CR-5000 Board Designer ScreenshotZuken’s CR-5000 Board Designer provides an intuitive, integrated environment for designing PCBs, BGAs and MCMs. It serves to guide the user, via a common user interface, from circuit design through to floorplanning, placement and routing, analysis and into manufacturing. Rules are constant throughout the design process and are dynamically linked to ensure flexibility and consistency.

CR-5000 R14 – The Thrill of a New Release

As a former PCB designer I always looked forward to the next release of the software that I was designing with. Like a kid unwrapping a gift, I would open up the What’s New HTML file and read through all the amazing new goodies designed to make my job that much easier. To this day, as an AE for Zuken, I still have that childlike spirit when I get my first glimpse of what’s new in CR-5000 and this year was no exception when I checked out Revision 14…

Overcome Design Challenges

How To Overcome Design Challenges Associated with Gigabit Signalling and the Ubiquitous LVDS in High-Speed PCB Design (Part 1)

Over the next few weeks I’m going to talk to you about the high-speed design challenges associated with Low Voltage Differential Signalling (LVDS) and how to overcome them. Today I’ll start by mentioning some applications of LVDS and some basics about how it works. Next week I’ll share my knowledge on effective and efficient PCB routing of LVDS signals.

5 Reasons Why Viewing Your Electronics Design (ECAD) in 3D Will Reduce MCAD Design Costs and Time to Market

If you’re a PCB designer, electrical engineer, or mechanical designer, you know that communication between ECAD and MCAD departments can be tedious, and a real pain in the neck sometimes. It’s almost like you finish your design, throw it over the wall into the next cubical…and then what? You’ve probably also learned – the hard way – that reworking your designs over and over costs the company time AND money. We believe there are 5 key reasons why you should be viewing your electronics design in 3D and intend to demonstrate this in an upcoming webinar.
