Schematic Design

With its clean user interface, Upverter's Schematic Capture tool simply gets the job done. The editor responds to your work and helps you catch errors in real-time before they ever become real issues.

  • Collaboration

    Work on the same design with your team in real-time. Every single edit is synced so that everyone is always working on the newest version.

  • Layout Integration

    Upverter's Schematic Capture and PCB Layout editors are always working together. Your edits are synced instantly, cutting down on translational error and time.

  • In-design Search

    Whether it's a part, net, or an attribute, immediately locate exactly what you're looking for, no matter how dense and crowded your board gets.

  • Fast Toggle to Layout

    For an efficient cross-referential workflow, Upverter lets you toggle back and forth between schematic and layout with a single key (tab).

PCB Layout

Intelligent and responsive, Upverter's PCB Layout editor is tightly integrated with the Schematic Capture tool to create an efficient work environment. The netlist and footprint updates appear automatically so that you don't have to manually import the changes.

  • Trace Ghosting

    Route your traces with ease and speed. Upverter's PCB Layout editor shows you when you step outside of your copper-to-copper parameters while you design.

  • Intuitive Visualization of Layers

    Work without any visual obstacles. Non-active layers become a translucent stackup so that you can easily see the elements that you're working with. Quickly toggle between layers using your number keys.

  • Cross-Probing

    Upverter supports bi-directional cross-probing so that you can select nets and components to instantly locate them on either schematic or layout.

    Try now in Editor
  • Selection Filters

    Select exactly what you need, even on the most crowded board. The Selection Filter menu activates only the elements you're working with.

"In terms of editing capabilities, Upverter rivals other software packages like OrCAD, but the greatest part about Upverter is its shallow learning curve."

- Andreas Jochum, Nicadrone

"Upverter's collaboration feature saved us a lot of time when it came to the trickier side of the design. It let us interact with our overseas experts in real-time."

- Cedric Honnet, Tangible Display

"The schematic capture took minutes to learn. I'd recommend Upverter to anyone just starting out on hardware."

- Shane Petcavich, Open Analog

The Largest Parts Library in the World

Upverter's Parts Library is always growing and being updated. If you can't find the component that you're looking for, creating a new part is a quick and streamlined process. See a Part Now

  • Footprint Generator

    Upverter's IPC-compliant footprint and BGA generator lets you create an accurate footprint in 30 seconds.

  • CSV Import

    For those FPGAs with too many pins to count, you can import a CSV file of the pin names and numbers to expedite the part creation process.

  • Octopart Integration

    Instantly import real component data, straight from Octopart. Creating a new part takes a fraction of the time.

  • Generic Parts

    For common passives like resistors and capacitors, Upverter offers a collection of Generics that can be placed instantly without a manufacturer part number so that you can quickly move forward with your design.

Hierarchical Design

Upverter eliminates tedious and repetitive jobs so that you can focus on moving your design forward. With Modules, it's simple to reuse design subcomponents and make edits to all their instances from one place.

  • Create Modules From Schematic or Layout

    For projects that require multiple instances of the same schematic and layout elements, you can speed up the design process by creating and applying Modules.

  • Improved Reusability

    Upverter's hierarchical design makes the reuse of design convenient and uncomplicated. Don't waste a minute doing work that's already been done.

Design Report

Instantly get an overview of your design. Upverter's automated Design Report not only lays out the essentials--number of parts, nets, stackup, and board dimensions--but also automatically calculates how electrically complete your design is.

  • Unconnected Pins

    Easily assess how connected your design is by seeing which pins are left unconnected. Upverter can analyze your project and generate a percentage value to gauge your progress.

  • Rule Violations

    See a list of your design rule violations so you know exactly what edits need to be made. All design rule parameters are customizable to meet your project's specific needs.

3D Rendering & Export

Your designs are much more than just two-dimensional images on your screen. Upverter helps you visualize your board as a real, three-dimensional object. All automated, no rendering wait time.

  • Auto Render

    Flip to the 3D render tab on your Project page and see your board and components represented as a 3D model.

  • Step Export

    Step files can be exported to help you transition to the next phase in product development.

High Quality MFG Output

Simply download everything your assembler and PCB fabricator need to manufacture your board. All your design's associated files can be grabbed from your Project page.

  • Export Formats

    Upverter generates a variety of reliable manufacturing files including Gerber, NC Drill, Pick and Place, BOM and more.

  • Share your Designs with a Private URL

    The easiest way to share your design with anyone, including your manufacturer. Send your project and all its associated data using a private URL.

"We manufactured boards designed in Upverter and the CAM outputs were clean, complete, and correct."

- Hark Chuckal, ITL Circuits

"All of the CAM files my manufacturer needed were easy to download from Upverter and the boards were manufactured flawlessly."

- Louis Yi, Hardware Engineer

"Moving over to manufacturing was a smooth process with Upverter. I simply downloaded the file formats that I needed and sent it to my manufacturer. Everything came out great."

- Richard Coleman, Hardware Engineer
