Target 3001 Software

Circuit Simulation Lab / PCB Design Lab.  / PSPICE Lab / CAD Lab

TARGET 3001! is a CAD-/CAE-software for PCB design. The integration of theschematic-, simulation- and layout data into one user interface, and the integration of these data into one file is revolutionary to the work of the design engineer. The aim is a short time-to-market of your products abandoning internal conversion struggles. The TARGET 3001! Wiki gives information on TARGET 3001!. It assists you to get started immediately. It shows you how to deal with common tasks, gives you helpful information and points at new important features. TARGET 3001! itself consists ofschematic, mixed mode simulation, contour autorouter, autoplacer, PCB layout,3D view with a STEP export, basic EMC check and a frontpanel layout. It providesmanufacturing data for production processes of all industry standards.
