Zuken is working on the development of a unified intercommunication bridge between Zuken’s prime PCB design solution CR-5000 and third-party PDM systems with a product called Zuken PDM Adapter.

This solution will provide an optimal interface between CR-5000 and third-party enterprise PDM systems, allowing users of CR-5000 to handle electrical design and structure data from the enterprise level in an existing PDM system.

This forms part of a strategy by Zuken to extend its product portfolio for the whole product data management area and expanding further Zuken’s growing portfolio of PLM-ready products, which includes the advanced DS-2 solution for integrated electrical design management.

As Zuken’s data management solution Zuken PDM Adapter interfaces electrical design data to third-party PDM systems for a whole product structure, and in addition to this, DS-2 offers an option to optimise electrical design process management.

Thus, Zuken can provide total design environment for its customers.

The Zuken PDM Adapter integrates PCB engineering into the supply chain, enabling the design structure of circuit and PCB’s created within CR-5000 to be handled within the user’s existing PDM systems for lifecycle management functions.

It will also enable the user to add links between CR-5000 electrical design data and other forms of design data in various connectivity stages.

Users can also manipulate electrical design data and associated structures from the enterprise level in third-party PDM systems.

The openess of connectivity allows the PDM Adapter to remain neutral and provides non-vender-specific integration capabilities for any PDM system that has an open interface.

As a first step in the initial release, scheduled for launch during 2009 in Europe and the USA, Zuken PDM Adapter will support Smarteam and Teamcenter.

This will be followed by support for other third-party PDM systems.

The native Application Programming Interface inside of the Zuken PDM Adapter enables direct access of raw data from CR-5000 design files and the PDM system in use.
