In order to achieve our goal we use ECAD software from Cadence (OrCAD/Allegro) or Altium Designer, but other utility software is often necessary. Generating footprints we do with software correlating with the IPC standard. To verify/change the 3D models, a 3D CAD program can be relevant.
When calculating a microstrip, stripline or differential pairs (impedance calculation) software is a must, but advanced PCB structures call for close cooperation with the PCB manufacturer. Furthermore, there are rules for electrical conductor spacing (IPC2221) and requirements for crosstalk where software is a big help. Calculations of temperatures in heat sinks, vias, PCBs etc. also require software. To verify our documentation data we always use a third-party tool, to be sure that everything is correct.
We have the tools and the expertise to make sure everything is in its place.
