Digital Engineering: A System of Systems Design Approach

CR-8000 moves the architecture-optimized design seamlessly into detailed design, preserving all the architectural decisions without any data re-entry. Using CR-8000’s 3D PCB design platform, the system can be implemented and verified as a multi-board system with the MCAD enclosure.

Lifecycle Insights: Zuken's Design Solution for Multi-board Systems

It wasn’t that long ago that PCBs were seen as a commodity. It seemed as if the design software tools had caught up with the complexities of the boards. Fast forward to today, and multi-board systems present a whole new level of complexity that demand new capabilities. Zuken’s CR-8000 is one of the few suites of ECAD software that has added those new capabilities along the way.

I-Connect007: Getting Signal Integrity Right by Design

As clock frequencies increase and active devices and interconnect traces shrink and are placed ever closer together, signal integrity (SI) becomes an increasing challenge. Today, SI is typically addressed late in the design process after the PCB layout has been completed by performing complex and time-consuming 3D extractions and simulations for high-speed lines.
