DipTrace provides the following features:
Easy to learn user interface
To design a schematic, simply select and place
components onto your document and connect them together using the
wire and bus tools. Multisheet design is supported. Then select
the menu option 'Switch to Board' to convert the schematic to PCB.
Layout can be updated from Schematic in a few clicks at anytime.
When you create or edit design objects they are highlighted to
improve your work. Step-by-step tutorial available from web-site
guides you through the design process and allows to get started
Easy to use manual and powerful automatic
DipTrace PCB software includes an advanced
automatic router that is able to route single-layer and
multi-layer boards. It is available with a 'rip-up and retry'
algorithm. Autorouter achieves high completion rates by going back
and re-routing nets to make space for connections that could not
be routed on a previous pass. Intelligent manual routing tools
allow you to create and edit traces by 90, 45 degree or without
any limitations. Through, blind or buried vias can be used in
automatic and manual routing. Unlimited board size is supported.
Shape-based copper pour
Powerful copper pour system can help to reduce
your manufacturing costs by minimizing the amount of etching
solution required. To use it, all you have to do is insert a
copper area on your board in the PCB Layout program and any pad or
trace inside the selected area will be automatically surrounded
with a gap of the desired size. Using copper pour you can also
create planes and connect them to pads and vias (different thermal
types are supported).
Advanced Verification Features
Schematic and PCB design modules have number of
verification features that help control project accuracy on
different design stages: The ERC function shows possible errors in
Schematic pin connections using defined rules and allows you to
correct errors step-by-step. DRC function checks the clearance
between design objects, minimum size of traces, and drills. Errors
are displayed graphically and you can fix them step-by-step and
rerun the DRC in one click after any corrections. Net Connectivity
Check verifies if all nets of PCB are electrically connected. This
feature uses traces, copper pour filled area and shapes to control
connectivity, then reports broken and merged nets with area
details. Comparing to Schematic allows you to check if routed PCB
is identical with Schematic.
Package modules allow you to exchange
schematics, layouts and libraries with other EDA and CAD packages.
DipTrace Schematic Capture and PCB Layout also support Accel,
Allegro, Mentor, PADS, P-CAD, Protel and Tango netlist formats.
Manufacturing output formats
DipTrace provides support for a number of
different manufacturing output formats. Using this PCB software
you can produce N/C Drill files for numerically controlled (N.C.)
drilling machines and RS-274X Gerber files for sending to board
manufacturers. Vectorizing function allows to export true-type
fonts and raster images. Also DipTrace supports DXF output.
Producing PCBs using milling method
DipTrace allows you to export edge polylines to
DXF. The DXF files can be converted to G-code with Ace Converter
(it's free). Before edge exporting the DRC function of pcb layout
program checks the design and shows possible problems if exist.
Standard component libraries
DipTrace package includes component and pattern
libraries which contain 50.000+ components from different
Creation of your own libraries
Component and Pattern Editors allow to design
your own symbols and patterns. To create complete components
simply connect them together using Component Editor.
