Perception Software Partners with Siemens

17 Mar, 2008

EDAConnect will integrate with Teamcenter PLM portfolio to provide enterprise data during the product-design cycle.

Perception Software has reached an agreement with Siemens PLM Software to integrate Perception's EDAConnect family of products into Siemens' Teamcenter product lifecycle management (PLM) software portfolio.

As part of the agreement, Perception Software will sell and support EDAConnect integrated directly into Teamcenter as a Siemens Solution Program PLM Software Partner. The product will be marketed as EDAConnect-Teamcenter.

The EDAConnect-Teamcenter product family will include the following:

  • EDAConnect-PCB for integrating electronic systems design tools from Cadence Design Systems, Mentor Graphics, Zuken, and other EDA tool vendors

  • EDAConnect-SiP for integrating system-in-package tools from Cadence

  • EDAConnect-ADW for integrating Cadence's Allegro Design Workbench
The EDAConnect-Teamcenter family of products reportedly will provide electronic engineers and designers with relevant enterprise data during the product-design cycle. Using EDAConnect-Teamcenter, engineers will spend more time designing and less time searching for data or performing administrative tasks, according to the companies.

"The welcome addition of Perception Software to our partnership program further expands the ability for our Teamcenter customers to select from a broad spectrum of high-quality solutions," said Steve Bashada, vice-president of Teamcenter Applications, Siemens PLM software.
