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!

3D Convergence of Multiboard PCB and IC Packaging Design

07/18/2018 | Bob Potock, Zuken
A new generation of 3D multiboard product-level design tools offer major improvements by managing multiboard placement in both 2D and 3D, and enabling co-design of the chip, package and board in a single environment. Multiboard design makes it possible to create and validate a design with any combination of system-on-chips (SOCs), packages, and PCBs as a complete system. Chip-package-board co-design enables designers to optimize routability via pin assignment and I/O placement to minimize layer counts between the package, chip and board. The new design methodology makes it possible to deliver more functional, higher performing and less expensive products to market in less time.

Dave Wiens Discusses Multi-board Design Techniques

07/09/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
For our multi-board design issue, I interviewed Dave Wiens, product marketing manager for Mentor, a Siemens business. We discussed how the multi-board design technique differs from laying out single boards, along with the planning, simulation and analysis processes required to design multi-board systems.

Paving the Way for 400Gb Ethernet and 5G

06/26/2018 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
This article briefly introduces the 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4) and its application in 400 Gigabit Ethernet (400GbE), to support the booming data traffic volume in conjunction with the deployment of 5G mobile communications. Furthermore, this article also highlights the essential pre-layout effort from signal integrity perspective for physical (PHY) link design on a PCB, including material selection, transmission line design and channel simulation to support 56Gbps data rate that paves the way for seamless communication in 400GbE.
