Ten quick reasons to use circuit tree in your next embedded PCB board design

1. Save Design Time and Cost by quickly creating automatic schematic and pcb placement design with any of the 1000 processors or micro-controllers. We dont store any circuit board designs and all design are auto generated on the fly. Get the most intelligent component placement recommendation for the board.

6. Large peripheral library along with growing list of components. Change components on the fly for the design and get a new design created in 60 seconds.


 

7. Assured quality. We go the extra mile to ensure that the designs generated are correct.

 


 

8. We value your Privacy. We don’t sell personal information to another site.


 

9. Growing Artificial Design Engine that grows with every user interaction and part addition in library. artificial-intelligence-in-embedded-pcb-design


 

10. Site has been created by engineers for engineers.


 

Short Introduction to Circuit tree

Circuit tree is a circuit board design software application having intelligence of a hardware engineer to create embedded circuit board designs. It features more than 1000+ processors and controllers along with extended hardware peripheral library.

Real time BOM cost through Octopart

We are happy to announce that we are using octopart to fetch cost of the bill of material in real time. The way it works is

  1. After you build design schematic the unit cost of the circuit tree selected part is fetched from octopart.
  2. The unit cost is found from the list of the vendor options in octopart to provide the lowest cost option to the user. The minimum order quantity which is closest to the order quantity is also selected.
  3. The ordering link is provided in the Bill of material excel sheet for you to order from.
  4. The total cost of the bill of material for each components is calculated for the quantity and provided in the excel sheet.

This is a great option as it helps your design by:

  1. Estimating the cost of his bill of material before starting with a design.
  2. Change part in circuit tree requirement editor in real time to reduce cost of the bill of material.
  3. By helping to reduce obsolescence issues and component procurement issues.

Pain Points for Electronic Engineers

Few years back element14 conducted a survey to find the paint points which a electronic engineer faces. It is a interesting read available at :

Element14 survey results

Well it is not surprising that the pain points presented in few years old study are still valid today. Here are the summary of these:

  1. Initial design stages (before prototype assembly and testing) typically require the most time and effort to gather all the necessary information.
  2. There’s never enough time to properly utilize every relevant source.
  3. Incomplete information is common across relevant sources.
  4. Managing customer and vendor relations throughout the design process can be complicated, consuming even more time and resources.

At circuit tree we are trying to solve these pain points . Circuit tree is completely automated and auto-generates for your embedded circuit board designs

  1. Build design schematic design in Eagle and Altium
  2. Real Time Bom cost with octopart.
  3. Integrated footprints

The application is completely automated and one stop for all the information you may need. It has been designed to  provide a reliable designs and helps you jump start your embedded circuit board design quickly.

Let us know what do think about our application tool capability in solving these problems.
