An Electronicstalk guide
Start with the news release EDA upgrades Tanner Tools Pro and Hiper Silicon from EDA Solutions, which we summarised at the time by saying "EDA Solutions has announced the availability of version 14.10 of Tanner EDA's Tanner Tools Pro and Hiper Silicon design software.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Autorouter shrinks die sizes from Synopsys: "Novel MinChip technology analyses physical design complexity and identifies the smallest routable size for semiconductor designs.".
In September 2006, we covered the news from Mentor Graphics UK - take a look at Router adds intelligence to automation which says: "Revolutionary routing technology combines the knowledge of an engineer, skill of a board designer and power of an autorouter.".
Take a look also at the news release from National Instruments, Electronics Workbench announces Multisim 9, as well as Professional PCB design suite comes up to date from Altium, and Substantial upgrade for PCB design from Altium.
