Tech Tip: Setting Clearance Classes in CR-8000 Design Gateway
When a design requires specific minimum spacing between net classes, these clearance classes can easily be created and assigned in CR-8000 Design Gateway.
You can create clearance classes in CR-8000 Design Gateway, and forward annotate them to CR-8000 Design Force. The clearance classes can be assigned spacing rules from design rule stacks in your library.
In the CR-8000 Design Gateway constraint browser, select the Utility pulldown, then edit Clearance Class. Enter a new Clearance Class Name. Assign the design rule stack to each clearance class combination. Finally, Forward Annotate to your board.

This allows Engineers to selected parts and drag them directly to their design. Add the additional functionality of high power Signal integrity verification and Power integrity analysis and you have the Ultimate Desktop PCB Engineering solution.
PCB Design Creation - Design Gateway is a platform for logical circuit design and verification of single and multi-board system-level electronic designs. It supports a true system-level circuit design in which individual circuits can be represented and connected as blocks.
Building a competitive product today is much more difficult than a few years ago. Existing PCB-centric design processes are limited to a single PCB and do not provide the necessary tools for today’s competitive product development environment. PCB-centric design processes are falling behind.
