Altium Ltd, a developer of Windows-based electronics design software, announced that a new version of its P-CAD PCB design system for layout specialists has been released to beta testing.

According to a press statement, the new version - P-CAD 2004, significantly expands the capabilities of P-CAD with new PCB technologies and enhanced features, including a new schematic editor that supports multichannel and hierarchical design, a new topological autorouter, a new interactive routing engine, and improved management of design rules.

Nick Martin, CEO and founder of Altium, said, "P-CAD 2004 has been dramatically updated with the latest technologies and features to improve support for high-speed design, and to significantly improve P-CAD's routing and PCB layout capabilities."

The P-CAD 2004 also offers enhanced links to manufacturing with the introduction of new output servers, and the latest generation CAM software that features an expanded range of analysis and verification checks, and extensive import and export formats.

The new version will be released on the company's proprietary Design Explorer (DXP) technology integration platform, bringing all the capabilities of P-CAD together in a single, integrated design environment that supports document synchronization and project management features. A range of features throughout the capture, layout, signal integrity and routing stages of P-CAD has also been added to assist engineers and designers dealing with high-speed designs. These include improved support for differential pair routing, FPGA pin swapping, as well as enhanced and additional design rules.
