Vutrax Module Descriptions

  • Draft and Plot:
    Library generation, Schematics, General drawing and Technical drawing facilities. Plot outputs to Dot Matrix, Pen, Postscript, Laser and Windows GDI printer/plotters.
  • PCB Utilities:
    Track creation, editing and mitring. Vias automatically inserted including 'blind and buried' vias. 999 user definable pad codes.
  • Schematic Capture & Annotate:
    Schematic hierarchy and design partitioning. Automatic allocation of gates, integrity between the Schematic and Rats Nest. Annotates Schematic with component references and pin numbers.
  • Automatic Placement:
    Places components within a board profile. Automatic grid adjustment, device coupling, component swopping and signal optimisation.
  • Automatic Routing:
    Orthogonal multipass autorouter. Via minimisation, 45 degree corner cutting and track necking.
  • Rip-up & Retry Autorouting:
    Gridless Multi-layer on-screen autorouter. Multiple clearance routing, automatic 45 degree corners, copper sharing including 'T' junctions, multiple via types for blind and buried vias.
  • Groundplane Generation:
    On-line copper pouring in DRAFT. Partial or complete screens of copper around pre-routed areas of the PCB to a defined signal.
  • Powerplane Generation:
    Automatic generation of internal or external power/ground planes supplying both Isolating Disk or Ring and Thermal Break Ties.
  • Design Rule Checking:
    On-line checking in DRAFT. Off-line multiple clearance checking for connectivity, short circuits, physical clearances and undersized tracks and pads between signals or different classed signals.
  • EMC Analysis:
    Measurements and rules to access areas of the design that may be a source of EM emissions and susceptibility.
  • Forward Modification:
    Modifications to a schematic, are reflected on the PCB.
  • Back Modification:
    Changes made on a PCB are reflected back onto the Schematic.
  • Silkscreen Renumber:
    Renumbers a schematic(s) or PCB in a logical sequence. Silk Replace facility for adding resistive inks to Hybrid designs.
  • Gluespot, Pick & Place, ATE:
    Generates data for NC machines to place Gluespots for securing SMD devices. Testpoint analyses defined components or pads for ATE co-ordinate data.
  • Statistics and Mass Edit:
    Detailed analysis of the PCB - number of holes pad analysis, board size, number of components etc. Mass Edit enables complex changes to artwork layers, track widths, pad sizes and text widths.
  • 3D Visualisation:
    Component Height definitions produce 3D forms of Isometric and/or 3rd Angle projection detailing packaging height violations.
  • Photoplot, CNC, Milling & Routing:
    Post-processing of both Gerber and Emma photo-plotting formats, Excellon CNC drilling output in ASCII & EIA forms and Excellon MILLING/ROUTING output.
  • Photoplot Decode:
    Gerber and Emma photo-plotting files decoded into Vutrax format for manipulation.
  • DXF Interface:
    Bi-directional graphics/data transfer facility to/from 2D/3D mechanical systems.
  • OrCAD Interface:
    Converter allowing Vutrax to accept OrCAD schematic data in '.PIN' format.
  • PSpice Interface:
    Interface to PSpice circuit simulator for Schematic analysis.

Production/Shop Floor Viewers

  • Production/Shop Floor viewers are intended for display and printing of graphics files (Artworks and Schematics) where the drawing require protection against change.

Interfaces

  • IDF Interface:
    IDF format interfaces to 3D Modelling software packages such as Solidworks and Pro-Engineer.
  • Bitmap Converter:
    Converts a monochrome bitmap to Vutrax Vector format. Suitable for company logos, line drawings and signatures. A free issue based a GNU license converter, and usable with all configurations.
  • Supplementary Libraries:
    A number of library sets that complement the standard set. Free issue usable with all configurations.
  • Electra/Specctra Interface:
    Interfaces to the Konekt 'Electra' advanced autorouter.
    Also supports the Cadence Electronic Design Specctra Autorouter versions 8 to 10.

Electra Autorouter

  • ELECTRA is a new generation of Shape-Based Autorouting software for PC boards. By contrast with traditional gridded maze autorouters, a shape-based approach allows for more efficient use of routing area and is more suited to handle complex design rules requirements of high density SMD or through holes boards. ELECTRA uses a multi-pass cost-based conflict reduction algorithm to find a routing solution adapting to the natural flow of the nets. Its adaptive routing algorithm is the only proven approach to reach high completion rate. ELECTRA provides immediate feedback on the routing progress and conflict reduction rate.
    Pricing includes the Electra/Specctra Interface module.
