Okay, wait a minute here. Protel, PowerPCB, Cadence, Mentor, they are all
just tools. If you are designing a board outside the limits of any
"autorouter" then you need to use the "skill sets" that made you able to
design pcb's in the first place! I've used many different CAD packages and
NONE of them can route a layout as good as "I" can. I have always routed
fine pitch fan-outs by hand anyways, then let the router try, when it fails
or gets like 98% completion, I know that my job is to make it right! And I
like it! Any monkey can push a "route all" button!!!!

limited in the control a designer has, especially in fan outs on high pin
count high density designs (tracks per inch)."
