Avishtech announced the availability of its breakthrough Gauss Stack Pro software. Gauss Stack Pro takes PCB manufacturability and reliability simulations further by accounting for the full board layout, thereby delivering a greater level of granularity and accuracy for PCB designs. This in turn optimizes and enhances the PCB prototyping effort and significantly enhances both near- and long-term product reliability.
Keshav Amla, Founder and CEO of Avishtech, noted, “When we first launched Gauss Stack, we delivered, in the truest sense, and for the first time ever, a virtual world that accurately mimics the real world as relates to the behavior of your PCBs. As we continued penetrating deeper in the market, many customers, as they adopted our offerings, mentioned wish list items for expanding our capabilities to solve hard problems related to both PCB layouts and stackups, in an integrated fashion. Layout software and all other modeling software don’t have these integrated capabilities, so our customers are really excited. Going from stackup to layout in the same environment to look at areas of concern from manufacturing, reliability, signal integrity, thermo-mechanical behavior standpoints at just the click of button is now possible with our latest innovations.”
With Gauss Stack Pro, product developers can input their layout files directly into the software which, in turn, will take the aforementioned characteristics into account to provide a more detailed, spatial simulation of factors such as glass stop, resin starvation, and filler damming that can become single-points-of-failure if not properly addressed. Developers can also simulate the impact of the imbalance of their layouts on board level warpage by taking the simulations beyond the aggregate-level simulations already available in Gauss Stack. In addition, stackups and layouts can be visualized and meshed.
Amla continued, “We’ve come a long way from the days of using rules-of-thumb or expensive and time-consuming build-and-respin approaches for creating PCBs. Our customers have already been able to deliver better, more reliable products to market faster at reduced costs with Gauss Stack. Now, with the paradigm we have created and are expanding upon with Gauss Stack Pro, Avishtech is increasingly eliminating significant pain points, making our customers’ lives easier, improving product reliability, and enabling the industry to usher in future technologies, today.”
