When looking at DC, AC, Thermal, and Mechanical requirements, keepout areas are important to the performance of a PCB design.

Keepout areas are areas of a PCB within which specified kinds of design objects are not allowed.

In eCADSTAR you can configure keepout areas efficiently and in detail, so you can make better use of your PCB design space with minimal fuss.
