Welcome to PCB-Investigator
Benefit as developer – both in HW and SW development – from PCB-Investigator’s various features ranging from basic functions to helpful analyses.
Concerning EMC and Hazard Analysis PCB-Investigator supports you with automated length and distance calculations and visualizes the results both as text and graphically. Like that, unnecessary disturbances in the end product can be avoided easily.
Change tracking, which is is especially helpful in your communication with designers, is integrated efficiently with both a net and a component based Compare Plug-In.
A detailed and accurate documentation of all relevant data - with our Design Report Plug-In - in combination with the Embedded Function avoids expensive misunderstandings.
In the assembly, a variety of possibilities for simplifying your workflow can be found in PCB-Investigator:
Prepare test adapter data for a Testpoint analysis or avoid any possibility of problems in fabrication with a Component and Tombstone Check. PCB-Investigator offers the matching solution for any requirement.
In the assembly SolidWorks is another important tool, that can be connected easily with PCBI via an export and import function: PCB-Investigator even replaces simulated components independently with real SolidWorks parts after exporting.
Pick&Place is a common procedure in assembly and is supported by PCB-Investigator as well, no matter whether it comes to Pick&Place data creation or data base generation.
PCB-Investigator can support or even take work sequences in PCB Fabrication as well.
As en excellent Viewing Tool it highlights important information for any upcoming task like showing hotspots in order to avoid errors and rejects. Another strength of PCB-Investigator is the DFM area: With a wide-ranging Bare Board Analysis (DRC) or by preparing PCB data as high resolution black-white graphics for the AOI, PCB-Investigator helps avoiding costly and time-consuming remanufactures in the first place.
Panel Building for prototype or serial production is another important step. PCB-Investigator can support you optimally with the Panel Builder Plug-In.

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.
