The PCB editor can also generate a full suite of phototooling, bare-board fabrication, and test outputs, including Gerber 274x, NC drill, and bare-board test in a variety of formats.
A constraint management system displays physical and spacing rules. Each worksheet provides a spreadsheet interface that enables the user to define, manage, and validate the different rules in a hierarchical fashion. This powerful application allows designers to graphically create, edit, and review constraint sets as graphical topologies that act as electronic blueprints of an ideal implementation strategy. Once the constraints are present in the database, they are used to drive the placement and routing processes for constrained signals. The constraint management system is completely integrated with the PCB editor.
