Creating pin pairs in the Constraint Browser is fine for one or two nets at a time, but if you want to create pin pairs for a whole design, I recommend using an easy, single-step macro.
This video walks through the process of creating connections that span more than one page in E3.series. This process comes in handy if your schematic sheet gets too crowded or your signal continues to another part of the schematic.
Did you know when editing lengthening patterns in CR-8000 Design Force, you can modify the lengthening pattern, and meet your constraints all in one step?
CR-8000 Design Force 2017 has improved the offset via function by adding efficiency in pulling out tracks from vias, creating BGA designs and build-up designs. The controls are based on the following...
A common task that is often dreaded among PCB designers is having to relocate a large point-count BGA that’s fanned out, and even partially escaped routed, to the opposite side of a PCB.
One of the more powerful capabilities of a good data management system such as DS-CR (formerly known as DS-2) is searching and the ability to generate reports. A great example is the ability to generate Where-used information. These types of reports are extremely useful when performing impact assessments where ...
The customization and workspace flexibility is one more way for E3.series to give the user what they need and want. All workspace customizations can be saved locally to provide a consistent user interface.
We are all looking to gain productivity in our design cycle to save time and reduce costs. A good method to get a head start is to use Excel or a .csv file to get the design started and load devices into you project. The most common application is to load the connectors and signals from Printed Circuit Board (PCB) in the electrical design. Blocks can be used to represent systems and the Excel sheet can help you get the system information from other teams or 3rd party vendors.
E3.series 2017 brings improved automatic routing for making connections by adding automatic connections between selected items. The most common controls are based on the following scenarios ...
