Zuken (Munich, Germany & Westford, MA) introduced a new intelligent autorouting solution called the Dragon Routing Platform, which is said to move autorouting to a new standard that combines intelligence and a methodology-driven approach.
The Routing Strategy Environment (RSE) applies all the knowledge required for the latest high-speed boards with a guided step-by-step process to deliver right-first-time results in shorter time frames. The easy set-up and control of all the routing tools gives general PCB designers more power, says the company. The RSE uses a Routing Consultant to guide users though the process. The initial stages begin by working with the user to define the strategy, which later empowers the user to easily and effectively create a board that is right the first-time.
The Routing Consultant will analyze designs for potential routing problems and suggest alternative routing strategies to overcome them, performing automatic expert checks and making suggestions on actions to fix potential problems. The Dragon Router can be called upon to analyze any current strategy and suggest changes or a new strategy, to deliver higher quality results in less time.
Plus, for advanced high-speed boards, routing algorithms for routing tasks such as fan-out generation, 45-degree single net routing, and differential pair routing are incorporated.
The Dragon Router is available in the next version of CR-5000 Lightning, Zuken’s high-speed module for enterprise-wide design.
