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 the requirements. 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 flow.

Concept to Manufacturing PCB Design Software

CR-8000 is the only concept-to-manufacturing PCB Design Software that has been developed from the start to address the unique requirements of today’s ever-increasing challenges in system-level design optimization.

The software 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.

System-Level Design

CR-8000 is a comprehensive engineering and design environment that enables engineers 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.

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

Save time and eliminate errors through centrally managed rules and constraints.

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

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.

Renishaw

Flexible and flexi-rigid PCBs are integral components within many of Renishaw’s products, and detailed signal integrity analysis is needed to ensure high speed digital signals can be transmitted with minimal distortion. Renishaw migrated to Design Gateway and Design Force, part of Zuken’s CR-8000 PCB design suite, primarily to help with the design and analysis of next-generation flexible PCBs.

Toshiba

Toshiba faced a difficult design problem: their TransferJet™ technology was embedded in a customer cell phone, and when the next rev of the phone they needed to shrink the board and the module thickness. On top of that, they had to add RF matching to simplify the adoption of the module. Toshiba used Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force with ANSYS analysis tools to accomplish the project.
