Spreadsheet solutions like Microsoft Excel have long been used to manage connectivity, constraints and critical design interfaces for complex high-pin-count designs such as back planes. However, they still lack the following core necessities that an electronics engineer requires when defining a complex PCB. Such limitations minimise the value added over traditional schematic capture approaches.

In the second part of a series dedicated to schematic capture, Cadence senior architect Vikas Kohli discusses how a standard spreadsheet approach can be enhanced to create a powerful design entry solution that can handle designs with large pin counts.
