Engineering, layout or high-speed specialist? CADSTAR has it all.

Design engineers need the flexibility to design at the symbol, part, block or sheet level for maximum speed and productivity. CADSTAR’s ability to create mixed hierarchical and multi-sheet schematics helps organize even the most complex designs; while the connective database automatically maintains net intelligence and design constraints throughout the tool flow. 

Layout professionals demand a toolset that supports their creativity and preferred working methods, but also maintains design integrity and conformance to design rules to ensure a ready-to-manufacture output. CADSTAR’s customizable user interface, ability to support any layer and element (pads, tracks etc.) definitions and powerful interactive tools let you design the way that suits you.

High-speed design specialists need fully integrated routing, signal and power integrity analysis that allows measurement and analysis of complex parameters ‘on the fly’ in a logical and usable way. CADSTAR Constraint Manager adopts a familiar spreadsheet paradigm that dramatically simplifies the complex process of managing the hierarchical rules involved when implementing today's high performance devices.

Compare the CADSTAR bundles - CADSTAR offer you a range of pre-configured Schematic and PCB design products. The bundles are fully maintained and supported around the clock via the Zuken support web site and backed up by local distribution partners.
