What's in Pulsonix 10.5
Constraint Area Definition in Schematic Editor
Add areas to your Schematic designs that behave as active regions used in the constraint manager to define rules without the need to assign rules to individual items. Rules allocation is much faster and far more flexible. Rules can be Net or Component based and subsequently passed through into the PCB design environment.
STEP 3D Preview
The 3D STEP Preview presents you with the ability to display an exploded view of your design so that internal layer structures can be inspected. Clash markers show the precise location of rules violations and the rule in error. A measure tool enables distances between objects in the 3D Preview to be viewed.
Component Place Rules in PCB
Component Placement rules can be defined using Areas or Attributes. With Areas defined in the Schematic design and Components then assigned to them, the place rules can be used. Defining collections of critical Components means localised areas in PCB are utilised by the Pulsonix placement tools and rules.
Multi Connect in Schematic Designs
Following multi-selection of pins within the Schematic design, connections can then be drawn as a set of ‘bused’ nets. Drawing nets as a collective save precious design time. These can be connected to another device and also to a bus item; weld markers indicate it can be connected for abolute connectivity integrity.
Drill Drawing Layers
Drill drawing layers are available in the PCB along with drill idents, symbols and the drill table. This adds further documentation detail to the design and complements the existing plotting mechanism for drill drawings. Coloured Drill Sizes can be used to define drill idents by colour for further clarity and identification.
