CR-8000 2017 CAD software enhances electrical and electronic co-design at the architectural design phase.
Provides 3D product-centric design with architecture design, concurrent 3D multi-board support, and chip/package/board co-design capabilities. Integrates with DS-2 electronic and electrical design data management platform. Contains more than 150 user-driven enhancements and new features spanning design productivity, rule checking and usability. Support for multi-board EMC now checks return paths on electrical nets that run across multiple boards. Reporting is carried out on a net-by-net basis. Has expanded MCAD co-design by importing figures from a board model created using mechanical CAD. Includes expanded 3D model support when exporting a full multi-board design with an enclosure in 3D PDF format. New functionality enables bump generation in differential pairs while checking differences in length between positive and negative routes. System Planner 2017 adds electrical co-design to architecture design phase and exports directly to E3.series. Improves multi-board system optimization through new module management capabilities. Design module status can be verified to detect updates based on a set of user-defined rules. Partitioning design module across blocks or boards is now possible on a schematic page basis. Reference designator assignments can be made, or auto-generated, during architecture design on a block-by-block basis. Design rule checks can also be applied to manage unassigned or duplicate reference designators. During physical optimization, components within the functional block may be identified and moved as a single unit.
