PCB subsystem architecture design
PCB Subsystem and IC Packaging Design
Zuken’s CR-8000 is the most advanced PCB design platform in the industry with architecture design and verification, multi-board PCB layout with MCAD integration, SI/PI analysis, and chip/package/board co-design. CR-8000 is for your most challenging PCB subsystem designs.
What CR-8000 can do for you
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
PCB Subsystem Architecture and Verification
System Planner is the industry’s only hardware architecture design and verification tool that is fully integrated with detailed PCB and wire harness design. As products become more complex, optimizing the architecture is more critical than ever.
System Planner combines four disciplines into one design and analysis experience. Design multi-board systems with imported MCAD enclosures. Floor plan your design across multiple boards for optimal routing and connectivity. Verify cost and weight targets with parametric analysis. Move your design seamlessly to a detailed design.System Planner
PCB Subsystem Design
As product complexity grows, PCB design must be considered in the context of the subsystem. A PCB subsystem design platform includes support multi-board design and analysis, MCAD integration, and wire harness design. CR-8000 goes beyond the subsystem to include chip/package/board co-design.
As companies move to Digital Engineering and model-based design processes, the need for a subsystem design solution is critical. Detailed design teams will be handed a subsystem for implementation, not a PCB. CR-8000 is built for subsystem implementation.Design Force
Signal, Power, and EMI Analysis
Today’s complex boards or multi-board systems require detailed planning and analysis. CR-8000 provides you with all the tools to build high fidelity boards with integrated signal and power integrity analysis with pre-layout planning. Full board EMI analysis for fast and efficient EMI screening.
Third-party integrations with Ansys and Keysight bring additional capabilities from the industry leaders.Analysis
Integrated IC Package Design
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.IC Packaging
Engineering Library & Data Management
PLM systems are excellent at managing manufacturing data. But companies need to manage component libraries and work-in-process data on a day-to-day basis prior to release for manufacturing. Zuken’s DS-CR provides WIP design data management, design collaboration, project management, design re-use, “where-used” traceability, and much more.
DS-CR is also fully integrated with leading PLM systems for the manufacturing hand-off or component information synchronization. Component information can be automatically synchronized with supply chain partners.DS-CR
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.DFM Center
Wire Harness Design Support
As products get more complicated, the siloed approach to detailed design is missing the mark. Wire harness pin assignments are commonly out of sync with the PCB. A subsystem design approach including PCB, wire harness, and MCAD eliminates those common errors.
Many companies complete the PCB prior to the harness design. Zuken has embraced this approach by using a standard PCB manufacturing output, IPC-2581, to design the wire harness. Zuken’s E3.series imports IPC-2581 directly from CR-8000 eliminating design errors.E3.series

One of the biggest problems facing companies that design and produce electronic products is component obsolescence and availability. There is nothing worse than finding out that there is a supply issue with a design component at a late-stage design review or early pilot run.
This webinar showcases how a leading-edge hardware design process bridges the challenging gaps that occur between analysis and layout design.
This webinar will explore the architecture optimization process using functional design, PCB planning, space planning, and parametric targets. Learn how architecture optimization can improve your product design quality.
This webinar will explore a high-speed design process in CR-8000 that utilizes a constraint browser, topology template, crosstalk estimation, signal and power integrity simulations.
In this session, we will review some of the new features that have been added in the CR-8000 Design Force and offer some explanation of how these additions will benefit our customers within their design flows.
