How to Generate Offset Vias from a Via in CR-8000 Design Force

Tech Tip: How to Generate Offset Vias from a Via in CR-8000 Design Force

Menu

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:

  • Qualified padstacks
  • Rule-based layer pair vias
  • Parameters specified in the offset via command panel

The following video shows how to set up and use the offset via feature in Design Force.
