Pulsonix 8.0 is the latest edition and contains over 40 exciting new features and enhancements to our highly valued user base. Below is an overview of the major new features in this release. For more details, view the datasheet or read the Update Notes.
|Footprint Rules||Footprint Rules provide a mechanism for automatically selecting PCB footprints where the Part has multiple footprint alternatives based on defined rules. This may be desirable for a variety of reasons, for example, to provide support for different soldering techniques or technologies. The Footprint Rules allow you to define the footprint type and rotation of the footprint selected for use based on the soldering or manufacturing technology being used.|
|Via Stitching for Tracks and Copper Areas||Vias can be automatically added along, inside or outside of tracks and shapes.These can be used for shielding in RF or high speed designs for example. Via stitching into copper areas can also be achieved; Vias will be spaced, staggered or randomly added within a selected shape as an alternative to 'pouring' copper.This technique can be used for high-voltage applications.|
