Mentor Graphics Corp., Wilsonville, OR, has introduced the first phase of a new systems design enterprise platform for printed circuit board (PCB) systems. The Xpedition™platform combines an intuitive design environment with designer-driven automation. The Xpedition PCB layout technology enables placement planning for performance and reuse; efficient routing of complex, dense topologies; and electromechanical optimization. The Sketch Router™ feature provides interactive control of the auto-assisted routing process. It enables user control over trace location, routing styles, and a selection of via patterns. A fully integrated environment uses the same selection, planning, and placement functionality for 2D and 3D. It reduces ECAD/MCAD iterations with photorealistic visualization using 3D parametric models of components and enclosures.
