Rigid Flex Design

Rigid Flex circuit design requires a tightly integrated 2D pcb layout and 3D engine, allowing the designer to review bend areas and explore how the finished product fits together. Mentor’s Rigid Flex design options for both Pads Professional and Xpedition Enterprise provide unmatched capability with flexible board-specific stack-ups, 3D visualization and direct integration with the Hyperlynx signal and power integrity simulation tools

  • Board-specific stack-ups, as opposed the region/area stack-ups provides an easy to use and powerful way to define the rigid flex system.
  • Provides import and automatic creation of
    multiple complex board outlines from MCAD via DXF or IDX to save time and reduce errors
