- Situs, the new topological autorouter, with complete support for all
electrical and routing design rules, BGA fanout support and cleaner routing.

- Enhanced circuit simulation, with import and export of waveform data,
enhanced plot graphics, overlaying of multiple waveforms and copy to
clipboard support.

- Integrated PCB signal integrity analysis, operating within the Design

We will also be previewing the new Design Explorer based CAMtastic!, with
auto-loading of all file types, enhanced DRC checking, and import and export
