PADS Webinar: Reduce Design Time Using Routing Automation


Reading time ( words)

Electronic design is growing each and every year as more companies introduce electronics into formerly mechanical-only products. As such, there's a mad rush to be the first to market with trendsetting products. This doesn't exclude the traditional electrical or electrical/mechanical products! With IoT becoming a larger part of people lives, new companies are emerging at an extraordinary rate with revolutionary product concepts. To stay in the game as a new company or one that's been around 50 years, you need to design faster, with high level of quality.

One of the areas that will assist the do-it-all electrical designer or even the focused PCB designer is routing automation.  Using automated routing capabilities can reduce PCB routing time up to 80%.  With modern tools you don't have to rely on in-depth design rule definition to make the router do the right thing; guided autorouting, like that in PADS Professional, allows the young or experienced designer to significantly reduce routing time.

Presenters are Brent Klingforth, technical marketing marketing engineer with Mentor, and John McMillan, a member of the PADS technical marketing team at Mentor.

What You Will Learn

  • Why every designer should be using routing automation regardless of how simple the design
  • What components are part of routing automation and how each can be used
  • How to set rules for proper interactive routing

HyperLynx: There’s an App for That

08/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
I recently spoke with Todd Westerhoff, product marketing manager for signal integrity software tools at Siemens. We discussed a new capability called HyperLynx Apps that offers a new take on traditional signal and power integrity analysis, and how that fits in with the Siemens plan to put SI and PI tools into the hands of more designers early in the design cycle.

Webinar Review: Thermal Integrity of High-Performance PCB Design

08/01/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Electrical and mechanical engineers may be working on the same product development teams, but they speak different languages, and they have completely different objectives. As a result, these folks almost never use the same software tools. But Cadence’s new Celsius Thermal Solver is an exception to the rule. In a new CadenceTECHTALK webinar, “How Static and Dynamic IR Drop Analysis Can Help PCB Designs and Challenges,” product manager Melika Roshandell and SerDes SI/PI engineer Karthik Mahesh Rao explain how the EE and ME can both use the Celsius Thermal Solver to achieve their disparate objectives.

The Great Divide in PCB Simulation Software

07/26/2022 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
Today’s PCB design engineers have more layout and analysis tools at their disposal than ever before. Over the years we’ve seen layout tools become more automated, rules-driven, and more integrated. Now we even have integration between design tools from different vendors and ranging across domains, starting with basic circuit design, and spanning up to PLM and ERP integration. It really is a great time to be a designer.
