Automatic generation of schematics, now via JavaScript and web capabilities

August 02, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
German company Concept Engineering (Freiburg) has added JavaScript-based Web capabilities to its Nlview software. The company’s tools enable schematic generation and viewing technology for use with logic synthesis, verification, test automation and physical design tools. The tools extend beyond a ‘pure EDA’ environment and are used by automotive, industrial automation and aerospace designers; for web-based IP management; and by COTs boards providers.

Concept Engineering is a specialist in visualization and debugging technology for electronic circuits and systems; its new module, NlviewJS, enables automatic schematic generation, schematic viewing and automated system assembly to run on web browsers. The code is based on JavaScript and HTML5 standards and enables interactive tools for design debugging, design visualization and automated design creation that seamlessly run within standard web browsers on mobile devices or on desktop systems.


The Nlview engine provides automatic generation of schematic diagrams for different levels of electronic circuits, including gate level, RTL level and block level. Optional engines are available for the system level (S-engine) and for the transistor level (T-engine). NlviewJS brings design engineers or service engineers the convenience of using web browsers to remotely access design data, intellectual property (IP) library components or system diagrams without having to install complex software on their computer or mobile device. Web-based design and debugging tools allow multiple users to have accurate access to up-to-date, live system data and offer interactive communication with connected data servers.


NlviewJS gives designers the ability to use company- and application-specific Intranet tools, without any need to install complex software. Simply pointing the browser to the correct URL will provide access to design and critical, up-to-date system “health” information from any location. Visualization features and debugging capabilities are customizable, allowing company-specific design and service platforms.
