In addition, CircuitCREATOR Pro also includes the RouteCREATOR software. This provides automatic routing of the finished printed circuit board without ever having to leave the main program.
RouteCREATOR provides a safe, fast, and effective alternative to manual trace routing. It only routes what it can, and never leaves tangled traces.
The RouteCREATOR directly reads the BoardCREATOR Pro file. It performs the auto-routing, and rewrites the file, but respects nets pre-routed by the user. It displays its progress directly on screen, and may be interrupted by the user, allowing the board to be edited and re-routed. User selectable routing parameters are supported, along with selectable routing strategies.
The software supports boards with different line widths, such as wide for power and ground, and narrow (normal) for signal or other nets. The routing schedule may be generated automatically or by hand (or combination), and may specify routing to a specific layer as required to route to edge connectors or surface mount devices. It uses a proprietary, artificial-intelligence based algorithm to perform net routing. Its routing rates are matched only by mainframe routers costing orders-of-magnitude more, and requiring specialized systems.
