What do you like best?

I use this software for 2 years and I like the simulation tool for the cadence that support most of the simulation in software so we know what is wrong in the circuit. Also, we can do the PCB layout within the software. cadence have all tools as different extension and name so we can directly open these tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The schematic tool is good tho but for the footprint making and PCB layout, it's quite difficult for the beginner with this software. Very complex for a beginner even not understand using the video tutorials. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In the PCB layout market, the majority for software use is for Altium and Allegro so if you know that software it good for your carrier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doing simulation, PCB schematic design, PCB footprint generation, placement and PCB layout. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is very helpful for PCB design it allows user to create schematics of PCB and also used to find errors in board file as well as in schematic just by comparing existing schematic with user deigned schematic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Library symbol creation takes time. It takes 9-10 days to create symbol so it will interrupt your schematic creation also sometime software faces some slow server which takes lot of time to complete your work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is very good software for electrical PCB designs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very useful to create PCB design so that user can study PCB layout and aslo very useful to find out errors and unconnected nets in PCB. It also creates animated board file to study PCB board. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

User friendly than any other software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Component finding is somewhat difficult. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The speed of designing is fast than any other so must be recommended. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was replacing the components with alternate one. Routing is very easily done with the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

PCB Layout is a high-level engineering tool for board design featuring smart manual routing of high-speed and differential signals, shape-based autorouter, advanced verification, and wide import/export capabilities. Design requirements are defined by net classes, class-to-class rules, and detailed settings by object types for each class or layer. DipTrace features design process with real-time DRC, which reports errors on the fly before actually making them. The board can be previewed in 3D and exported for mechanical CAD modeling. Design Rule Check with in-depth detailing, Net Connectivity verification, and comparing to source schematic ensure maximum quality of the final product.
