DipTrace is an advanced PCB design software application that consists of 4 modules: PCB Layout with high-speed autorouter and 3D viewer/export, Schematic Capture, Component and Pattern Editors that allow you to design your own component libraries.
DipTrace is an advanced PCB design software application that consists of 4 modules: PCB Layout with shape-based autorouter, differential pairs and 3D PCB Preview/Export, Schematic Capture, Component and Pattern Editors that allow you to design your own component libraries. Besides being simple to learn, this software provides wide engineering capabilities with intuitive user interface. For instance, schematic can be converted to PCB with one mouse click. Advanced manual placement and auto-placement features allow to get acceptable placement in several minutes. The board designer can instantly renew PCB from an updated version of schematic and keep all previous work without changes. PCB and Schematic can be compared at any design stage to ensure they are identical. Hierarchical and multi-sheet schematics are supported. DipTrace has a powerful automatic router. It can route single- and multilayer circuit boards, and there is an option to autoroute a single layer board with jumper wires, if required. DipTrace allows to use popular external autorouters. Smart manual routing tools allow users to finalize design and get the results they want in a blink of an eye. Accurate shape-based copper pour system with different possible fill types, thermals and priority levels is available. Multiple verifications: Electrical Rule Check (ERC), Design Rule Check (DRC and Real-Time DRC) and Net Connectivity Check. These functions check connections in Schematic by different rules (pin type, short circuit, etc.), by clearance between layout objects, which ensures board accuracy and by connectivity of all nets not depending on how they are connected (with traces, thermals or copper shapes). DipTrace modules allow you to exchange schematics, layouts and libraries with other EDA and CAD packages. DipTrace Schematic Capture and PCB Layout also support popular netlist formats and Spice. Output formats are DXF, Gerber, Drill and G-code. Standard libraries include 130.000+ components.
