What Customers are Saying

"Cadence has built tools that are enabling us to develop better designs faster, while giving us a better understanding of expected performance. This advancement has saved us upwards of $4,000-$12,000 per new board design."


- David Edwards
  CEO at Abicom

"The latest release provides many productivity and ease of use enhancements. In-design inter-layer checks for flex and rigid-flex design is comprehensive and extensible, which can save us 20 to 25 percent time for rigid-flex designs."


Dave Elder

PCB Engineering Manager

Tait Communications

"The new inter-layer check capability provides comprehensive in-design, real-time checks, which will save us significant time currenlty spent doing manual checks after layout is completed on advanced flex and rigid-flex designs."
