PADS Standard Plus includes all the features of PADS Standard plus signal integrity analysis powered by HyperLynx® technology enabling you to determine routing constraints and verify your routed PCB as well as identify and address potential “hot spots” through thermal analysis that takes into account conduction, convection, and radiation cooling effects.

What? – You’re “THAT designer” that does even EVEN MORE?

Then PADS Standard Plus can deliver EVEN MORE capabilities by offering tools for DFT, DFMA, MCAD Collaboration and even Advanced Packaging if desired.

But lets say you’re “THE designer” –  The one that HAS TO DO IT ALL? – And on the most complex PCB Designs.

If you need a tool with all the horsepower and features of an Enterprise solution that fits all your design needs and your budget – look no further than PADS Professional! PADS Professional utilizes Xpedition® technology that handles the most demanding and complex designs, where other solutions fail. Get all the features and functionality of PADS Standard Plus including high-speed routing and access to the most advanced features like advanced FPGA synthesis, FPGA I/O optimization, unified constraint management, electrical sign-off based on full board DRC screening and signal/power integrity analysis, just for starters. Add to that a best-in-class layout PCB environment featuring concurrent 2D and 3D physical design and a correct-by-construction approach to placement, plane design and routing.

PADS Professional also delivers the industry’s most powerful interactive routing environment for large busses, single ended and differential pair nets AND includes our new ground-breaking sketch routing technology! Whats that?, you need even more advanced fabrication design features including HDI, RF, flex circuitry and embedded components?  – Done!  Check out PADS Professional today!

Communication, Part 6: The Importance of Technology Fit

11/08/2019 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
In the final installment of this series on how PCB fabricators and designers can better communicate, Bob Chandler from CA Design and Mark Thompson from Prototron Circuits discuss the importance of “technology fit” and how this concept impacts the synergy of the two parties involved.

Pulsonix 10.5 Development Driven by Customer Demand

06/27/2019 | Barry Matties, Publisher, I-Connect007
I recently spoke with Bob Williams, the managing director of Pulsonix, about the release of the EDA tool’s version 10.5. Bob explained how the company had made the tool more intuitive based on user input, and he discussed some of the more cutting-edge functionality not normally found in competitively priced tools.

Stitching Capacitor: Crosstalk Mitigation for Return Path Discontinuity

06/13/2019 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
When the return path is broken due to the switching of reference planes with different potential, e.g., from ground to power or vice versa after layer transition on PCB, the return current might detour and propagate on a longer path, which causes a rise in loop inductance. This might lead to the sharing of a common return path by different signals that pose a high risk of interference among the signals due to higher mutual inductance. This interference results in signal crosstalk. To mitigate the crosstalk due to return path discontinuity (RPD), stitching capacitors are mounted on the PCB to serve as a bridge between the two reference planes of interest on different PCB layers.
