CADSTAR: PCB Design Software

CADSTAR is Zuken’s powerful PCB design solution enabling an intuitive work flow, guiding designers easily through their design process. CADSTAR incorporates all the technologies necessary for a complete electronic development process in one environment.

From schematics creation, board and FPGA level system design, through to PCB layout and manufacturing output. CADSTAR also includes high- speed and signal integrity analysis and is complemented by extensive data management capabilities and a massive internet accessible library containing over 250,000 components.

The performance delivered for the price, with the scalable design environment, delivers total flexibility to engineers of small to mid-size EDA development teams.

Intuitive work flow

Throughout CADSTAR’s Schematic and PCB design editors, the menu items and options are all in the same location, providing an intuitive guide through the design process.

Fast design cycle

Zuken’s P.R.Editor XR HS (Place & Route High-Speed) is at the heart of CADSTAR. With a ‘right-first-time’ approach, this powerful placement and routing tool is optimized for speed and accuracy, tackling today’s dense PCB design challenges with creativity and intelligent automation.

CADSTAR’s fully integrated 3D environment dramatically reduces the design time by using the proven technology from the verification and timing analysis engines in Zuken’s high-end solutions.

Migration preserves legacy data

Migrating from PADS or other tools to CADSTAR is simple. Users can move all the data over to CADSTAR from previous designs, re-using symbols, footprints and other supporting design data and benefit from the ability to  re-work legacy designs.
