Pulsonix is a globally well-known EDA (Electronic Design Automation) software suite for Windows platform, developed by WestDev from United Kingdom in 2001. It focuses on schematic capture and PCB design, is easy to use, and can help electronic engineers improve the electronic design process. In fact, it has become one of the highly integrated electronic circuit design programs that can best adapt to the changing needs in PCB design.

As is a professional and effortless PCB design and simulation software, Pulsonix has stable performance, strong compatibility (it’s compatible with the file formats of almost all popular circuit design software), and powerful PCB layout features. It is able to make you more productive, improves your electronic design process, provides your company with advanced yet affordable, PCB design capability. In addition, it offers three variants, all of which have the autorouter capability.

The schematic capture and PCB design tools provided by Pulsonix include: Schematic Capture, PCB Design, Interactive 3D, High-Speed Design, Advanced Technology, Advanced Autorouter, Spice Simulation, Pulsonix Vault, Component Search Engine, Database Connection, PLM Connection. Moreover, under a dual monitor setup, the schematic and layout design processes can each be assigned to a single screen, with changes synchronized as needed.
