PDXpert 15.0 Adds Innovative Security Features

PDXpert PLM software introduces security and flexibility to industry PDX file format

DENVER, Colorado, January 19, 2022 -- Active Sensing, Inc. is pleased to introduce SHA-256 cryptographic features to industry-standard IPC-2570 ("PDX") packages. The latest PDXpert PLM software release 15.0 uses public key encryption to sign engineering data packages, and embeds a signing certificate within the PDX package for optional AES-256 password protection. A detailed technical specification describes the implementation for software developers.

PDXpert now also supports customizable PDX export definitions, allowing frequently-used package content to be saved as templates that can be further modified as each package is exported. The supported set of IPC-2570 attributes has expanded, and PDX packages can exceed the original size limits defined by IPC-2570.

PDXplorerâ„¢ software, the world's most popular PDX package reader, now reads signed PDX packages and protects engineering data packages using cryptographically-strong passwords. PDXplorer can also read design packages larger than 4GB.

PDXpert 15.0 includes many other improvements, including updated window layouts, currency exchange rate services, and system installer features.
