[PCB_FORUM] Re: New high-speed router

Hi Dave,

Cadence marketing has gotten into the "name of the week" club for some
of their products in the last few years, so I couldn't say for sure what
it will be called. But based on what I saw it's an evolution of the
existing Specctra product. 

Tried to look up the presentation online, but I don't think they have
posted it just yet. Probably not wanting to give the competition too
many early previews ;-)

Was nice to read the earlier post that they have it in beta now. 

Bob
