AWR Corp., a leader in high-frequency EDA software, has been issued a US Patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “automatic creation of vias in electrical circuit design.” Issued on December 27, 2011, patent number 8,086,991 addresses a methodology of creating and detecting crossings of conductive traces on different layers of an integrated circuit or printed circuit board.

“By connecting traces on different layers using automatically created via structures so as not to short circuit other net traces, errors are eliminated and design cycles reduced when compared to a manual design scheme of inserting via connections,” said Joseph Pekarek, AWR founder and inventor.

The original patent application was filed on July 25, 2008, and the related feature has been available within AWR’s microwave & RF circuit design environments of Microwave Office™ and Analog Office® from that timeframe onward as part of the more commonly marketed iNets™ technology.
