2D/3D Multi-board PCB Design
CR-8000 Design Force
The highest performing board design and analysis solution, Design Force supports single board, multi-board and chip-package-board interconnect analysis and optimization. Combining traditional 2D design with native 3D design and the latest human interface techniques, accelerated graphics and almost instantaneous rendering and refreshing, Design Force is the fastest, most effective PCB design solution available today.
A mouse in one hand and a touchpad in the other enables two-handed design. Menu picks, mouse clicks and mouse travel distance are greatly reduced, making it much faster and easier to use than comparable ECAD solutions.
With Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force we have state-of-the-art technology to help us respond to the latest trends in the electronics industry. We also expect to see a remarkable boost in productivity due to a more streamlined process and tighter integration with simulation tools.

How does it work?
Design Force enables design teams to layout their designs as in the context of a complete system or product. Designers can easily create any design from quick prototype boards to complex, multi-board systems using one tool.
With inherent support for high-speed designs, engineers and layout designers can conduct signal integrity, EMC, and power integrity analysis concurrently, manage constraints, and autoroute a board – all in one environment. With a native 2D and 3D architecture, designers can effectively co-design a chip, package and board to optimize I/Os at each level, embed components in the dielectric of a stack-up intelligently, and verify manufacturing rules in real-time. Produce designs with concurrent design-for-manufacturing checks and constraint verification to ensure both manufacturing and engineering intent are maintained during the design process.
It includes interactive and automatic design tools with embedded SI analysis and verification.

ADM – Advanced design for manufacturing
Enables embedded, vendor-driven manufacturing rule checks during board layout. With ADM, designers can identify and address critical manufacturing issues early in the design process and reduce costly iterations with board manufacturers.
Design Force offers an intuitive, integrated environment for designing single and multi-die packages for wire-bond, flip-chip, and high density advanced packaging or printed circuit board (PCB).
Design Force offers the industry’s first native 3D environment supporting a true hierarchy relationship between the chip, package and PCB in a system.
Graphical Pin Manager (GPM), offers an effective FPGA/PCB co-design environment providing support for the latest devices offered by FPGA vendors, such as Xilinx, Altera, Lattice, and Microsemi.
As part of the CR-8000 family, GPM enables design teams to communicate I/O and constraint information intelligently for FPGAs or other high-pin count devices, at any time, using Design Gateway and Design Force. This means programmable devices can be developed in parallel to the PCB design , and are ready to meet project delivery and production schedules.
Engineers and designers can conduct signal integrity, EMC and power integrity-based checks directly within Design Force. Users select from and configure 36 rules in six categories, generate check results, cross-probe and highlight within the design and create summary reports
Designers can use Zuken’s advanced interactive and automatic routing capabilities simultaneously. During board layout, users specify multiple instances of strategy-driven areas to simultaneously autoroute the design. This significantly improves design completion times
DFM Elements is a manufacturing, panel design and verification environment that supports PCB design data developed using Design Force. Various interfaces are available including IPC-2581. ODB++ export, and DXF import and export.
Import mechanical enclosures directly within Design Force for real-time electromechanical co-design for single or multi-board designs.
CR-8000 is a complete design environment that includes fully integrated simulation and analysis tools to verify your single or multi-board designs.
