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

What Does Intelligent Routing Look Like?

11/27/2019 | Brent Klingforth, Mentor, a Siemens business
Many PCB design projects miss schedule commitments by 70% due to delayed routing and lack of automation. Moreover, due to late-stage design changes, schedules are not met, and the addition of those new items takes 10 times longer or more to incorporate than if changes were added from the beginning. Fortunately, over the past several years, powerful routing capabilities have been added that allow designers to address a number of specific, critical tasks.
