DipTrace 3.0 Beta available now

Feb 17, 2016

Differential pairs | ODB++ | Gerber X2 | Custom Hotkeys | Updated component and 3D libraries

Since 2.9 Beta release we have significantly improved the overall performance of DipTrace. We added differential pair single-trace routing and editing modes that allow for easy handling of differential pairs on high-density circuit boards. Design Rule Check in 3.0 Beta verifies differential pairs for possible phase shift issues in real-time, based on the net class paramaters. DRC fully describes the nature of an error and provides certain rule details for changing routing constraints.

Phase Tune tool allows the user to fix phase shifts on differential pairs with semi-automatic meander placement tool. ODB++ and Gerber X2 manufacturing outputs improve the reliability of CAD-CAM data transfering, ensuring maximum understanding between you and a PCB house. Switching to DipTrace has never been easier with customizable shortcuts and vast importing capabilities.
