Creating BGA Fan-outs Manually Can Account for 25-30% of Your PCB Design Time – Let’s Automate
Hello PCB Designers,
As I am preparing for ZDAC, I couldn’t help but wonder about those users that have access to the CADSTAR P.R.Editor application but do not use it for its fan-out capability. If this sounds like you then please consider this…
Creating manual fan-outs can account for 25-30% of your design time!
Did you know you can save fan-outs and escape patterns and reuse them over and over again?
– For the entire design too – so this means that your next design shouldn’t take as long.
Fanning out high pin-count BGAs can be a simple one click operation, and creating escape patterns from the fan-outs can be done automatically as well. How long did you spend on your last PCB design on the BGA components alone?
Over the past several years I have taught many introductory classes on P.R.Editor. I always enjoying seeing the looks of wonder and satisfaction on students’ faces when they go through the fan-out exercises and realize the time savings potential that has been right at their fingertips all along. Attend Z-DAC this year and you can learn the same techniques. The session I’m presenting, Conquering High Pin-count Devices with Fan-out and Escape Routing, will open up new territory in your PCB design process.
