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

Altium Prepares for Munich Show as Growth Continues

01/17/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
It’s been just two months since the AltiumLive event drew several hundred designers to San Diego, California, and Altium is already gearing up for the next show in Munich, Germany (January 15–17, 2019). I recently spoke with Chris Donato, VP of global sales for Altium, about the upcoming AltiumLive show as well as the company’s growth over the past few years.

January 2019 Issue of Design007 Magazine Available Now

01/15/2019 | I-Connect007
The component shortage is getting crazy. Some PCB designers are finding their favorite capacitors on 50-week and 80-week lead times, or worse. How do you design a board today when the components you need won’t be available for a year or more? In the January 2019 issue of Design007 Magazine, we asked our expert contributors to explain the current component shortage, as well as some of the workarounds that can help you get your next design out the door sooner rather than later.

A Fractal Conversation with Jim Howard and Greg Lucas

01/15/2019 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Veteran PCB technologists Jim Howard and Greg Lucas have made an interesting discovery: Certain shapes of copper planes make a PCB run more efficiently than other shapes, a process they dubbed fractal design. It doesn’t appear to cost a penny more, and testing suggests that fractal design techniques could eliminate edge noise. Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy asked Jim and Greg to discuss the fractal design process, and the advantages of using this technique.
