Take a look at Pantheon, winner of the 2012 NPI Award for the best new PCB design software.
Take your hybrid designs to the next level with Intercept's Pantheon, advanced PCB layout software with a specialized design flow for Hybrid and MCM designs. Integrated with its advanced PCB and RF design capabilities, Pantheon offers a rule based design environment that provides hybrid designers many options to not only automate their design processes, but also to benefit from the real-time checking that ensures an error-proof design.
Pantheon's hybrid-specific features include the ability to easily create dielectric layers, cavities, embedded components, embedded inductors, ink resistors, blind/buried pins and vias, scalable artwork, and parametric wirebond breakouts. Pantheon simplifies parametric ink resistor creation (rectangle, serpentine, top hat, and more) in an easy-to-use dialog, while also allowing multiple metals to be routed on a single layer and output separately. Since dielectrics are defined in the board's physical layers, each design is ensured to be error-free when using Pantheon's embedded Design for Manufacture (DFM) checking.
Pantheon is more than just a hybrid design application; it provides all of the basic to advanced capabilities needed for the completion of PCB, Hybrid and RF designs, including design rules management, artwork verification, 3D design viewing, embedded DFM checking, and much more. Since hybrid functionality is included within Pantheon, it retains full compatibility with Intercept's schematic capture application, Mozaix, allowing a seamless transition of a hybrid design between schematic and layout.
