CATIA V5 Flexible

CATIA V5 Flexible PCB Design (CBE)

Catia V5 Flexible PCB Overview

Today’s consumers require compact electronic devices with greater functionalities. To create high-quality products faster, companies need integration of realistic Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) inside a virtual product and simplified collaboration between mechanical and electronics specialists.

CATIA – Flexible PCB Design enables modeling of circuit boards within a virtual mock-up and facilitates collaboration with electronic CAD systems.


  • Easy and intuitive creation : creating a PCB shape in 3D in a fully digital environment
  • Robust Electro-Mechanical engineering collaboration through a standard intermediate data format
  • Effective and strengthened Electronics CAD and Mechanical CAD design collaboration


  • Multi-body sheet metal part makes it possible to start design from several connectors concurrently
  • Dedicated tools for thin parts modeling
  • Easy creation of mechanical shapes of printed circuit boards in the context of the mechanical assembly
  • Bi-directional interface with electrical CAD Systems based on industry standard interface (IDF) format
  • Creation and management of electronic component catalogs
  • Intelligent placement of components like connectors coming from a catalog, constrained in its mechanical environment
  • Easy mapping with several Electronics CAD import/export referential tools for position without need for redesign in CATIA thanks to the neutral data exchange format defining 3D components library
