The Need for Speed: Strategies for Design Efficiency
Years of experience with one EDA tool obviously develops efficiency and makes you accustomed to the intricacies (good and bad) of your PCB design tool. However, with the development pace of today's technology, there comes a time when you need to consider a change to incorporate the latest methodologies. Reprinted with permission from The PCB Design Magazine, this article looks at productivity issues that impede the PCB design process.

Because photonic IC designers need full control of their design framework to ensure that the IC they fabricate exactly matches their design, and they need to conquer the challenges of photonic circuits, Luceda Photonics created the IPKISS.eda design framework. This framework is built on the Tanner L-Edit layout editor which seamlessly interfaces to the Tanner Calibre® One physical verification suite.
