Zuken unveils advanced high-speed design features for its recently launched eCADSTAR connected PCB design platform. eCADSTAR Advanced HS extends eCADSTAR’s connected 3D PCB design capabilities with high-speed routing tools, such as length and delay-based impedance and skew control and comprehensive constraint management capabilities. With the release of eCADSTAR Advanced HS, eCADSTAR is now available in four complementary bundles that can be easily combined to meet individual profiles.

“As products become more complex and connected, high-speed design is a key part of the design and manufacturability of printed circuit boards (PCBs). High-speed components and interfaces are at the heart of today’s smart and internet-connected products, and they demand advanced requirements for layout and routing,” says John Berrie, signal integrity expert, Zuken Tech Center, Bristol. “eCADSTAR Advanced HS delivers those capabilities in an easy to use environment so that PCB designers can deliver exceptional high-speed design quality.”

With a consistent user interface from design entry through physical layout and a central constraint browser, eCADSTAR Advanced HS provides built-in capabilities to address the complex details of high-speed layout and routing. Constraints can be specified in the schematic, and the physical design tools, or as design rules stacks eCADSTAR’s built-in constraint browser. eCADSTAR’s high-speed capabilities include:

Impedance controlled routing: In eCADSTAR, hardware engineers can constrain both single-ended and differential impedance to meet constraints on each board layer.

Length, delay and skew based routing: eCADSTAR works with both, length and delay constraints, including built-in simulation for detailed investigation of effects such as signal-to-signal coupling.

Topology control: High-speed signals need a routing topology that adheres to specified constraints. eCADSTAR enables topology control with a wide selection of templates and instant visualization to make control as fast and reliable as possible.

Handling of differential signals: In eCADSTAR differential signals can be routed with the assistance of automatic, clean end routing, specific design rules, and constraints.

Configurations and pricing

With modular bundles, eCADSTAR Base, Advanced 3D, Advanced HS, and Ultimate eCADSTAR can be configured in a wide variety of options to fit individual needs. eCADSTAR promotional pricing starts at under $2,500.
