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.

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.

Mike Jouppi Discusses his Drive for Better Thermal Data

01/12/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
If you mention thermal management in a group of PCB designers and design engineers, Mike Jouppi’s name usually pops up. Mike is an engineer and founder of the Thermal Management LLC consulting firm. He spent years updating IPC’s charts on current-carrying capacity, which had been unchanged since the 1950s. I recently caught up with Mike and asked him to give us his views on the state of thermal management, as well as the tools and standards related to thermal design.

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 1

11/07/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Altium held a very successful AltiumLive PCB Design Summit in San Diego, California at the beginning of October for the benefit of their North American design community, and followed it three weeks later with a counterpart European event in Munich. And what an eye-opener it proved to be—literally hundreds of delegates, a superbly organised and managed programme, billed as a completely immersive two-day interactive design experience on a theme of learning, connecting and getting inspired.

Insulectro Teams with Isola to Address Signal Integrity Needs

11/06/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
Insulectro and Isola recently shared a combined booth during PCB West 2017. Insulectro has distributed Isola materials for years, and the companies wanted to focus on Isola’s line-up of high-speed, low-loss material sets. Insulectro’s Chris Hunrath, VP of Technology, and Norm Berry, Director of Laminates and OEM Marketing, sat down with me to discuss the challenges facing signal integrity engineers today, and some of the Isola low-loss, low-Dk materials that can help with their signal integrity requirements. You might find Chris and Norm speaking to a group of PCB designers near you.
