The WestDev Ltd. development team is pleased to announce the availability of Pulsonix 10.5 build 7883. The Pulsonix 10.5 release includes new 3D viewing options for component and enclosure transparency, lighting, and clash markers, and component-to-component distance measurements.

[b[i]Version 10.5 Build 7883 : 17-December-2020[/i][/b]

Functional Changes

Edit Track
Using Restricted Movement, you could not set an angle and then snap to multiples of that angle. It always snapped to 45 steps relative to the angle. There is now a new option on context menu "Snap To Angle Step" to do this.
Spacing Rules
You can now link some spacing types together in the spacing grids, Pad & SMD Pad, Via & Micro-Via, Track & Copper. This feature is enabled in General Options. When enabled, on the spacings dialogs you will find three check boxes to link the relevant spacings. If you check a box, the linked spacing type will be removed from the grid and it will share the value of the type it is linked to. This gives you less values to provide in the spacing grids.

CAM/Description
Gerber – Outline of plane keep out was oversized too much.
Gerber – Gerber output files contained a small number of deprecated (out of date) constructs that did not
conform to the strict definition of the Gerber format.
Gerber – Had problem in a particular Description with a via not connecting to the power plane.
PDF Description – Some Page links were not working.
Drawing
Callouts – Callout closed arrows were no longer filled.
Drill Holes – Drill holes are not shown in a through hole annulus pad.
Export
DXF – Got different results depending whether exporting via DXF Export or as a CAM Description .
IPC-2581 – Package shapes were not correct, too many output as silkscreen shapes.
ODB++ – Wrong output using ‘Main Variant’. The unfitted component pads did not have a net.
STEP – Program aborted whilst attempting to generate a STEP file using a particular legacy 3D model.
STEP – Using STEP Preview on a particular design caused the program to abort.
ODB++ – Was missing a poured copper cutout when read into GC Preview Plus.
Framework
DRC Error Bar – Errors bar took too long to fill.
Find Bar – Find Line Style did not find a wire when editing a footprint.
Save As – Save As OrCAD EDIF did not cope with items in the component bin.
Hierarchy
Reload Block – Did not split a net that was local to the block.
Import
DXF – Importing a particular file had missing arcs.
Eagle – Wrong SMD Pad Shape was imported.
Easy-PC – When importing Schematic design, callouts became non-closed shapes or could not be moved as a complete callout.
Easy-PC – Did not read in the new Version 24 files.
Easy-PC – Did not handle version 24 files.
Easy-PC – Dimensions were not imported as Pulsonix dimensions, they were just shapes and text.
Easy-PC – No Variant information was transferred from Easy-PC to Pulsonix.
Easy-PC – Some problems were fixed. This included missing tracks, attribute positions not displayed, vias not marked as ‘not isolated’, wrong drill table and layer stack symbols and co-ordinate origin not set up.
Integra – Some components were missing.
Intelligent Gerber Import – The presence of G05 or G81 commands prevented the file from being recognised as a Drill file.
PADS – Failed to import PADS ascii 9.5 format schematic due to extra SIGPIN entries on a connector part.
PADS – Schematic import lost connections that had dangling ends..
Interaction
Add Bond Pad – In a PCB design with All Bond Pads selected and all interactively editable, there was no context menu command for Change Layer.
Add Component – Bond Pads on a Chip-On-Board Part were incorrectly coming in as unmovable.
Bus Routing – Option Define Bus Route Nets sometimes added more nets than originally defined.
Bus Routing – Defining more nets than are added to design caused the program to abort.
Move To Bin – Sometimes the program quit when moving components to the bin.
Edit Track – Pulsonix quit when trying to start a differential pair route on a particular pad.
Edit Track – Adding a track using Restricted Segment mode at a particular angle did not remember the angle after placing first track.
Edit Track – Using Restricted Movement, you could not set an angle and then snap to multiples of that angle.
It always snapped to 45 steps relative to the angle. There is now a new option on context menu "Snap To Angle Step" to do this.
Duplicate – When duplicating a part, if the Next Symbol command was used before placing it, the symbol disappeared and did not change.
Measure – Measuring the spacing between pads on solder or paste mask layers did not work.
Move – When moving a Chip-On-Board component, using option "Move Chip Body", you could not use change layer to put the component body into a cavity.
Move – Using Move To Bin on a star point dis not un-route it.
Move – Program aborted when entering the Insert Component dialog while moving an existing component.
Library Tools
Library Contents – Had incorrect pin mapping in LM393AD and LM393AN parts.
Save To Library – If multiple components in a design with the same part were selected, each footprint or
symbol after the first was placed in the doc symbol list instead.
Scripting
Run – Intermittent error message when running a script that flipped between PCB and Schematics.
Commands – Attribute usage for Part Attributes was wrong.
Technology
Layers – Could corrupt a design, or cause it to abort by unchecking the "Can Have Associated Layers" check box.
Spacings – You can now link some spacing types together in the spacing grids, Pad & SMD Pad, Via &
Micro-Via, Track & Copper. This feature is enabled in General Options. When enabled, in the spacings dialogs you will find three check boxes to link the relevant spacings. If you check a box, the linked spacing type will be removed from the grid.
Variants – Did not warn when deleting a variant about removing unfitted components.
Tools
Design Rule Check – Used wrong Match Pair spacing rule.
Design Rule Check – Spacings – Sometimes selected the wrong net class spacing rule when there were alternative matches for outer layers.
Pour Copper – Offset drill appeared on SMD pad after a library reload.
Pour Copper – Program quit when pouring all templates in a particular design.
Pour Copper – If you poured all templates and optimised all nets an unwanted connection appeared.
Replace Component – Database Update now has an option to update Selected Components (All Pages).
Synchronise Designs – Was not synchronising a net connected between star points.
Synchronise Designs – Synchronising a block to a PCB design with ‘Create PCB Group’ did not include test point documentation symbols in the group.
Vault
Vault – Had Vault Audit Trail timestamp graphical problem.

Pulsonixis a completely integrated Schematic and PCB tool suite designed to meet the changing needs of PCB design in the 21st century.

Pulsonix 10.5 presented over 30 added enhancements based on user requests from professional PCB designers. PCB design created strictly in a 2D environment makes it difficult to avoid physical spacing problems caused by part packages, board enclosures, or other non-electrical components. The Pulsonix 10.5 release includes new 3D viewing options for component and enclosure transparency, lighting, and clash markers, and component-to-component distance measurements.

Users can fix problems in the 3D environment by repositioning objects in single-axis movements, while also maintaining proper alignment with the board and other components. The 3D exploded view enables users to visually inspect the via structures and copper of internal layers of multi-layer PCBs. A 3D SpaceMouse allows users to rotate and zoom the view simultaneously with one hand, while the other uses the mouse to make component positional changes.

New for the 10.5 release is the ability to define constraint rules by area in the schematic around components and nets, and then propagate those rules to the PCB environment. Users can also gain improved control with the ability to turn on or off individual rules, seeing which rules are being violated in a single table view, spreadsheet style filtering of rules, and other convenience features. Improvements in the Pulsonix toolset include track impedance tooltips to see the impedance, capacitance, inductance, and propagation delay for any track on the PCB. Another example is the bus connection and multi-net routing capability in the schematic editor. There are also new dynamic copper pour improvements, thermal spoke additions, and tab routing options in Panel Editor, better layer stackup visualization, and more. The 10.5 release also adds options for importing Eagle designs and exporting OrCAD netlists.
