Signal Integrity, Power Integrity, EMC

CR-8000 includes fully integrated simulation and analysis tools to verify all aspects of your single or multi-board designs

A complete simulation and analysis environment

During circuit design, Design Gateway provides embedded simulation, analysis and electrical rules checking.

During PCB layout, the Design Force embedded signal integrity, power integrity, electromagnetic interference

Electromagnetic compatibility tools provide a single environment for all of your design team’s simulation and analysis requirements
