CADSTAR for Electronic Design Engineers
Your PCB design challenges require innovative solutions, so being able to capture them in a fast, effective, error-free manner is critical.
CADSTAR offers a range of products that support your creativity including intelligent Schematic Capture with integrated constraints definition, CADSTAR FPGA for HDL development and verification with Aldec© solutions, various PCB Layout options that enable viewing, placement planning and full layout, through to pre- and post-layout Signal Integrity analysis.
Central to the design engineers requirement is CADSTAR Schematic that provides you with a flexible, yet powerful, design platform incorporating:
- your choice of design methodology that lets you design at the Symbol, Part, Block or Sheet level with a multi-layer hierarchical or multi-sheet design environment
- an intelligent connective database that accurately captures your design intent and maintains design integrity throughout the CADSTAR flow
- a fully customisable design environment with the same GUI in Schematic, PCB Layout, Library Editor and Routing environments
- a range of tools to help you define, simulate and manage your design data
CADSTAR's range of PCB Layout tools allow the design engineer to define critical design parameters such as layer stack, spacing class rules, area definition and critical placement, yet leave the time-consuming task of routing and manufacturing preparation to their colleagues or design service providers.
