CADSTAR PCB Design SoftwareCADSTAR PCB design software is a complete design environment for the designing of PCBs – from initial concept through to product realization.

With a unified suite of applications, engineers can seamlessly define, visualize, implement and verify their designs. Optimized for the typical small and mid-sized design team, it also appeals to individual all-rounders and corporations operating across multiple sites.

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!

Electronic Component Datasheet Search Engine

Imagine Your Favourite Internet Search Engine, but for Datasheets

Finding electronic component datasheets isn’t always easy. Actually, let’s be frank for a moment, there are occasions where it can be an incredibly frustrating process. Finding the right information can be the most time-consuming element of PCB footprint and schematic creation. In fact, a study by Aberdeen Group* found that engineers can spend up to 50% of their time on component-related activities  – which is a lot of time away from actually designing PCBs.
