    Downloading PADS PE-L Suite

    dominicw

      Hello,

       

      After recently reformating my PC, I was unable to find the installation files to suit our PADS licence. We now have declined support and only need to software to open up old PCB files on an occassional basis. Where am I able to download the installation files? I have filed in a 'Patch Request Form', but I was only able to select PADS Logic / PADS Layout and not the entire Suite. Subsequently, I was unable to select a specific version number. Please help.

       

      Dominic.

          Hello,

           

          The 'Patch Request Form' is the correct procedure for requesting a software download when you are declined for support. PADS Layout/Logic/Router are all contained on the same download/media, so you could select 'PADS Layout' in the form. Based on your license (and the page/link below) you can run PADS 2003 through PADS 2007.4. I'm not sure what version you need for the older files, but hopefully that helps to provide you with the necessary information to fill out the form.

           

          Which PADS Flow release am I entitled to use?

           

          Cheers,

          Andrew
