Cadence Design Systems
Software which is used by electrical engineers for designing of printed circuit board on a device, using various features is PCB design software. The main function of PCB software is to construct, inspect and test a designed circuit board before it can be printed physically on a polymer circuit board for use in the electronics sector. PCB design software is a kind of electronic design automation (EDA) tool. It is used to design layout of circuit. This software not only provides designing of the circuit but also validates the working of circuit.
The global PCB design software market has increased with healthy growth rates during the years 2010-2015 and projections are made that the market would rise in the next four years i.e. 2016 to 2020 tremendously. The global PCB design software market is supported by various growth drivers such as increasing use in semiconductor industry, ease in designing of circuit which saves cost and time, rising use in electronic automotive devices and technological advancements etc. Yet the market faces some challenges such as use of pirated software, lack of skilled personnel and easy availability of open source PCB design software which are hampering the growth of the market.
