PCB Design Software Upgrade

We have recently made a significant investment to upgrade our PCB Layout software (Mentor PADS) to the latest version. This introduces a whole range of new features including significantly enhancing 3D mechanical integration and allowing more complex rules to be defined for meeting electrical safety spacings. This should improve our efficiency in carrying out the challenging designs we have to do which regularly require complex mechanical interaction and also reduces risk as accurate 3D (step) files can be both imported and exported easily. At the same time we have taken the opportunity to improve our parts library to provide better uniformity across projects.
