ExpressPCB Announces Upgrades


Reading time ( words)

ExpressPCB is excited to announce several enhancements to its ExpressPCB Plus Layout Software.  These upgrades to the Plus software will allow our customers to continue designing their next project with greater success. New finer pitch parameters are now available in version 2.0 allowing 5 mil trace and space routing, 6 mil finished vias (10 mil drilled holes) and up to 6 copper layers.  In addition, we have removed the size/shape constraint on our popular Miniboard Plus products, no longer are you restricted to a 2.5” x 3.8” rectangle. The new Miniboard parameters will allow you to build almost any shape up to 10 square inches per board (some restrictions apply). 

“As the electronic industry heads towards tighter pitch components, smaller and faster processors and shrinking PCB sizes, our customers began to express a need to have their layout software and PCB manufacturing provider keep up with the trend. We have gladly accepted this challenge and this release of ExpressPCB Plus gives customers that flexibility.  While we were under the hood we also managed to update some of the other pain points that our customers have shared with us as well,” said Michael Hebda, ExpressPCB product manager. Although we are not yet done improving our software, this was exciting enough we had to get the version 2.0 updates into our customers’ hands. One of the most requested items coming in Q2 2020 is the schematic link.  Stay tuned for more enhancements coming in 2020.”
