3D Design TechnologyA new generation of 3D multi-board product-level design tools manages multi-board placement in both 2D and 3D and enables co-design of the chip, package and board in a single environment. Multi-board design makes it possible to create and validate a design with any combination of system-on-chips (SoC), packages and PCBs as a complete system. Chip-package-board co-design enables designers to optimize routability via pin assignment, and I/O placement to minimize layer counts between the package, chip and board. The new design methodology makes it possible to deliver more functional, higher performing and less expensive products to market in less time.

3D Experience

The Top Three Things Engineers Use 3D for in CADSTAR

We live in a 3D world (OK, four if you count time). Over a decade ago 3D made a comeback in cinemas. And in the world of engineering, most mechanical design engineers have worked in 3D for decades. But it’s only relatively recently that electrical/electronic engineers have been able to fully join the 3D world – and wow, what a difference it’s made!

E/E Design Process Evolution with MBSE

E/E Design Process Evolution with MBSE

This is an exciting time in the product development world. Increasing product complexity is driving the need for a design process evolution. Not long ago the detailed design process was the centerpiece of product development. But the need for functional and physical design accuracy is forcing the product development process to evolve. In response, the product development process is both converging and expanding.

Advanced Packaging with CR-8000's Design Force

Advanced Packaging with Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force

Advanced packaging techniques such as system-in-package (SiP), fan-out wafer-level packaging (FOWLP), 3D die stacks, etc. have been around for over a decade, yet with any other EDA design tool, it is still a tedious, time consuming, and error-prone process to implement these designs. It seems surprising that there are so few reliable EDA solutions out there, but CR-8000 Design Force is definitely the tool to look to when tackling advanced package design! Take a look below and see why.
