Description of DipTrace program from developer(s):
DipTrace is an advanced PCB design software application that consists of 4 modules: PCB Layout with shape-based autorouter, high-speed/differential signal routing tools, and 3D PCB Preview/Export, Schematic Capture, and Component/Pattern Editors that allow you to design custom component/footprint libraries. Besides being very simple to learn, this software provides wide engineering capabilities with intuitive user interface. Schematic capture works with hierarchical and multi-sheet schematics. Instant converting to PCB, renewing a circuit board from schematic, and comparing them keeps an entire PCB project in sync on all design stages. DipTrace provides manual and automatic placement tools and is capable of routing single- and multilayer circuit boards (including PCBs with jumper wires) with a full control over the layer stackup. The software also supports external autorouters. Smart manual routing tools allow the users to finalize complex high-density designs with differential pairs and high-speed data buses and get a working prototype on time. An accurate shape-based copper pour system with different possible fill types, thermals, and priority levels is available. Electrical Rule Check (ERC), Design Rule Check (DRC and Real-Time DRC), and Net Connectivity Check ensure the error-free working environment. ERC checks connections in the schematic by pin type, short circuit, etc. DRC verifies sizes and clearances between the objects on the circuit board, differential pair phase tolerances, and length-matching rules according to custom constraints. Net Connectivity checks if all nets are properly connected. DipTrace is highly flexible and allows for exchanging schematics, layouts, and libraries with other EDA and CAD packages. DipTrace Schematic Capture and PCB Layout also support popular netlist formats and SPICE. Output formats: DXF, Gerber, ODB++, Gerber X2, IPC-D-356A, N/C Drill, and G-code. Standard libraries include 140.000+ components and 7,500 3D models.
