Autodesk to build enhanced ECAD, following acquisition of ECSCAD technology

In a deal that’s set to expand Autodesk’s Electrical CAD, the company is acquiring Elektro-CAE-Software’s ECSCAD product line.

The agreement has been signed with parent company Mensch und Maschine Deutschland, adding significantly to Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping solution for manufacturing. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Robert ‘Buzz’ Kross, Autodesk Manufacturing Solutions’ senior vice president, says ECSCAD complements AutoCAD Electrical software, and adds that, since both products are built on the AutoCAD platform, the company expects to create even more powerful tools for electrical controls design.

“The addition of ECS technologies enhances the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping and helps a larger audience to create complete digital prototypes that integrate both mechanical and electrical designs,” says Kross.

And Guenter Manz, managing director of Elektro-CAE-Software, adds: “Extending Autodesk electrical CAD with Elektro-CAE-Software solutions opens the door to new and enhanced workflows, currently unavailable from either drawing-centric or database-driven electrical CAD software.”
