One of the PCB design and layout tools 911EDA supports is PADs PCB layout and schematic capture. The advanced layout capabilities of PADS® allow you to simply design and layout both simple and complex circuit boards, including: high-speed, dense, analog and/or digital, or RF. PADS has everything you need to place and route efficiently and easliy, whereas ensuring your PCB meets your design goals and requirements.
For companies we provide PADs layout services to without a PADs licence, you can download a free PADs viewer.
Get your design done quickly with powerful physical design re-use capabilities, 3D viewing, easy-to-use manufacturing prep, and optionally available automated advanced packaging tools for bare die design. With full cross-probing between the schematic and layout, PADS can support you in getting your work done quickly, with fewer re-spins and a better finished product.
Meet Today’s Design Challenges
PADS provides you everything you need to design and route PCBs efficiently. Begin with component information, esign rules, and net constraints outlined within the schematic.
Placement canh be driven from the schematic, with full cross-probing for real-time synchronization. PADS includes powerful group component placement, with component rotation all the way down to a tenth of a degree.
Complex split and mixed-plane capabilities assist you in overcoming designand routing challenges. You are able to route PCBs with a balanced combination of manual and interactive routing. Advanced rules make designing high- speed PCBs quick and accurate.
Easy, Effective Interactive Routing
Whether you are working with simple or complex designs, PADS helps you quickly and interactively route boards with ease and confidence.
PADS interactive routing is very versatile, allowing you to decide on how you want to drive your routing. You can enable and disable options, like trace and via plowing, smoothing, pad entry, and trace-length monitoring, as you route. You can also route traces so they follow existing traces, board outlines, or keepout boundaries to form irregular and complicated trace with ease.
Design Rule Checking
Design rule checking (DRC) adheres to any or all constraints, making certain that no rule is violated and that problems will not have to be fixed after design completion. Clearance conflicts are simply resolved with advanced push and shove capabilities that greatly simplify the routing of dense boards. Interactive routing handles high-speed nets, differential pairs, and matched-length groups easily, allowing you to satisfy all necessary high-speed constraints.
