CR-5000 v. 15 enterprise PCB design software features enhanced collaboration with electronic manufacturing services and simplified implementation of high-speed interfaces. Other new functionality includes routing with impedance control for improved signal integrity management, and day-to-day productivity enhancements.

Lightning module includes new functionality for routing with impedance control that enables engineers to route to Jedec standards and meet DDR3 performance specifications, reducing design iterations and optimizing circuits for highest clock speeds. Routing with impedance control makes it easier to reduce impedance discontinuities in high-speed manual routing, such as lead-in routing specified in JESD21-C for DDR3 memory.

CR-5000 v15Signal integrity management is also boosted through new automatic setup and hold measurements that make eye diagram studies much easier and saves time through the ability to automate data gathering. Engineers can now more easily evaluate key signal timing parameters on the interface before the design reaches prototype stage.

Board Designer module supports latest version of ODB++. Also supports IPC-2581. Additional enhancements include dimension line generation, hole drawing tables to ease design documentation, and an improved interface for Agilent Momentum RF design verification. Supports output of bend/stretch areas for flexible PCB design. System Designer module enhancements include improvements to line inputs and view control for variant components.
