eCADSTAR is now offering users an integrated 3D mechanical check. In the library, we simply pair our footprints with models and in our PCB design we can import mechanical data and run collision and clearance checks. We can check from devices to mechanical data and from track elements to mechanical data.
In this video we’re going to take a quick look at the versatility eCADSTAR offers designers with respect to Thermal pad connections. This is a great example. Here we have a net with 4 different pad sizes. The smallest being […]
CADSTAR customers with a valid maintenance contract can now requestCADSTAR License Authorisations by completing and submitting the form within the Zuken Global Support website.
It’s that time of year again. Yearly performance appraisals, staff planning and looking to the year ahead. But are you and your team ready for the new year? Do you have the in-house skills available? Are your team ready to take on […]
Most CADSTAR users rely on the predefined menu system to access program features, but never realise they can set up a few shortcuts that save you time and frustration!
PCB designers working with advanced and complex designs are constantly pushing the boundaries to satisfy the signal integrity of routed differential pairs and busses. Those who work with flexible and flex-rigid PCB designs are perhaps the most demanding of all. […]
We often hear about reverse engineering within mechanical engineering, but how is reverse engineering deployed in electronics and why? Firstly, what is Reverse Engineering? When we hear the phrase ‘reverse engineering’ being applied in an electronic product environment, the default […]
The mind boggles when you look around at the range of electronic equipment we use on a daily basis. This technology is not just relied upon but is often taken for granted and often abused as a result. Case in […]
Did you know that CADSTAR supports the import of Schematic and PCB designs from a range of CAD packages including PADS, PCAD, Orcad, Protel and Altium? This is achieved using the CADSTAR Design Migration Tool that you can download from […]
The process of PCB design and manufacture of printed circuit boards is a complicated and extensive process and it’s sometime easy to forget the variety of tasks that are completed as a result. In this blog we take you through […]
