High-speed Placement and Routing - with length and delay based routing
P.R. Editor XR 5000HS
Zuken's highest level router. Including all of the features and functionality found within Place and Route Editor XR 2000, Place and Route Editor XR 5000HS (high-speed) offers specific additional functionality targeted for high-speed PCB design, such as DDR2, DDR3, DDR4 and PCI Express. It obeys a wide range of fast circuit rules including min/max length, skew, delay and crosstalk limits to meet tight timing and noise margins. Manual and automatic editing tools enable nets to be tuned precisely for track length or flight-time to achieve optimum timing characteristics.

P.R.Editor Activ-45: PCB design optimization with advanced 45 degree routing and pushing >>
The integrated Constraint Manager provides a fast and effective way to create and view even the most complex net constraints, using a familiar spreadsheet style interface, by grouping critical nets into logical groups, constrain them by assigning differential pairs, skew groups or 'family' skew values to quickly build a constraint hierarchy in just a few clicks of the mouse. Constraint information is stored in a database that is shared with PCB layout, routing, verification and analysis, providing a smooth exchange of data and a consistent user interface across all applications in the design flow.
To achieve the desired timing requirements for high-speed nets, engineers must consider the proper connectivity and pin order for routing. Topology Editor provides engineers with a schematic view of the complete signal with tools to assign predefined topologies such as daisy chain, H-tree or star, or create custom templates to apply to a range of high-speed nets.
