With the advent of new design tools designed to meet the ever increasing complexity required for the development of new electronic products, there comes a time when there is only one option to take advantage of the new functionality in order to meet time to market pressures – migration from one software platform to another.

Such a migration is currently taking place within the Mentor Graphics® toolset; from the Board Station® flow to the Expedition Enterprise flow. Although there are tools available to help you through this process, there are still questions to be answered such as will you take this opportunity to rationalize your library? Do you need to migrate any design data? What are the differences between the systems? With the main question being - how can I transition from one software package to another and minimize the potential blip in productivity? So before embarking on this journey it is worthwhile taking stock of what is to be done.

Many companies see this as an ideal time to evolve their design process – we are perfectly equipped to help you through this procedure.
