Proteus ease of use with powerful features to help you design, test and layout professional PCBs like never before. With nearly 800 microcontroller variants ready for simulation straight from the schematic, one of the most intuitive professional PCB layout packages on the market and a world class shape based autorouter included as standard, Proteus Design Suite 8 delivers the complete software package for today and tomorrow’s engineers.
Features of Proteus Professional
• Proteus PCB design seamlessly combines Schematic Capture and PCB layout to provide a powerful, integrated and easy to use suite of tools for professional PCB Design.
• Visual Designer for Arduino combines world class Proteus VSM simulation with a new flowchart engine to provide a truly integrated and intuitive development environment.
• The Proteus Design Suite is wholly unique in offering the ability to co-simulate both high and low-level micro-controller code in the context of a mixed-mode SPICE circuit simulation.
Developer: Labcenter Electronics Ltd
One of the main goals of the V8.7 release was to build on the high speed design support we first introduced at V8.6. The main addition is an extension of the length matchgroup functionality to allow a single section of track to belong/contribute to several matchgroups. This is necessary for fly-by topology routing such as is recommended for DDR3. We’ve also added browsing of length matchgroups via Connectivity Highlight mode and have improved the length match report to include more relevant information. Finally, we’ve allowed for the specification of internal lengths within a component body in ARES via a context menu command.
Another significant area for development was in automating the stitching of zones which can now be done directly from the zone context menu. You can also select to shield zones (picket fence) via a similar command and we’ve extended the functionality to routes so that you can better isolate high speed routes.
Library manager has been re-written and now includes both part previews and property information. You can also select two parts and launch a differencing tool that will highlight both the physical (e.g. footprint dimensions) and property (e.g. stockcode) differences between them.
The autoplacer has seen significant improvement in V8.7. First, we have made it dual-sided so that it can place on both component and solder side of the PCB. We’ve then introduced placement rooms which enables basic floorplanning of the PCB prior to placement.
Introducing IoT Builder
IoT Builder is a new product module, offering a complete workflow for the design, test and deployment of IoT connected appliances with the Arduino Yun hardware. It works with either the Proteus VSM for Arduino product or the Visual Designer for Arduino product to allow the development of remote user interfaces to Arduino products. This initial release of IoT Builder is ideally suited for use in education and hobby projects with additional features for commercial use planned in subsequent releases.
