What’s New in PADS Professional VX.2.6: Sketch Routing Improvements

By Shivani Joshi

Looking for a way to route high quality, rules-driven designs quickly? Why not use sketch routing in PADS Professional VX.2.6! Many improvements have been made to the integral sketch routing feature in the latest version of PADS Professional.

Users will now have more control over their routes when navigating in and around rules areas. In previous versions, sketch geometry was ignored when route sources were inside of a rule area and targets were outside. Now, routing will follow the designer’s sketch both inside and outside the rule areas.
