CR-5000 Physical Design
Intuitive layout tools for complex PCB design challenges
CR-5000 includes intuitive layout tools, fully integrated with system design and analysis as well as layout verification, enabling an interactive work flow between schematic entry and board layout. The powerful placement and routing tools of CR-5000 are optimised for speed and accuracy, tackling today’s complex PCB design challenges.
Layout, Placement & Routing
CR-5000 Board Designer facilitates the intelligent and smooth development of printed circuit boards, allowing the designer to quickly and easily create, re-use or adapt designs. Everyday tasks are made intuitive and efficient for complex placement patterns, speeding up the most challenging implementations. Advanced interactive placement and routing tools are available – as well as fast automatic concurrent placement and automatic routing, capable of simultaneously routing multiple nets.
CR-5000 Constraint Manager guides users through a fully integrated, constraints-driven design process to meet high-speed performance requirements, eliminating unnecessary prototypes and re-engineering cycles. It provides an easy-to-use spread-sheet-like user interface, supporting constraints sharing and updating, and cross-probing to schematics and layout.
Parallel Layout & Analysis
CR-5000 Lightning provides a fully integrated, complete signal integrity, power integrity, and EMC verification toolset. What-if analyses for changes to the layer stack, different track widths or track-to-track spacing, can be easily performed for optimising single-ended or differential impedance, and crosstalk effects.
FPGA and PCB Co-Design
CR-5000 Graphical Pin Manager offers a straightforward FPGA and PCB co-design flow, from top-level HDL description to schematic symbols, as well as to the physical I/O information for layout, thus reducing design cycle time and optimising system performance. It interfaces directly with state-of-the-art FPGA design tools Altera Quartus II, Xilinx ISE, Actel Libero, and Lattice ispLEVER.
CR-5000 also supports design re-use, allowing engineers to re-utilise proven and tested logical circuits, as well as layouts, from previous projects.
CR-5000 Components Manager facilitates parts library management for electronic design. Standard symbols and components can be obtained from the library installed with CR-5000, and rapid creation of corporate-specific parts can be generated through the symbol and component wizards available in Components Manager.
CR-5000 provides a documentation system for creating PDF documents configured to company requirements, with automatically generated bookmarks/hyperlinks for all parts.
