Simulating PCB in Real-Time
The inspectAR tool uses off-the-shelf devices with a hybrid of in-house and custom AR technology. Repeat a two-step calibration process for the front and back side of the board to get a project up and working in minutes. No fiducials are required, and any color combination of silkscreen, solder mask, and work surface background will work.

Comments can be attached to any net or component in order to streamline discussions and solve issues faster. Comments can be tagged and coded according to priority or function. Save states allows you to group together various nets and components to create an entire subsystem. You can share this directly to a team member in order to give them confidence of the area of the board they need to work on, eliminating confusion caused from looking at the wrong area of the board.
Finding a data sheet to look up component pin mapping before probing is a difficult, problematic task when you must guess which orientation that part was placed on the board by the designer. Finding a particular temperature curve or the expected packets within the datasheet for a given signal can be similarly difficult. The inspectAR tool’s built-in part search leverages Cadence’s Unified Component search to bring datasheets and parametric part information right into the lab. PDFs can be viewed natively from within the inspectAR tool right alongside your overlays and board.
