PADS is a CAD PCB editor produced by Mentor Graphics


PADS is a software package from Mentor Graphics used for schematic capture, PCB layout, and circuit simulation.

exist and aren't aliasies of each other.

Since is highly ambiguous, but still has only 68 questions to date, I'd like to replace it with on all the question about Mentor PADS, and with on all question about a PCB contact in SMT technology (and fix the description).

Is that a desirable mode of operation?


Sounds good to me. I am a bit worried about how the tag would be found by people that didn't use the word "mentor"
