The Electra Auto-router

ELECTRA is a third party shape based PCB router that works well with DEX.

This video demonstrates how to use the Electra Auto-router

Auto-routing with AutoTRAX and ELECTRA

It is a new generation of Shape-Based Auto routing software for PC boards. ELECTRA uses a  multi-pass, cost-based conflict reduction algorithm to find a routing solution adapting to the natural flow of the nets. Adaptive routing algorithm is the only proven approach to reach a high completion rate.  ELECTRA gives immediate feedback on the routing progress and conflict reduction rate.

DEX, by default, does not come with an ELECTRA license. You will need to purchase a separate ELECTRA license. Find out more...

ELECTRA uses industry standard format by reading design file (DSN). Routing results are saved into standard route file format (RTE) or session file (SES).
