CR-8000 Design Force
In Design Force you can edit your board Technology using the 3D Technology Editor. In the 3D technology edit window, you can perform the following operations to edit the technology for the board.
Was tun, wenn Ihr nächstes Projekt besonders hohe EMV-Anforderungen stellt und schneller als jemals zuvor abgeschlossen werden muss?
Board design rule checks only check up to the board outline. If you had dropped or moved some data outside the board outline there was no check for this until now...
What drives the features that are added or updated in a new release? The majority of the changes or additions in any Zuken tool release are customer-driven. Our customers provide valuable insight into emerging technologies, process and methodology changes, and the direction in which their EDA needs are taking them. This post focuses on the high points of the CR-8000 2020 release.
Checking the pinout of your connectors is an important part of creating your printed circuit board. Checking your pin connections can save you from a costly re-spin of your circuit board. This can be done using the Constraint Browser in Design Force. By default, the Constraint Browser does not show this information.
Die Vorteile der Entwicklung aller Platinen eines Multi-Board Systems in einem durchgängigen System. Das so genannte Stacking von Platinen -das Stapeln von Leiterplatten als Alternative zur Verbindung über Kabeln - ist ein aktueller Trend, der die Herstellungskosten senken und die Zuverlässigkeit verbessern kann.
When design space is at a premium, sometimes traces can be at risk of being exposed by any misregistration of the solder mask. If you have this situation use the “Cut Land” option under the Track tab in Design Force.
Offsetting your Grid can be very useful when your component pads do not fall on the current Grid.
With every software release, you’ll find hundreds of enhancements, and CR-8000 Design Force 2019 is not an exception. Some are flashy and exciting, while others are, well, more utilitarian. But each and every one of them makes the product better. In this post, I’ll review my favorite 6 new routing enhancements in CR-8000 Design Force 2019.
This video illustrates how to import and export ABL file from CR-8000 Advanced PCB Design Software Design Force tool to Keysight Technology’s Advanced Design Systems (ADS) Momentum Tool.
If you migrated from CR-5000 Board Designer you might recall my ToolTip a few years back, specific to using the Parameter Resource file, in order to save and reuse settings you define within the tool such as route parameters or dimension parameters. The data resource file in the Design Force is the equivalent to that parameters resource file.
A function that pushes tracks away and avoids obstacles when a via is moved has been added. This is a great advantage for the designer when routing. What use to take a lot of time to move traces and vias to move a via to a new location has been greatly enhanced using the “Activ-45 Router”.
In DF 2019 we have new feature call “Checking the Unconnected Length”. But this feature is not in the What’s New online help, since it is execute by simple macro syntax...
Calculate the track width value from the characteristic impedance and layer configuration by using a field solver.
In this tech tip, we will explore how you can clear a routed trace pattern on multiple conductive layers. Watch our video to go through the steps with us.
