Well-maintained and consistent libraries are the keys to efficient design work in xPCB Layout®. The Library Part Creation in the Xpedition Flow course will give you the skills necessary to create, protect, add to, and change the different data types in your Central Library. The lecture modules discuss the Central Library philosophy as well as how to use the xDM Library Tools™ utilities, and how to best interface library objects into your design process.

Hands-on lab exercises reinforce the lecture topics as you create a small library of symbols, parts, and cells from scratch under the guidance of our industry expert instructors.
