Cadhnaiocht Design - CAD Skills

By: Cadhnaiocht Design  05/12/2011

Cadhnaiocht Design provides designs in the following software:

Pads – PCAD – EasyPC

We are also conversant with the following software:

Mentor Boardstation, Cadence Allegro, Cadstar (DOS and Windows), Vutrax, Viewlogic, Cadnetix, and Scicards.

We would be happy to invest in any of the above packages in order to team with the right partner.

Our designers are conversant with:

Design technology: High power - high speed with controlled impedance and matched length constraints – analogue – digital - mixed signal – RF - safety critical / intrinsically safe – differential pairs – single layer – complex multilayer – high density – high layer count – EMC critical – design for manufacture, assembly and test – flexi / flexi-rigid – aluminium backed – single / double sided placement – split plane - microTCA and AdvancedTCA – CANbus – Profibus – mechanically constrained.

Markets: Networking and Telecommunications - Industrial Control and Automation - Test and Measurement - Medical - Aerospace and Defence - Automotive and Transport systems - Consumer Electronics - Fire detection & Security.

Packaging technology:  Fine pitch BGAs (0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.8mm) - Chip Scale Packaging - High pin count BGAs (1150+) – Micro BGA and PGA.

Manufacturing technology:  High Density Interconnect (HDI) / Sequential Buildup and microvias - exotic materials - via in pad - copper filled vias – blind and buried vias – lead free.

Board Types: PCI - backplanes – motherboards – load boards – evaluation boards – demo / test boards – controller cards.

Other products and services from Cadhnaiocht Design


Cadhnaiocht Design - Mechanical Drafting

With our expertise we can create: assembly drawings for all types of mechanical and electronic assemblies; heatsinks and metalwork; manufacturing pallets and panelisation drawings; technical and constraint drawings; front panel and PCB outline dimensional drawings.


Cadhnaiocht Design - Training

By providing your staff with PCB design training, they will then have a better understanding of the whole product design cycle and this will lead to better communication between the different design processes. As well as offering advice we can install the software, set up the component libraries and provide full training both in general PCB design and in the specific packages our clients purchase.


Cadhnaiocht Design - Schematic Capture

Often our clients deliver completed CAD generated schematics, but when required Cadhnaiocht Design can supply high quality schematic designs which will integrate seamlessly with the rest of your design files. Cadhnaiocht Design can take on the role of librarian and can tailor it to your requirement, either for total creation from the ground up or regular updating of your existing component library.


Cadhnaiocht Design - Reverse Engineering

There are various reasons to re-engineer a product - obsolescence, improvement in performance; but cost-reductions may be achieved by a simple review of the technology employed in the PCB design and the cost of re-design is often insignificant compared to the overall savings achieved. If so Cadhnaiocht Design can reverse engineer your printed circuit board, we are capable of reverse engineering a PCB from almost any source data.


Cadhnaiocht Design - PCB Design

Layouts require the PCB designer to take into consideration all aspects of the circuit, all aspects of the system design, all mechanical requirements, environmental and safety requirements for the completed design, bare board manufacturing requirements and assembly and test requirements.
