CADENCE AND ZUKEN SIGN PACT FOR HIGH-SPEED PCB DESIGN/ANALYSIS.
Under the agreement, Zuken will integrate and resell Cadence's industry-standard SPECCTRAQuest(TM) interconnect designer, as well as products in the SPECCTRA(R) PCB design-tool family, with Zuken's high-end CR-5000 PCB design environment.
The two companies will work closely together to develop tight integration between their respective products, targeting customers in consumer-oriented, mixed-signal PCB design. The Cadence products will become part of the PCB design process and flow for CR-5000 users, providing capabilities for topology exploration, constraint definition, and high-speed signal implementation.
Zuken's CR-5000 is an advanced PCB design and layout solution for digital, analog and mixed-signal board design. Fully integrated with complementary Zuken tools such as Route Editor and System Designer, CR-5000 features comprehensive artwork creation, heterogeneous network use, integrated component placement, automatic and interactive routing, CAM data generation, component process planning, and design and library management.
The Cadence SPECCTRAQuest interconnect designer is an engineering environment focused on high-speed system and board design needs. The product merges functional and physical design abstractions into a single intuitive environment to let engineers continuously explore and resolve performance-related constraints throughout the high-speed design process.
The SPECCTRAQuest tool allows designers to make tradeoffs between timing, signal integrity, electromagnetic interference (EMI), thermal constraints and other issues to achieve optimum design performance before committing a design to detailed placement and routing.
Zuken, Inc., founded in 1976, provides total solutions for increasing productivity, from the design phase to the manufacturing phase, for worldwide electronics companies.
