CR-8000 Design Force

Multi-board System Design – Design Force

Break down the boundaries of your electrical design process with Design Force, a true innovation in system-level IC package and PCB design and analysis. As the process for designing a complete product continues to increase in complexity, it often includes technologies that have become difficult and sometimes impossible for most ECAD tools to manage and address. Design Force provides the ability for design teams to take system-level design information from as early as the conceptual and planning phase and layout each board in the product, simultaneously considering the entire system view.

Design Force fully leverages the latest industry hardware and software capabilities, allowing users to design in a native 3D environment, obtaining optimal performance by utilizing native 64-bit, multi-threading, multi-core processors. Design Force supports multiple client-server implementations and includes the ability to work from your corporate cloud. Many consumer devices have introduced the use of finger gestures to communicate with touch screen devices. Design Force allows users to make simultaneous use of both hands, interacting with the mouse and a touch pad to promote maximum productivity during the design process by significantly reducing the number of menus, mouse clicks and mouse travel distance.
