    High-Speed Design Powered by Zuken’s CADSTAR Solution at Xyco

    High-tech electronics outsourcing company Xyco uses Zuken’s CADSTAR PCB software to support their customers with leading edge high-speed technology.

    Malvern Instruments have benefited from CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite by enhancing data collaboration between ECAD and MCAD, and improving manufacturing data.

    As Electronics engineers we often perceive the electronics design encapsulated in the PCB assembly to be the core of the product. At Malvern Instruments, however, that is not the case as their advanced instruments are primarily mechanical in nature so the electronics forms a critical, but secondary, element of the finished product.

    Raymarine chooses CADSTAR for productivity and EMC options

    Raymarine produces a wide range of recreational marine electronics products including Radar and Autopilots.

    TEWS significantly reduces development time and cost of complex high-speed PCBs using concurrent power integrity simulation

    TEWS Technologies encountered challenges around power distribution onPCBs for their embedded interface modules, due to today’s increasingly complex designs. By adding CADSTAR Power Integrity Advance module to their high-speed design flow they are now meeting targets for right-the-first-time designs and achieve rapid compliance with power integrity constraints.
