ADIVA - PCB Design Validation Tools

ADIVA Corporation... the advanced PCB Design Validation Software Solution

ADIVA Solutions - Industry Leader for over 25 Years

This capability to decrease time to market and save money by reducing revision spins has been validated by a recent Aberdeen Study which reports a $26,000 savings and 40 day reduction in time to market per design for companies using Design for Manufacturing Tools such as ADIVA. Using ADIVA on one design will pay back the money invested in the ADIVA Software Solution.

ADIVA's software allows you to view violations within seconds of starting ADIVA Design Review, even while additional checks are processing. Productivity is increased dramatically with the ADIVA Software Solution.

ADIVA's checks are table driven which make them easy to set up and maintain. You can have different validation tables for specific layers, groups of nets, and specified areas within a layer. As an example you could have one set of checks for inside the BGA areas and another set for outside the BGA areas with different values. This incredible flexibility provides the capability to check your design with ease and minimize false violations. Once you view a violation, you have the option to accept or correct the violation. If accepted, the violation will not appear on subsequent runs of the board. Violations in need of correction can easily be displayed back to the CAD system for quick repair.

CUSTOMERS: Oracle, Motorola, Lockheed Martin, IBM, Agilent, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, Juniper Networks and Cisco, are a few of the companies successfully using ADIVA tools.

ADIVA builds the board using the manufacturing data (not the design data) in software. This virtual board is then processed through the full range of Net List Compare, Design Rules Check (DRC), Design for Manufacturability (DFM), and also available AdivaView, our smart viewer.

PLATFORMS supported include Windows 7 thru 10 and RedHat Enterprise Linux. We use the same floating license configuration as most of the major design systems on the market today, Flexera FLEXLM.

INTERFACES are available for CAD systems by using extracted Gerber data, drill files, net lists and aperture lists. We have fully integrated our system into the Cadence, MentorZuken and Altium menus to automate the entire process as well as displaying any discrepancies that we find directly back into the CAD database.

ADIVA is also a member of the Cadence, Altium, Mentor and  Zuken worlwide partnership programs.

INSTALLATION is simple and easy. Our software tools come complete and ready to install. You don't need to spend money or time writing scripts or customizing the software to work at your site. All variable data including DRC and DFM checks are table driven and user configurable.

If you would like to send us your design data, we will run a benchmark and email the results back to you. If you are interested, just let us know which CAD system you are using - Cadence, Orcad, Altium, Mentor, PADS,  Zuken, etc.
