In a recent survey, we asked the following question: What feature would you like to see in your CAD tool? Here are a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.
- The ability to export a format, without errors, that everyone seems to like.
- A global route editor.
- Some specific features that are only used occasionally, like placement replication, should be available at an affordable cost with the standard license, rather than having to buy a full professional license.
- Much more flexible schematic symbol generation, specifically for the new MCUs, SoCs, and FPGAs, where one defines the actual pin usage in the software.
- More automaton for scripting the CAD output process.
