New Release of Easy-PC PCB Design Suite Includes Over 50 New Customer Requested Features and Is Part of a Summer Promotional Offer Ending September 30th

Upgrade from any version of Easy-PC to version 24 for only $117, with new purchases starting at $457.

Tewkesbury, UK (September 16, 2020) – Number One Systems™ (numberone.com), a technology-leading PCB design solution company, today announced the release of Easy-PC™ version 24, with over 50 new enhancements based on user requests from professional PCB designers. “We are a very customer centric company and welcome our customers’ input on how to help them achieve their design goals more quickly and efficiently,” said Fiona Colman, marketing manager at Number One Systems. “In addition to the many new product enhancements, we provide an online library resource of over 15 million parts to support our customers with their productivity.”

Easy-PC delivers performance in schematic capture and PCB layout normally associated with products at ten or even twenty times the price, and was designed to be simple to learn so that board designers can be productive within a short amount of time. Frequently, new customers report they are producing their first board within hours of installing the software. This latest version with over 50 new features and enhancements was developed in direct response to feedback from the many thousands of customers that use Easy-PC on a daily basis. Number One Systems is committed to ensure that their customers’ investment in the software design tools that they use are kept current and incorporate the latest changes in technology.

A few of the new enhancements found in version 24 of Easy-PC include:

Thermal Spoke values by Pad Style

 

  • One of the Manufacturability Enhancements that has been added to enhance copper pour areas and thermal spokes on pads enables the control of thermal spokes on individual pads or pad styles. This means pads on the same net can be allocated to different thermal spokes depending on their size.
  • Dockable Nets Bar showing details of the nets in a PCB design can dynamically display Net Name, Net Class, Total Track Length, Min/Max Length Values and Rules, Via Count and Test Land Count.
  • Intelligent Design Backups option has been enhanced to operate based on ‘Work Time’ rather than a hard, absolute time. This ensures that a meaningful amount of work is done between each backup regardless of how frequent the design is saved, meaning that saves can be done as often as desired without “filling up” the set of cyclic design backups with tiny incremental differences.
  • Number One Systems has partnered with Ucamco enabling them to embed the New Online Gerber Viewer into the Number One website so that designers can now drop Gerber files or zip files onto this interface for free viewing.

For the additional 45+ Easy-PC enhancements found in version 24, go to https://www.numberone.com/latest-version.  The summer Easy-PC upgrade offer ends September 30th—any upgrade for $117 and new purchases starting at $457.

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN

Sponsored by Synopsys

Autonomous vehicles, robotics, augmented and virtual reality all require simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to build a map of the surroundings. Combining SLAM with a neural network engine adds intelligence, allowing the system to identify objects and make decisions. In this demo, Synopsys ARC EV processor’s vision engine (VPU) accelerates KudanSLAM algorithms by up to 40% while running object detection on its CNN engine.

New package technology improves EMI and thermal performance with smaller solution size

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Power supply designers have a new tool in their effort to achieve balance between efficiency, size, and thermal performance with DC/DC power modules. The Enhanced HotRod™ QFN package technology from Texas Instruments enables engineers to address design challenges with an easy-to-use footprint that resembles a standard QFN. This new package type combines the advantages of flip-chip-on-lead with the improved thermal performance presented by a large thermal die attach pad (DAP).
