By integrating CR-5000 Lightning's automatic routing function and Board Designer's precise and interactive routing function on one platform, the automatic routing function can be used without data conversion. Design Force's powerful automatic support functions contribute to more efficient design team work and the maintenance of a high standard of quality.
Design Force's automatic routing function is equipped with functions such as "trunking" in which an automatic routing algorithm seamlessly supports single-ended, differential and bus routing from the instant the signal to be wired is selected, without selecting a command, "lengthening" which controls routing length based on a variety of routing length constraints, and "Active 45" which automatically generates optimal routing paths following the mouse's movements.
DRAGON EX is a strategic automatic routing system which can be added to Design Force as an option. It provides a wide selection of routing strategies, from the setting of high level routing strategies to routing using automatic support functions. For components which are difficult to pull out such as BGAs, DRAGON Ex's fan-out router detects the optimal pullout point and automatically generates vias all at once, greatly reducing the design work required for large scale BGA routing, which constitutes a bottleneck in routing design.
