Creating and Using Complex Vias

Starting with Xpedition Layout VX.2.4, Complex Vias were introduced as a means to create user defined via patterns needed for layer transitions that require special handling, such as meeting heat dissipation, custom shielding or stringent EMI requirements. In this webinar, you will learn how to create a Complex Via; what the minimum requirements are and what other objects can be included in a Complex Via. We'll look at how Complex Vias are added to your design as well as how they can then be edited or reused in other designs.
