How is the MAC address generated?

Windows
Start a command shell by typing: cmd in the Windows menu search box and then Enter. A command line window opens. Enter: ipconfig /all. All your system network adapters will be listed. Find an adapter with a network connection and copy the physical address. This consists of 6 x 2-digit hexadecimal numbers separated by hyphens.

Linux/Unix
Open a terminal and enter the following command: ifconfig. Confirm with Enter.
Look for the network eth0, depending on distribution it can also have a different name. The line with ether specifies the MAC ID: Here are 6 x 2-digit hex numbers separated by a colon.

PADS® Professional

Self-contained, integrated PCB design flow for hardware designer designing complex boards

Design, validate, and manufacture complex PCBs with PADS® Professional, the cutting-edge solution that delivers Xpedition® technology to engineering professionals who work outside a corporate CAD environment.

PADS® Professional

Source: Mentor – A Siemens Business

PADS® Professional is powerful, but it’s also easy to learn, use and afford. It is designed to give the experienced user all the horsepower they need, yet intuitive, so casual or occasional users can accelerate their time to productivity.

The full flow of PADS® Professional lets you design, validate and manufacture PCB-centric systems incorporating advanced FPGA devices.

We provide an array of design and library translators to facilitate migration from competitive platforms.

Some of the most important features are:

  • Fewer design spins with virtual prototyping including SI, PI, Thermal, DFM and 3D validation
  • Constraint driven, correct by construction
  • Quick, efficient design re-use
  • Stunning routing productivity gains with sketch routing
  • Native 3D PCB design for placement, routing, MCAD collaboration
  • Scalable as your needs grow
