PCB Design Creation

Design Gateway

Design Gateway is an engineering platform that brings extensive design, simulation and analysis capabilities to your desktop. It allows companies to manage and make optimal use of engineering design data across all company and team sites. Intelligent multi-board design is inherently supported in Design Gateway.

“With design teams around the world, we need a PCB and system-level design platform that allows our teams to work concurrently and also deals with complex multi-board designs. Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Gateway and Design Force does this and more.”
– Jerry Murray, PCB design team leader

Design Gateway provides complete system circuit engineering. Native and interactive integration with a wide range of signal integrity (SI), analog, digital, and multi-technology verification tools is provided. Through this it also supports the co-simulation of analog and digital functional blocks and programmable devices. Design Gateway enables design re-use, allowing engineers to use proven and tested logical circuits from previous projects.

Central constraint management: No errors or rework as all rules and constraints are stored and accessed from one location
Embedded simulation, analysis and electrical rules checking so you can detect design errors before they propagate
Design reuse: Leverage existing reuse library of known-good circuits from previous designs
Reduce component research time with component browsing to identify existing approved components and vendors, improving component reuse and purchasing power
Initiate system-level circuit design from System Planner and exchange information at any point in the design process

Lower Manufacturing Costs with XJTAG's New Design Gateway Plugin

XJTAG has partnered with Zuken create a new plugin for Design Gateway and is offering it free of charge. The plugin, called XJTAG DFT Assistant, helps to validate correct JTAG chain connectivity, while displaying boundary scan access and coverage onto the schematic diagram through full integration with Design Gateway. So if you are using boundary scan today or want to incorporate it in your next design, the XJTAG DFT Assistant plugin is a tool you should be using.

Top Tips for Multi-board Design Using a System-level Approach

In my time working with companies in the automotive, telecom/wireless and defense industries, I often hear of the many issues facing design teams as they tackle projects made-up of multiple PCBs connected by flexible PCBs, cables, or with a backplane board. Often, the challenge arises when defining and implementing the interconnects across boards, and managing changes throughout the course of the PCB design process. Today I’m going to share with you, my top tips for overcoming these issues.
