Intercept Technology Inc., a leading provider of PCB, RF, Hybrid, and high-speed design software solutions in the EDA industry, is the recipient of the 2012 New Product Introduction (NPI) Award from Printed Circuit Design & Fab Magazine in the PCB Design Tools category.

Intercept’s Pantheon layout software underwent a complete user interface overhaul over the course of 2011-2012, introducing major new productivity and ease of use enhancements. These enhancements incorporate 15 years of leading edge development to produce an advanced PCB layout tool that easily increases productivity over its previous versions by 20 percent or more.

“The judges particularly emphasized ease of use this year," said Mike Buetow, Editor-in-Chief of PCD&F. “We heartily congratulate the winners for their efforts.”

Along with these newest innovations, Pantheon’s development as an advanced PCB, Hybrid, and RF layout application continues to provide equal or better functionality and performance for a fraction of the cost of the highest end EDA CAD tools.

 “Intercept provides the EDA industry with strong customer support, robust software applications, and perseverance in remaining at the leading edge of PCB, RF, and Hybrid design,” says Dale Hanzelka, Director of North American Sales. “In a tough economy, Intercept offers businesses a lower cost option that easily replaces its competition in functionality.”
Intercept’s PCB, RF, Hybrid and High-Speed design products are available for purchase with Pantheon, Intercept’s PCB/Hybrid/RF layout design application, and Mozaix, Intercept’s schematic design application. All Intercept products are available to customers on Linux and Windows platforms. For more information, visit Intercept’s web site at, contact Intercept by phone at 404.352.0111, or email
