CADSTAR options

In addition to the CADSTAR bundle you select, you can also add individual CADSTAR modules to create a CADSTAR suite specific to your requirements.

  • CADSTAR Schematic & Variants is available as a separate add-on so you can quickly, easily and cost-effectively extend your CADSTAR network across your entire engineering team.
  • Variant Manager ensures you maintain only one master design that includes all production variants, whether for sets of non-fitted Parts or alternate Part values
  • CADSTAR FPGA adds HDL development to the CADSTAR design flow - 30 day evaluation software
  • Placement Planner provides the design engineer with the interactive and automatic placement and checking tools to pre-place critical components and reuse blocks, define track width and spacing constraints, update the layer stack to ensure impedance rules are met, and more
  • IDF interface provides a simple means to exchange board profile and placement data between PCB Layout and your 3D MCAD design tool
  • Board Modeler Lite adds comprehensive 3D integration, visualization, conflict collision checking and 3D library managements to bridge the gap between 3D MCAD and ECAD
  • Place & Route Editor XR5000HS adds not only Zuken's proven high-speed routing technology for length- or timing-constrained routing, differential-pair routing, impedance controlled routing, but also includes Rules-by-Area and a host of other high performance routing utilities
  • Dragon Router adds routing automation to take the effort out of high complexity digital layouts
  • SI Verify lets you analyze the data quality of your digital designs, explore alternative strategies and verify proposed solutions before committing the time and expense of building a prototype
  • Power Integrity Advance helps you predict, analyse and control design issues that impact the power distribution and EMC emission of your PCB layout
