Curved Trunking: New SI Routing Feature for Differential Pairs and Busses in CADSTAR

trunking si routing

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. A while ago, the introduction of the curved corner style for routing trunks in CADSTAR […]
