Push and Shove Route Editing.

The 8.17 release is a significant point release introducing a new Push and Shove route editing mode. Building on the Push routing algorithms, users can now push tracks and vias out of the way during a route editing operation. This is fully design rule aware and works with both linear and curved cornering modes.

  • Push other tracks and vias out of the way during route editing.
  • Route Command Centre allows toggling of push editing mode on and off.
  • Visual DRC shows clearances of objects around the mouse.
  • Status bar upgrades for live display of route length and style.

Introducing Proteus VSM
for MicroPython

Proteus VSM now supports MicroPython programming with a set of supported target boards such as the Raspberry Pi Pico and the ESP32-S3-DEVKITC-1 board.

During simulation the processor on the schematic will execute the MicroPython program, interacting with any of the thousands of analog or digital electronic peripherals you connect to it and providing a full system level simulation of your design.

  • Full support for MicroPython programming.
  • System Level Design and Simulation of MicroPython projects.
  • Includes the Virtual Instruments Suite for measurement and analysis.
  • Single step debug your MicroPython firmware during simulation.
