PDN impedance is becoming more and more of a headache for PCB designers as IC vendors are defining increasingly tight so-called ‘target impedance limits’. This article explains what PDN impedance means for PCB designers and what to pay particular attention to.
Viele Jahre lang war das Layout einer Leiterplatte in 2D für die meisten Mainstream-Technologien ausreichend. Heute stehen Produktentwickler im Elektronikbereich jedoch vor neuen Herausforderungen, ausgelöst durch Megatrends wie beispielsweise das Internet of Things. Können die heutigen CAD-Tools also die neuen Anforderungen erfüllen und die Vorteile der neuen Technologien ausschöpfen?
Many Designers are always asking Zuken how they can create their own user commands that will appear in the Tool List when doing a Right Mouse Button Click on a design under settings in the Engineering Desktop. User commands can be created and listed. This can be accomplished with minimal effort. It will be the designer’s responsibility to create a script that will be listed on the tool list.
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.
In CR-8000 Engineering Desktop, we have a function call “CR-8000 Combo Command”. What is the “CR-8000 Combo Command”? This command allows a user to create and put in multiple CR-8000 tool commands together, and continuously execute multiple processes. We have a dialog to create the process how the user likes to run it.
Was tun, wenn Ihr nächstes Projekt besonders hohe EMV-Anforderungen stellt und schneller als jemals zuvor abgeschlossen werden muss?
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.
CR-8000 2020 is Zuken’s flagship PCB design platform, and I’m pleased to share some of the most exciting details of the new product release with you. But before we get into the new product release discussion, you may be wondering why we call it a platform and not a tool. CR-8000 2020 has all the bells and whistles for electronic subsystem development.
When your design is nearing completion and you want to make sure the schematic matches what you have in your board try using the Design Gateway, Design Synchronization Tool.
In today’s global value chains, data exchange and re-reuse are vital to support collaboration and productivity. But most data formats are proprietary. For any organization with an extensive database of ECAD data, the need for data migration will eventually arise.
During the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, we are all experiencing changes in our day-to-day lives. While we’re all staying safe at home, we’re now also working at home. At Zuken, we’re working with customers daily to address their business needs.
During this time of Covid-19 we’re all trying to keep the wheels of business turning, and that means that most of us are now preparing to work from home. This post points out some of the things to consider when setting up a home office, including how to set up your Zuken software.
This brief video shows you how exporting search results to a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file works. A repeated support call topic is how to export a long list of search results, so we will cover that one, too.
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.
Electronic components are constantly changing, causing parts to go EOL (End-of-Life) for various reasons: companies go out of business, component product lines change hands, old technology is updated with new. Electronic product manufacturers must be agile to keep their product BOMs (bill of materials) up to date and keep their supply chain humming. Fortunately for them, Zuken’s DS-CR customers leverage component and design data relationships to tackle the problem.
