When developing circuits with high frequency bus systems like DDR4, it is very important to ensure the signal integrity by controlling the impedance of paired bus tracks.

PCB-Investigator offers a simple possibility to calculate the capacity between those bus tracks and your ground signal.

Ensure the functional safety of your PCB design by using PCB-Investigator's Capacity Calculator for your layout review!

When developing circuits with more than 30V, certain security parameters will need to be considered. For leakage current prevention the layout must meet minimum distance requirements as those defined in a series of standards such as DIN EN 60664 VDE 0110, IPC2 221A or UL60950-1. PCB-Investigator is able to offer an automated leakage current analysis to meet those requirements!

Change tracking is an important element in the development process between Layout Designer and Developer and would be unnecessarily time-consuming without professional help.

That's why we created the Database Compare Plug-in to filter changes made by the other party.
