NetBom

Concisely document differences in NetLists and Bills of Materials.

 

Compare Design Revisions

NetBom compares the differences between two revisions of an Allegro®, OrCAD®, or Mentor® design and provides a concise, intuitive summary of all the changes in the BOM and NetLists. The reports are invaluable at a design review to prove that all required changes were made and no surprises exist.
