CR-8000 - Advanced PCB Design Software

CR-8000 is a suite of applications that span the entire PCB engineering lifecycle: from architecture planning through system level engineering and optimization, to physical implementation and manufacturing.

CR-8000 is the only PCB design environment complemented by data management capabilities, providing comprehensive library, module, configuration and release management.

TRUSTED BY CUSTOMERS

CR-8000 - from architectural planning to physical implementation

CR-8000 is a product-centric electronic system design solution that provides the tools to optimize a design at both the IC and PCB design level. Product-centric design processes provide architectural validation of the design against product requirements. Product-centric detailed design includes 2D/3D multi-board design and implementation, FPGA I/O optimization, chip/package/board co-design, and 3D MCAD integration all in one design process.

Building blocks

Explore implementation approaches on a system level

Partitioning

Partition complex systems into multiple connected PCBs

IC package

Manage IC, package and PCB in one single environment

Data Management

Control releases, revisions and configurations with integrated data management

Take the CR-8000 Product Tour

Successful companies are building highly competitive products, smaller, lighter, and more functional. As products evolve, the design process evolves too: Shifting from a PCB-centric focus to and end-to-end approach combining hierarchical multi-board design, 3D multiboard PCB design, FPGA optimization and IC package design, SI analysis, PI analysis and comprehensive PCB manufacturing outputs into one consistent environment

From Concept to Manufacturing

The CR-8000 suite is the only concept-to-manufacturing, multi-board design tool suite that has been developed from the start to address the unique requirements of today’s ever-increasing challenges in system-level design optimization.

The suite’s fully integrated design flow ranges from initial system planning, where critical design decisions are made about design partitioning, schematic capture, and circuit design and simulation, through to multi-board PBC layout with comprehensive design-for-manufacturing capabilities for optimized manufacturing outputs.

 

 

Platform Features

System Level - from Concept to Manufacture

Functional design

CR-8000 is a comprehensive engineering and design environment that enables engineer to define and validate the architecture of new designs on a functional level using a mix of functional blocks that can be referenced to existing schematics

System circuit engineering

Ensure design integrity and manufacturability with embedded simulation and analysis tools and powerful design rule checks

Central constraint management

Save time and eliminate errors through centrally managed rules and constraints

2D/3D multi-board design

Manage multiple board designs as a coherent system within the boundaries of their mechanical enclosures.

Chip package and PCB co-design

Create and optimize the layout of system-in-package (SiP), package-on-package (PoP) and package-in-package (PiP) assemblies in 2D and 3D in their target PCB environment

Library and Design Data Management

Control releases, revisions and configurations with an integrated data management environment.

How to be First to Market with DDR5!

DDR5 is the latest generation of memory. In this joint webinar with Keysight Technologies, we’ll begin with pre-layout simulation, then transition to CR-8000. The design will then be verified by Electromagnetic (EM) simulation and system simulations in Keysight ADS, in order to build confidence in the final DDR5 design.
