Abstract

This is a method of using a process which converts CAD and BOM data into SVG format ant then uses an Excel macro to link schematics, PWB, and BOM together. This allows the users to search for a part in the schematics, PWB, and BOM without opening the files in their native format. You can use the reference number and search in all three categories. A descriptor provides the description and information about the part number while a highlighted symbol and macro indicates the location of the part in schematics or PWB.
