The free evaluation version of CADSTAR 12.1 with all the latest functionality, is now available to download from Zuken.com. When companies are making the decision about what software to use, a demo isn't enough. Designers want to get their hands dirty and see if the tools really live up to what the EDA companies are promising. The Express version of CADSTAR is a fully functional CADSTAR (limited to 300 pins and 50 components), allowing designers to see for themselves how easy it is to use and experience its powerful technology enabling capabilities.
"Like any business software, choosing the right design software is a big deal. There are so many options to choose from, coming from many different vendors--all trying to say the right thing to you at the right time. All you really want to do is try it out, grab the mouse and have a go--not watch others do it, as they navigate around the software to show you the best bits. That's why we have CADSTAR Express, so designers can make the right choice themselves," said Jeroen Leinders, CADSTAR Distribution Manager.
