Hi Folks --
Just a (very quick) sneak peek at obstacle avoidance and walk around routing, coming in the new EAGLE version 8! To be sure, the ability to prevent shorts before they happen is critical to EAGLE users' productivity. This new routing engine, coming in EAGLE v8, follows the design rules and will walk around objects, making you both more productive and less prone to costly errors. What's more, it's fast! This clip isn't sped up. This isn't "follow me" 2.0. This is a completely new engine with some of the best underlying algorithms in the industry.
We would love to get feedback on what you need to be more productive in routing your PCBs. Your feedback will help us prioritize our development and ensure we release new features in the right sequence (where possible). To get the new router, subscribe today! For $100/year, you'll get EAGLE v8 Standard edition, 4-layer commercial license and ensure you get the new router when it's available.
