an early stage of the process. In over 65% of the inspected schematics, CADY’s system detected significant errors. 86% of our users are recurring.

Currently our system inspects electrical schematics. In the future, we plan to add another product for inspecting layout files.

Our system uses unique proprietary algorithms to automatically read and understand electrical components’ datasheets. That enables a much more comprehensive inspection compared to the DRC tools, and the inspection is fully automatic inspection and requires no manual insertion of data by the user except for the design files.

We cover a wide range of errors, relating to issues like connection instructions, voltages, logical levels and many more.

We are platform-agnostic and support all the leading CAD software: Mentor, Cadence, Altium. Zuken, Autodesk.

Among the supported Netlist formats are Quick View Connections (*.qcv) and OrCAD netlist (.dat). Contact us if you require support for an additional software.

The inspection run-time ranges from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the complexity of the design.

The report is very concise, hence reviewing it should take up to 30 minutes.

The required input is only the Netlist and BOM files. Since we perform automatic reading and comprehending of datasheets, there is no need for any manual insertion of data by the user.

If you have a confidential design or are not currently working on one, you can still experience CADY’s capabilities through its Demo Mode.

Technology

No! The system adjusts for your specific formats and conventions after a quick on-boarding process.

The overall accuracy of our automatic datasheet parsing algorithms is 85. Naturally, our system is continuously improving, based on users feedback via our interactive reports.

If we don’t have a datasheet or we’re unable to automatically read it (a.k.a. an unsupported component), the inspection of the rest of the circuit still runs smoothly and provides exceptional value.

The report indicates which active components were inspected. This allows the user to know which parts of his/her circuit were inspected.

Currently we are a stand-alone tool which does not require integration with the CAD software. Back-Annotations will be added in the future.

The output of the inspection is an instantly available interactive HTML report, which can also be downloaded.

Yes! We offer optional user-defined rules that can be selected or unselected in the Configuration page. Contact us if you have additional guidelines you would like us to implement.

Our solution is relevant to all circuits, but it has higher values in circuits that contain a significant digital part.

Since checking software or HDL is out of our scope, we don’t attempt to determine the actual used configuration. Instead, we parse from the datasheet all of the available options. If any of these options creates a valid circuit, we don’t alert (since if there is a problem it is not in the schematics). If none are valid, we will alert.

Multi-board inspection will be supported during Q3, 2023.
