DipTrace 3.2 with the same net DRC

Oct 26, 2017

DRC same net clearance check | Improved object's highlighting and selection | New solder mask/paste options

DipTrace team announced the release of our new version – DipTrace 3.2.

Now you can automatically verify the clearances between various types of objects that belong to the same net. We also improved highlight and selection of overlaying objects in the PCB Layout, polished the length matching/meander placement tools and added some minor things to make DipTrace even more capable: always open/soldered option in the custom mask/paste settings for pads and vias, and Rotate/Flip groups in the Component and Pattern Editors.

Check out the full list of updates.
Download DipTrace 3.2. Update is free for all DipTrace 3.X customers.

High-speed signals and PCB stackup planning made easy with DipTrace 3.1

May 29, 2017

Length matching  |  Layer Stackup  |  Aligning objects  |  Import Altium ASCII  |  Import Eagle XML | New components and 3D models

 

We are happy to announce the results of our hard work – a new stable version of DipTrace which is a big step forward in high-speed net and differential pair routing.

 

The real-time length comparison table, length-matching rules for the DRC, and meander placement tool will help to make sure that all critical high-frequency signals or buses are properly functioning.

 

Layer Stackup table gives a comprehensive control over conductive and dielectric layers of the circuit board and ensures reliable communication between the PCB designer and CAM engineer.

 

We have also improved the Phase Tune tool and introduced the Align objects feature, permanent net highlight option and allowed for changing the measurement units with hotkeys anywhere in the software.

 

Our librarians have prepared 10,000+ new components and around 1,700 new 3D models.

 

Check out the "What's new" page for the list of updates.

DipTrace 3.1 Beta with Length Matching and Layer Stackup

Mar 13, 2017

Length matching  |  Layer Stackup  |  Align objects  |  Import Altium ASCII  |  Import Eagle XML  |  

New components and 3D models

DipTrace team invites you to download the latest BETA version of our popular PCB CAD program and test all the new features that we have developed for you.

The length matching tool allows the user to route and edit copper traces according to required length and tolerance values that are recalculated in real time.

Layer Stackup Manager gives comprehensive control over conductive and dielectric layers of the circuit board and automatically generates a table for CAM engineers.

We have added some long-requested features: align components, permanent net highlight option and allowed for changing the measurement units with hotkeys anywhere in the software.

Download the Beta version Freeware or Trial.

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.
