PADS Standard Plus is a suite of tools for PCB development, including schematic, analog design, signal and power integrity, thermal analysis, layout/routing, and manufacturing preparation. PADS Professional is scalable to fit your needs, both now and in the future with optional configurations and options for RF Design, Advanced 3D, Advanced Signal/Power Integrity, electrical DRC, and FPGA IO planning and synthesis. Advanced features available include Central Library, Constraint Management, PCB/MCAD Collaboration, Archive Management, and a Starter Library with over 10K IPC-compliant parts
Join EDA Direct to learn about the new features in PADS Standard Plus and how it can improve productivity for your complex design challenges from schematic design to manufacturing.
What you will learn:
How to use PADS central database to setup design rules and constraints with online DRC for class, net, group, pin pair, layer, conditional, and component rules.
How to setup high-speed rules for diff pairs, match lengths, max/min lengths for DDRx.
How SI analysis can be used to detect over/undershoot, ringing, crosstalk, and timing issues
How Thermal Analysis can help you identify any potential “hot spots” in the design using conduction, convection, and radiation cooling analysis.
How advanced layout and routing features such as real-time DRC, bi-directional cross-probing, split/mixed planes, and physical design reuse
How to easily understand the physical product being created and view the PCB from different perspectives.
How to visualize all board elements with photorealistic 3D displays
How to import Industry Standard STEP Models
