Take the CADSTAR product tour
CADSTAR spans schematic capture, placement, routing, library creation and management, signal integrity and EMC analysis, along with the production of manufacturing data.
With CADSTAR's unified suite of applications, engineers can seamlessly define, visualize, implement and verify their designs.
Schematic capture for PBC designs
CADSTAR Schematics is a highly integrated front-end solution, providing a smooth and error-free transition (forward & back annotation) between schematics and PCB, easy to learn and use for both occasional and frequent users.
PCB Design Editor
Easy to learn and fast to use, the constraint driven approach of CADSTAR PCB design layout software helps you create right-first-time printed circuit board designs.
3D PCB Visualization and Collision Check
With its Board Modeler Lite, CADSTAR bridges the gap between electronic and mechanical design allowing PCB designers to work in a 3D environment, perform collision checks between components, boards and enclosure and make placement changes to resolve them.
Place and Route Editor
With a mix of manual, auto-interactive and automatic tools for PCB placement and routing, the CADSTAR Place and Route Editor 2000 has been optimized for performance, quality and manufacturability to meet today’s advanced technology design challenges.
High-speed design with length and delay-based routing
With its highest performing routing tool, Route Editor XR 5000HS, CADSTAR offers specific additional functionality targeted for high-speed PCB design, such as DDR2, DDR3, DDR4 and PCI Express, including min/max length, skew, delay and crosstalk limits to meet tight timing and noise margins.
Zuken’s CADSTAR solution integrates a design migration tool within all bundles, which includes additional features to better support and exploit legacy design data. Designs can be imported from a number of third party packages, including:
- PADS (Mentor Graphics)
- OrCAD (Cadence)
- PCAD/Protel/Altium Designer (Altium)
