iCD Launches QuickSolver Edition of Stackup Planner


Reading time ( words)

In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd (iCD), Australia, developer of the iCD Design Integrity software, has added the new iCD QuickSolver software to its growing product line. 

“The iCD QuickSolver represents a price-performance breakthrough for field solver technology,” said iCD CEO Barry Olney. “The majority of digital designs these days require controlled impedance transmission lines. But few designers have access to an accurate field solver. We want to empower every PCB designer with this technology by offering a no-frills Stackup Planner at a very affordable price point.” 

The iCD QuickSolver is an inexpensive edition of the popular iCD Stackup Planner that is powered by the same precision 2D BEM field solver and provides everything you need to accurately model the characteristic and differential impedance of multilayer PCBs utilizing blind and buried vias. You can also optionally add an Altium Designer bi-directional interface or license to a USB dongle to move the application between PCs. 

iCD QuickSolver features include: 

  • 2D BEM field solver technology, the most affordable impedance control solution available
  • Powerful inexpensive Stackup Planner, the industry-leading precision planner for eight signal/plane layers
  • Ideal for independent designer, licensed to one PC or a USB dongle
  • Characteristic impedance, edge-coupled and broadside-coupled differential impedance
  • Dual build-up microstrip plus dual symmetric and asymmetric stripline
  • Support for PTH plus blind and buried vias
  • Automatically generates a fabrication drawing in Excel
  • Optional Altium Designer bi-directional interface with design rules export

Additive Manufacturing Requires Additive Design Techniques

05/09/2022 | Luca Gautero, SUSS MicroTec
Although I am not a designer by trade, I want to share my thoughts on what additive manufacturing means for designers, especially how it relates to solder mask. In this article, you will learn what topics I feel are the most important to address.

Additive Design: Same Steps, Different Order

04/12/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We recently spoke with Dave Torp, CEO of Winonics, about the company’s additive and semi-additive processes and what PCB designers need to know if they’re considering designing boards with these new technologies. As Dave explains, additive design is not much different from traditional design, but the steps in the design cycle are out of order, and additive designers must communicate with their fabricators because so much of the new processes are still proprietary.
