How to handle PCB design constraints without losing your mind



Do the number and types of constraints used in today’s PCB designs drive you crazy? Are you confident that your boards follow the constraints you set?

Capturing, managing, and adhering to all the constraints for fabrication, assembly, and high-speed issues can be problematic and take hours of time. Wouldn't it be great if there were a way to make the process easier?

In this webinar we'll show you how to quickly and easily capture design constraints once – at any point in the design cycle – and be confident that they will be adhered to throughout the design of your product.

What You Will Learn

  • How a spreadsheet-based constraint editing system can help ensure design and first-time success
  • The value of capturing constraints once, in schematic or in layout, from the same user interface
  • How to speed up constraint definition through automatic assignment of differential pairs
  • How graphical aids can compare actual trace lengths to constraints in real time.
