Tech Tip: Using Templates to Generate Area Fills

Menu

When generating area fills, designers must consider the polygon as a work in progress. Using templates to control the automatic generation of area fills allows the design to focus on more critical routing issues.

You must ensure that you are receiving maximum coverage when routing wires when generating simple area fills for large co-planer areas. Sometimes this is overlooked. Creating templates to control area fills in CR-8000 Design Force helps ensure copper is always up to date, meeting relevant design rules and maximum area coverage.

This video explains how using templates to control area fills in CR-8000 Design Force can help ensure copper is always up to date meeting relevant design rules and maximum area coverage.
