PCIe Routing Guidelines
Even when following PCIe routing guidelines, auto-routers have a reputation for being difficult to set up, taking a long time to work, and providing less than desirable results. Are you tired of spending hours “cleaning up” routing that the auto-router created? Altium Designer 18 offers interactive ActiveRoute as the solution! ActiveRoute rapidly routes a large number of connections and complex topologies across multiple layers by defining guide paths and constraints so you can have manual-like user-guided routing automation results.
ActiveRoute is a constraint-driven interactive guidance router that allows design professionals to quickly route complex topologies across multiple layers by defining guide paths for the router to follow. It's rather useful for BGA escape routing supporting auto pin swapping, Meander Option, length and phase tuning with Guide Path Spacing which saves hours and produces manual like results from that of a veteran professional.
Other features of Altium Designer 18 include:
Support for cutting-edge rigid-flex board design
Powerful design reuse tools
Signal Integrity Analysis
Native 3D visualizations and clearance checking
Flexible release management tools
Altium Designer 18 enables designers to rapidly route a large number of connections in a fraction of the time it would take to do so manually while retaining the highest quality with interactive ActiveRoute. See for yourself and request your free trial today!
