Features of Proteus 8.14 New Release Version
Labcenter electronics has released the Proteus design suite 8.14 with added new features which include:
Test points: Set minimum requirements and clearances, then use live coverage monitor to achieve compliance.
If you purchased the license from Labcenter electronics, you will get
Dedicated support for testpoints throughout the software.
Moreover, you can do the following:
· Set minimum numbers on a net class basis.
· Define clearances, board sides and other rules.
· Use the live coverage monitor to work towards compliance of your testpoint strategy.
· Dedicated testpoint report and output plot.
· Either place and wire or designate existing pads/vias.
Diff Pair Configurator: There is now an added differential pair configurator dialogue on the schematic to simplify the setup and make it easy to specify pass through components on the diff pair signal lines.
Diff Pair Start point: Some extra work has been done on the routing algorithm for the automatic start of differential pair routing. This ensures that the uncoupled distance is minimised while also cornering in at 45 degrees, rather than at right angles.
Resin Filled Via Support (NCVF): There is now support for resin filled vias, typically used with via-in-pad. Simply drag a selection box around the area (e.g. BGA) and invoke the via filling command from the right click context menu. Filled vias are exported in a separate drill file and marked as IPC-4761 type VII (filled and capped) in the Gerber X2 output.
Manual Route Editing – Preserving 45 Corners: The manual route editing algorithms have been improved to better maintain 45 degree cornering during route editing operations. This is the first of several planned phases of route placement/editing development now underway.
Track Tapers / Teardrops: You can apply tapers to changes in track widths (E.g. from normal to neck style) to avoid sudden changes in track widths. It can be applied globally at the end of the design process and gated on the width of the track.
Align and Distribute Commands: The recently added align command has been complemented by a distribute command, making it easy to quickly arrange rows of placed passives.
New Manufacturing Rule: A new manufacturing rule (defaulted off) for minimum solder dam. Also called the minimum solder mask sliver or green oil bridge this lets you set a minimum feature width for the solder dam between pads.
Assembly Drawings Output: The assembly drawing output has been tweaked to include a BGA marker beside ball A1. A new property ASSEM_NO_MARK can be added to any component to suppress the pin 1 marker. This can be done en-masse with the Property Assignment tool or, more easily, with Design Explorer in search mode.
Proteus VSM for PIC18: A major upgrade to the PIC18 family with the following new variants added: PIC18F24Q10, PIC18F25Q10, PIC18F26Q10, PIC18F27Q10, PIC18F45Q10, PIC18F46Q10, PIC18F47Q10, PIC18F26K40, PIC18F45K40, PIC18F46K40, PIC18F24K40, PIC18F25K40, PIC18F27K40, and PIC18F47K40.
STM32 Arduino with Blue Pill: Support for the STM32F103C8T6 processor variant, used in the popular Blue Pill Arduino board. Support for the Blue Pill board is included with both the VSM for Arduino and Visual Designer for Arduino products.
For a full listing of features and fixes, you can log on to the official Proteus support forums and look under the ‘Updates and Fixes’ section.
Proteus 8.14 is available free of charge to all customers whose USC is valid as of 1st March 2022.
If you want to try out this latest version of the Proteus design suite, that is Proteus 8.14, you can download the free version below, else, read to the end and download older versions free with all libraries, including Arduino Libraries.
The free version of the Proteus 8.14 simulation software has the following features:
The free version of the Proteus 8.14 simulation software, which is the Proteus Professional demonstration, is intended for prospective customers who wish to evaluate the professional level products. It includes all features offered by the professional system including netlist based PCB design with auto-placement, auto-routing and graph based simulation.
Here is a list of what you can and cannot do with the demonstration version of the Proteus 8.14 latest version release.
· You have no limited time to use the software
· You can do an extensive set of sample designs included to help you evaluate all aspects of the software.
· You can write your own software to run on existing sample designs for evaluation purposes.
· You can only print Schematics and Layouts from the sample designs.
· You cannot save your work.
· You cannot simulate your own microcontroller designs.
What you can do with Proteus
Proteus PCB Software combines Schematic Capture and PCB Layout modules to provide an affordable, powerful and easy to use suite of tools for professional PCB design.
The Proteus schematic capture module lies at the heart of the system and combines a powerful design environment with full support for design re-use and assembly variants.
- Integrated web search with over 15 million library parts on demand.
- Manage multiple product variants from a single schematic.
- Fully configurable BOM module to customize BOM content and style.
Proteus printed circuit board layout is a professional choice featuring constraint driven design, powerful auto-router and dedicated support for high speed signals.
- Flexible design rule system including support for design rule rooms.
- Integrated shape based auto-router included as standard.
- Signal net tuning, differential pair routing mode and automatic skew correction.
If you are an electronic engineer, the Proteus design software is a recommended software you need for all your schematic capture, circuit design, virtual system modeling and PCB design. A lot can be done with Proteus 8.14 which I will be showing in the next post.
