Zuken has updated its CADSTAR PCB (printed circuit board) design software. Now included are routing capabilities and Etch Factor Support.
Updates have been made to the Trunk End Router so that improved routing patterns are generated for differential pairs. Coupling is maintained and skew is improved. Now previously manual tasks are carried out automatically – and are significantly closer to the route an expert user would choose themselves, the company states.
Support for Etch Factor definition is available in the Configuration Editor and Constraint Manager. This is compatible with former trapezoidal conductor support, and etching for half-planes is available.
“CADSTAR 17 challenges the view that PCB Desktop software has to be complicated. It builds upon the ease-of-use functionality with new powerful and accessible features. This philosophy helps maintain CADSTAR’s position as the industry’s most-used desktop PCB software,” says Jeroen Leinders, worldwide sales manager, CADSTAR.
