Abstract. The process of integrating two CAD systems is considered, Altium Designer and Solid Edge, is considered from the point of view of desirable reduction of terms of designing of electronic equipment. The format of three-dimensional models is studied for the purpose of conversion from ECAD to MCAD and the further design of electronic equipment and two-dimensional models are investigated for the purpose of conversion from ECAD to MCAD for registration of the design documentation. Recommendations on export settings in the CAD are formulated and the ways to further development of the model for the design engineering documentation according to GOST are suggested. Application of the results are expected to allow to quickly draw up design documentation for GOST ESKD and perform end-to-end design of electronic equipment, including different types of printed circuit boards. As a result, it may reduce the design time, reduce the number of errors in the end-to-end design, comply with GOST and improve the efficiency of using CAD.
Keywords: Altium Designer, Solid Edge, CAD, MCAD, ECAD
