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.
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. Intelligent multi-board design is inherently supported in the 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.

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
