ExactCAD offers add-on software and software development services which enhance and support  Mentor Graphics Xpedition ECAD software.

Mentor’s Xpedition toolset is a market leader in the ECAD software domain. ExactCAD makes it even better by allowing PCB designers to focus their skills on the creative aspects of the design process and allowing computers to do everything else – all the boring, tedious, and error prone tasks designers hate to do. 

Humans are very good at creative tasks, and not very good at repetitive ones. We are also happier at work when we don’t have to do things which put us to sleep, when we can keep our minds active overcoming challenges and solving complex problems. Sometimes we make mistakes, especially when we are tired or bored.

Conversely, computers are not good at being creative, but excel at doing repetitive, discrete tasks very quickly and accurately. When given correct instructions and input, they don’t make mistakes.

ExactCAD leverages the strengths of designers and their computers to produce better, more consistent design output, and to do it faster. This is a win for everyone – designers are happier, companies save money, design cycles are shorter, and computers get to make use of a lot more of their trillions of wasted CPU cycles.
