Frequently asked questions

Basics

What is the Celus engineering platform?The Celus engineering platform automates your electronics development. Bill of materials, schematics and PCB layout at the push of a button.

How do I get access to the platform?
The Celus engineering platform is a B2B Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Go to:celus.io/demo

How do I get access to the platform? How do I access the platform?
You can access it in your browser at app.celus.io.
What are the technical requirements to use the platform?
You can access the platform via your browser:  app.celus.io.To make manual changes to generated layout, schematic and parts list, you need a CAD tool. You will also need to provide a database of electronics modules.
Which CAD tools are currently supported?
We currently support Autodesk Eagle and Mentor Graphics Pads Professional. More will be coming soon. Feel free to inquire about the CAD tool of your choice at an online demo:celus.io/demo.
Where is my database stored?
We currently offer two different database solutions for our customer. Your database can be stored either on premise or in the cloud.

Business

What are the costs?We offer a SaaS model with yearly fees. Pricing a based on team size. Feel free to nook a demo and request a quote:celus.io/demo

How long does it take to implement the Celus engineering platform into my electronics engineering processes?Setting up the platform requires 0.5 FTE for about 3 months. That is the time, which is needed to set up the database. The platform itself is immediately usable.

What are the benefits?You will be able to drastically reduce your time to market. In previous projects we were consistently able to prove that the Celus engineering platform can reduce engineering time by 90%. This of course also reduces your R&D costs.
The database enables the engineers to work much closer together, as knowledge is not lost over time. Previously certified electronics modules can easily be re-used.

Where can I run the platform?

We currently offer three models.

  1. Cloud model: Platform in the cloud and database in the cloud.
  2. Hybrid model: Platform in the cloud and database on premise, with an encrypted connection.
  3. On premise: Platform and database on premise.

We recommend models 1 and 2, because our algorithms run best in the cloud and we can ensure frequent updates.
