hello si-list,

this is a re-transmission of my earlier question. I think I need to be more
specific. We know we can route under
any angle under our route editor, however, my question is with repsect to the
auto-router, not the manual router!
Or does this make no difference, that is, the capabilities of both the manual
and auto-router are identical.

A colleague remarks that Specctre should be Specctra.

****** first message next ***********

I have a question with respect to routing under 45 degrees angles (-45, 0, 45,
90). From the si-list I have noticed that
some designs use this technique. I am interested in designing 4 layers of
striplines in 45 degree routing.

Currently we use Zuken's route editor 5000. However, our auto-router version
only handles 0 and 90 degrees (Manhatten
routing). Currently we are also evaluating a Specctra route editor (Cadence).
It is too new to gauge is capabilities.

My questions:

-1- can Zuken's auto-router work under 45 degrees angles? Or more general,
under any angle(s) you choose?
-2- what are the capabilities of Specctra in this respect?
-3- does "any angle" routing exists for PCBs ( like wire wrap )??

Does anyone have any personal experience in these topics or is willing to
contribute some personal thoughts??
