Intercept Technology Makes Strides with New Pantheon PCB/Hybrid/RF Layout Software Version


Reading time ( words)

Intercept Technology Inc., a leader in EDA engineering and layout applications, has launched a major new enhancement release of its Pantheon PCB layout software, which includes specialized RF and Hybrid design flows. Complementing this new Pantheon version is a major enhancement release of Intercept’s Mozaix CAE schematic design software. The Mozaix version 5.0 and Pantheon version 7.2 releases are paired together with unified user interfaces for increased productivity for existing users, and for shorter ramp up time for new users. Both new versions are fully compliant on Microsoft Windows 10 and Linux Redhat 6.

Pantheon’s new and ultra-flexible group functionality is great for floorplanning, managing sections of via stitching, designating circuitry groups, bus routing, and much more.  

Both the Pantheon and Mozaix main windows have been optimized to have placement of similar icon toolbars in the same places in both applications, and window designs have been upgraded in Mozaix to include Pantheon’s streamlined design for maximum screen space. The addition of PDF output options in the latest version of Mozaix is a precursor to future planned enhancements for Pantheon’s integrated drawing and documentation capabilities, under development now.

“Clean, easy to use UX has been our emphasis for years.” says Abby Monaco, Director of Products and Marketing for Intercept. “This latest stride forward provides better usability overall, with plenty of new tools to continue to simplify complex design issues.”

Intercept’s EDA software provides users with scalable design and engineering tailored for simpler designs to the most complex PCB, RF, Hybrid and mixed signal boards, panels, and panel arrays. Its software suite includes schematic, layout with DFM checking, and library management software, all complemented by powerful interfaces to mechanical, manufacturing, analysis, simulation, RF modeling, and documentation. Migration to Intercept’s products is made easy with its offering of over 30 database translators of various CAD, CAE, and library formats. Contact sales@intercept.com to request a free 30 day trial, or to speak with a sales representative. 

Mozaix CAE Schematic version 5.0 unifies its user flow with Pantheon for fast adoption, improved design time, and as always, new features guaranteed to make schematic editing as easy as possible.

What Happens When You Assume?

07/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
What is design with manufacturing and what does true DWM look like in operation? In this interview, I-Connect007 columnist Dana Korf explains what it will take to achieve total communication among all the stakeholders in the PCB development cycle. He also stresses the need for everyone involved in PCB design and manufacturing to stop making assumptions, even at the risk of being labeled as “that guy” who asks too many questions.

Master the Art of Communication With Manufacturers

06/30/2022 | Kyle Burk, KBJ Engineering
As mentioned in the May issue of Design007 Magazine, design is performed, at times, in a vacuum. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Whenever circumstances allow, design should be performed by communicating with all stakeholders throughout the design process, hence the emphasis on the word with in DWM. Communication can occur through personal correspondence such as email and voice conversations or through more formal design meetings—in person or through videoconferencing. No matter which means of communication you prefer, it’s important to communicate early and often with stakeholders involved in the downstream processes as you bring your project to realization.

Altimade Puts Designers and Manufacturers Together

06/24/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Despite all of the talk about the need for communication between designers and manufacturers, many PCB designers still do not talk with their manufacturers for a variety of reasons. Altium and MacroFab aim to change this dynamic. In this interview, Ted Pawela, chief ecosystem officer of Altium and head of Altium’s Nexar Business Unit, and MacroFab CEO Misha Govshteyn, discuss the new Altimade manufacturing service that Altium is introducing in partnership with MacroFab. Ted and Misha provide an overview of the Altimade process, how it links designers to fabricators, assembly providers, and component distributors, and they explain how it could pave the way for true design with manufacturing, or DWM.
