COMPATABILITY CHECK CR8000 design gateway and design force

is there any COMPATABILITY CHECK CR8000 design gateway and design force?



  • Hello Nageswara,

    From your question, I am assuming that you want to know which versions of Design Force and Design Gateway are compatible to work together. There are a few ways to find this information. The primary location to look is in your Zuken ZGS account. This can be found in the Product tab>System Requirements>About Products Compatibility. Yo can then select your product and version to show a comparison to other products and versions. It will also indicate if there are any items that the users need to be aware of. See below for an example showing Design Force version 2019.

    Another area to find this information is with the release notes from the product which also can be found in your Zuken ZGS account as well. It is located in the Products tab, selecting the product needed, then by selecting the Product Release Document, Inside the document will also state compatible products to the specif product your are currently reviewing. See Design Force Zuken ZGS page location example below.

    Another location is actually in the product install tree, in the help directory. There is typically a PDF that has the naming convention of  "productname"_startguide.pdf. There is a section that contains information concerning compatibility to other products as well. See the Design Force example below (the file name is dforce_starguide.pdf).

    There are some additional locations to find compatibility information, but these are typically my top three places to go to. The first item noted above (using Zuken ZGS) will always provide the latest information concerning capability. 

    Best Regards,

  • Hi..
    Thanks for yours time to explain.
    Your assumption to my question is correct since my question is not clear.
    But....what I mean Compatibility is synchronization ( matching) of Circuit that drawn in Design Gateway and Board desig that designed in Design Force.
    After finishing my PCB design using DF, before generating Photo Data from DF, I want to ensure 100% that CIRCUIT entry in Design gateway and Corresponding PCB design in DF are 1:1.

    U can assume that Design gateway and DF are same version of 2018 release.

    My question it possible to generate something like a report that should ensure to us that circuit entry and board design are 1:1 ?.

    Hoping that now my question is clear.
