Electronic design is growing each and every year as more companies introduce electronics into formerly mechanical-only products. As such, there's a mad rush to be the first to market with trendsetting products. This doesn't exclude the traditional electrical or electrical/mechanical products! With IoT becoming a larger part of people lives, new companies are emerging at an extraordinary rate with revolutionary product concepts. To stay in the game as a new company or one that's been around 50 years, you need to design faster, with high level of quality.
One of the areas that will assist the do-it-all electrical designer or even the focused PCB designer is routing automation. Using automated routing capabilities can reduce PCB routing time up to 80%. With modern tools you don't have to rely on in-depth design rule definition to make the router do the right thing; guided auto-routing, like that in PADS Professional, allows the young or experienced designer to significantly reduce routing time.
What You Will Learn:
- Why every designer should be using routing automation regardless of how simple the design
- What components are part of routing automation and how each can be used
- How to set rules for proper interactive routing
