DipTrace 3.0: differential pairs, ODB++ and Gerber X2

By: Edward McDonald

New major version of DipTrace PCB Design software is now available
Novarm Limited announced the release of DipTrace 3.0, a long-awaited major DipTrace version featuring:
- Comprehensive support of differential pairs;
- ODB++ and Gerber X2 manufacturing outputs;
- Custom keyboard shortcuts;
- Significantly expanded component and 3D model libraries, and much more.

DipTrace 3.0 is a large step forward and important milestone for entire DipTrace community. Version 3.0 dramatically expands the designer's capabilities with comprehensive support of differential pairs, ensured by advanced double and single-track differential pair routing, editing, and managing tools. These allow the designer to handle high-density multi-layer circuit boards with lots of high-speed signals. DipTrace controls various aspects of differential pairs with custom phase and length tolerance settings verified by the DRC, including in real-time mode. Any possible phase shifts on the nets of the differential pair are easy to fix with phase tune meander-placement tool.

ODB++ and Gerber X2 manufacturing outputs improve the reliability of CAD-CAM data transferring and provide maximum understanding between you and a PCB house. DipTrace is one of the first electronic CAD programs to support the latest evolution of Gerber format, which is de facto standard in electronic industry.

Switching to DipTrace has never been easier with custom keyboard shortcuts and vast importing capabilities which allow the user to bring his designs, libraries, and even habits from most major ECAD tools into DipTrace.

Version 3.0 is a smart tool aimed at small and medium businesses, incorporating the series of advanced capabilities with a simple user-friendly interface. DipTrace 3.0 is the culmination of collaborative relationships with many PCB designers worldwide, in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

Novarm demonstrates commitment to serving professional electronic engineers, students, and hobbyists with necessary resources to make quality PCB Design with ease. DipTrace is bundled with four modules, Schematic, PCB Layout with high-speed shape-based autorouter and 3D module, Pattern Editor, and Component Editor.

DipTrace key features:
- Easy-to-learn user interface;
- Multi-sheet and multi-level hierarchy;
- Comfortable manual routing;
- Differential pairs;
- Multiple verifications with real-time DRC;
- Smart project structure;
- Wide Import/Export capabilities;
- Multiple manufacturing outputs;
- Real-time 3D preview with STEP export.
