NetBom

document differences in NetLists and BOMS.

 

Compare Design Revisions

NetBom compares the differences between two revisions of an Allegro®, Altium®, OrCAD®, or Mentor® design and provides an 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.

NetBom can also convert the input design files to human readable and machine readable NetLists and BOMS, allowing the user to easily validate their design.
