We consider it the right step with a low entry barrier into the digital world. Our customers can grow this, at their own pace, into a fully digital factory, if they choose to. All modules work hand-in-hand. The entry package goes way beyond a simple tool for CAD data conversion, rather it can be seen as a simulation tool which reduces waste of microelectronic parts right from the start of the design process with a resultant yield realized.
