Senior Project - MissingLink


Engineering Graphics System to Printed Circuit Design System Auto-Router Link

Senior Project: 1987-1988
Blair Bassett, Robert Burgess and Patrick Mecheski
Fort Collins Engineering Operation
Fort Collins, CO

Hewlett-Packard has two products used by the printed circuit board industry -- the Engineering Graphics System (EGS) and the Printed Circuit Board Design System (PCDS). While the PCDS has the capability of automatic routing of board traces, the EGS does not. This project, written in Pascal, provided an easy-to-use interface which allows a user of the EGS to have printed circuit boards routed by the PCDS Auto-Router. This involved extracting the appropriate information from an EGS file, transferring it to the Auto-Router, transferring the results back to EGS, and incorporating the results into the EGS file automatically.
