Advanced PCB Design Software
Product-centric 3D PCB Design Platform
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.
CR-8000 is a product-centric design solution that provides the tools to optimize a design at both the product and PCB design level. Product-centric design processes provide architectural validation of the design against product requirements. Validating the product architecture against the product requirements significantly reduces delivery risk.
CR-8000: From architectural planning to physical implementation
Partition complex systems into multiple connected PCBs
Manage IC, package and PCB in one single environment
Control releases, revisions and configurations with integrated data management
CR-8000 Design Solutions
System Level - from Concept to Manufacture
Hardware Architecture System Design
System Planner is the industry’s only hardware architecture design and validation tool that is fully integrated with detailed PCB and wire harness design. As products become more complex, optimizing the architecture choices are more critical than ever.
3D Multi-board PCB Design
The highest performing board design and analysis solution, Design Force supports single board, multi-board and chip-package-board interconnect analysis and optimization. Combining the 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.
PCB Design Creation
Design Gateway is an engineering platform that brings extensive design, simulation and analysis capabilities to your desktop. It allows companies to manage and make optimal use of engineering design data across all company and team sites. An intelligent multi-board design is inherently supported in Design Gateway.
PCB Design for Manufacturing
DFM Center enables designers to handle the increasing complexity and diversity of today’s PCBs, while ensuring high final product quality, and accurate outputs for the manufacturing processes. With a robust set of features for data preparation and embedded verification to ensure manufacturing specifications are met, DFM Center addresses the challenges of the manufacturing process.
Simulation and Analysis
CR-8000 is a complete design environment that includes fully integrated simulation and analysis tools to verify your single or multi-board designs.
FPGA Pin Optimization
Zuken’s 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.

Designing the panel is as important as the layout of the PCB itself. When designing a PCB, often the panelization is left up to the manufacturer. Why? They are trying to optimize material usage and get as many boards on a panel and still conform to high yields and quality. In cases where larger corporations design the panel design in-house, their focus is to have better control over the entire assembly process.
The fast signal switching times of today’s digital systems require particular attention to the signal integrity during design to ensure reliable operation and EMI control.
There is one thing that all design engineers will agree on. Creating and gathering all the required data for a release to the PLM system is error-prone and can be a “messy”. We all understand the value of releasing our design data to the corporate PLM system, but a best practice design process dictates multiple release profiles with different purposes and different data requirements.

System Planner provides a system-level design environment for the architectural planning and optimization of electronic systems and products. It enables engineers to optimize partitioning and performance of multi-board systems and maximize design reuse, while eliminating the need to re-enter up-front planning data into the design tools during detailed design.
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.
Design Force combines traditional 2D design with native 3D design and the latest human interface techniques, accelerated graphics and almost instantaneous rendering and refreshing. It is the fastest, most effective PCB design solution available today. Design Force enables design teams to layout their designs in the context of a complete system or product.
Design Force offers an intuitive, integrated environment for designing single and multi-die packages for wire-bond, flip-chip, and high density advanced packaging. Designers can start designs with early prototype input of chip and package data from the library, reuse data from IC layout tools, and take advantage of parametric wizards to streamline the creation of the system
