Hi

Just about every "schematic capture" system is nothing more than a glorified drawing tool. The data they store are just drawings. Sheet after sheet of disconnected graphical data, with no design-wide resolution.
Cohesion Cohesion Chip Designer is more that a "schematic capture" system. It's a hierarchical database system. The drawing aspect is really just a wrapper around the underlying database. Instead of trying to figure out if something is connected by the way it's drawn, Cohesion Chip Designer knows about all connections as facts of the database. Relationships in the design are determined only by database resolution, not by graphical inference on some particular sheet.
