Norbit, a Norwegian Original Design Manufacturer, has signed an agreement with Zuken to transition their total PCB layout and system level design environment to Zuken’s CR-5000 solution. Operating within a highly competitive and innovative market means that it is critical for Norbit to have design tools that allows them to implement the latest technology and continue to push the technological boundaries. In 2008 they had come to a critical point, where they were reaching a brick wall in their projects as a result of design tool limitations.
Norbit commenced the search for a design solution that would allow them to realize their innovation potential. Norbit has seen the benefits in using Linux both embedded in Norbit products as well as on their business servers. Based on this, Norbit wanted to make the transition of their PCB layout environment to Linux. This was another reason why they turned to CR-5000, as the Linux version of the solution has been widely adopted by some of the leading electronics companies, giving Norbit the confidence that this would deliver the cutting edge design capabilities at the same time as the security of an open-source operating system.

For a comprehensive solution, Norbit is now working with Zuken’s most advanced, modular design environment CR-5000. For the system level part of the design process they are using CR-5000 System Designer and for layout, CR-5000 Board Designer.
