"We are impressed with the productivity gains our designers achieve with CircuitSpace," stated Mr. Bassam Abdel-Dayem, PCB Technical Leader at Cisco Systems, Inc. "Being able to preserve the hierarchy within layout and component placement has a direct impact on time-to-market for new products, which directly correlates to profitability," continued Mr. Abdel-Dayem.
"Since the initial release of CircuitSpace, we have worked closely with our key customers in developing the next generation intelligent EDA solutions for PCB design," stated Mr. Edward Pupa, DesignAdvance CEO. "Bringing the hierarchical methodology to the physical layout level is a testimony to our ongoing commitment to the PCB designer," continued Mr. Pupa.
