Graphic Board Compare - Find design changes

Plug-In category: Production, Data Management Plug-In included in: PCBI Fabrication, PCBI Developer, PCBI Ultimate

Change tracking between Layout Designer and Developer is an important element in the development process and would be unnecessarily time-consuming without professional help.

That is why we created the Graphic Board Compare Plug-in to filter changes made by the other party graphically.

The plug-in recognizes differences between two PCB data sets and shows the changes in a detailed list with color markings for a clear view or with two PCB-Investigator windows. It is possible to compare the whole board or just certain layers.

Since differences smaller than 5µm are not important in the manufacture, it is possible to filter them and accelerate the search.

An export of the results as TXT or RTF file is also available and helpful for your documentation.
