Pulsonix has announced version 12.0 of its PCB design software with speed improvements and additional features such as board folding and collision detection.

Board folding and collision detection allows designers to visualize boards in a stacked or folded configuration and to verify boards and components fit together in the intended space. Automated clash detection will flag space violations, and there is a capability that allows designers to ignore clashes that are intended for known connection points such as plugs and sockets.

Pulsonix 12.0 is faster due to the 64-bit implementation and additional multi-threading capabilities to speed up time-consuming functions. Users with large designs will see significant speed ups due to the increased 64-bit address space and multi-threading for library access, and 3D rendering is now multi-threaded meaning 3D viewing and output can be spread across multiple cores and completed in less than half the time.

Dark mode

Version 12.0 also includes a dark-mode user interface option, which can reduce eye-strain and power consumption.

Additional rules covered by design-rule checking include stub routing length, loop antenna, return path, SMD to corner, and SMD to plane rules. Additional enhancements to the editing of differential pair tracks further endorse the precision of Pulsonix.

“With almost 100 documentable additions and changes, Pulsonix Version 12.0 is a significant release with advanced technology and features that directly benefit our customers,” said Bob Williams, marketing director for Pulsonix.
