"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do... Explore. Dream. Discover."

- Mark Twain

Planned enhancements to AutoTRAX DEX

Before setting out on a new journey it's always a good idea to see where you've been.

Speed Increases

Following the X4++ speed increases at the end of 2019, it is planned to provide more performance improvements.

Utilize Mutli-Core CPUs with mutli-threading.

Improve internal algorithms using parallel programming.

Visio Style Diagrams

This will greatly help you create your design.

Standalone application.

Integration into schematic sheets.

Design Partioning

Ability to split up a design into multiple sheet. Select parts in a schematic and move to...

Sub-system with ports

Sub-system

Sibling sheet on same level

Child sheet

Part Creators

Similar to the current add/edit resistor dialog/command the following device types will be supported:

MELF resistors

Inductors

Transformers

Diodes

Transistors

Parametric Models

Parametric device models that automatically create footprints, 3D parts and the associated schematic symbols will be added for the following device types:

SIP resistors

Sockets

Transformers

Coil Inductors - Panasonic

Parts Library

Integrate local library with the Parts Catalog.

Simulation

This is a very significant part of AutoTRAX DEX-PCB.

Easier to use Parts

More powerful Probe (Simulation view)

More instruments

Device charactertization plots

The 3D viewer/modeler

More model creation techniques including surface of revolution, extrusions and machine tool operations like drills.

3D Import

STEP import.

Schematic Auto-router

This will greatly help you create your design.

Better rewiring when moving symbols.

Better rewiring when moving wires.

PCB Routing

Improved internal router. Shaped based at no additional cost.

Follow me routing with manual routing linked to the internal router; a bit like the schematic wire router.

Differential pairs routing.

PCB UI

Turn on/off individual unrouted nets using route panel.

PCB Vias

Via stack.

Gates and Pin Swap

Group pads into gates and swapable pads.

Reliability

Kill all those bugs and usability issues and make AutoTRAX DEX-PCB rock solid:

Improved Mantis Bug Tracking.

Feature Tracking.

Usability Tracking.

'It's a long road, but with all roads, there is an end.'
