Viewing the AutoTRAX Sample Projects

The video demonstrates some of the capabilities of AutoTRAX DEX, including schematic and PCB design together with 3D modeling, front panel design, artwork and diagrams.

LM3914 LED Display


This video show the design of a simple LED ladder display. It takes you through the process from schematic, custom part creation and PCB manual routing with AutoTRAX DEX.

Creating a simple amplifier using pre-designed circuits

This video show you how to partition a design into a amplifier sub-system and a separate power sub-system. The design uses predesigned circuits and show you how to drag and drop them  onto sheets to quickly create a sub-system. The sub-system are then connected together and finally the PCB is automatically created.

100 Watt Amplifier Design


This video gives you a quick view of the 100W amplifier sample that comes with AutoTRAX DEX. It shows the schematic, PCB and the PCB in 3D. You also get a glimpse of Active3D.
