Autodesk completes acquisition of ECS

Autodesk, a provider of 2D and 3D design software, has completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Elektro-CAE-Software, a provider of electrical computer-aided design software, including the ECSCAD product line.

Autodesk announced its intent to acquire substantially all of the assets of Germany-based Elektro-CAE-Software (ECS) from Mensch und Maschine Deutschland, a member of the Mensch und Maschine group, in August 2008. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Further enhancing the Autodesk solution for digital prototyping with software that relies on database-driven methods for controls system design, ECSCAD software reportedly complements AutoCAD Electrical software, which is used to create accurate schematic-based designs. As both product lines are built on the AutoCAD platform, Autodesk will be positioned to enhance functionality and performance for both ECSCAD and AutoCAD Electrical customers and to offer even better tools for a broad range of electrical controls designers, said Autodesk.

Robert Kross, senior vice president of Autodesk manufacturing solutions, said: The acquisition of the ECSCAD technology extends Autodesk’s leadership in digital prototyping and will allow European electrical design engineers to integrate both mechanical and electrical designs, offering the best of both worlds of database and drawing-based technology. We welcome ECS employees and customers to Autodesk.
