Whether it's a USB 3.0 differential pair, x16 PCIe bus, or DDR3 interface, there are several design requirements that every board must meet to ensure correct functionality at full speed. Length-matching, trace spacing, and controlled impedances are just a few of the common elements that must be considered.

Differential Pairs and Rake Tool

Upverter makes it easy to route an entire bus quickly while maintaining the specified trace spacing. Whether it's a standard differential pair or large parallel bus, the rake tool helps you route all the traces in one go.

Length Matching

Many signal groups require length-matching to ensure near-identical propagation delays. With Upverter's Schematic Capture tool, simply select a group of nets, create a length-match group, and specify the tolerance. This constraint is automatically carried over and enforced in the layout. It's no longer necessary for the schematic designer to specify length-match groups in a separate document, minimizing errors and miscommunications with the layout engineer.
