High quality rendering
Draw beautiful circuits in publishing quality.
Rich component set
Use components from a rich built-in component library.
Use your own circuits as subcircuits in other circuits. Organize these subcircuits in libraries to use them in multiple projects.
Use the built-in symbol editor to draw custom symbols for your subcircuits.
IEC and ANSI gate symbols
Switch between IEC and ANSI symbol style.
Use the pre-defined DIL shape to wrap your custom circuit in a DIL shape, or use the 74xx library in the Antares assets project.
Dynamic and interactive custom symbols
Add subcircuit components like switches, LEDs or probes to your subcircuit’s custom symbol to let it display subcircuit state, and to let the user interact with internals of your subcircuit, e.g. by pressing switches on the symbol.
Individual symbol customization
Rotate or mirror a subcircuit’s symbol, and even edit it individually for optimal integration into its host circuit.
True bi-directional signal flow
Pins, wires and wire splitters in Antares can be truly bi-directional, allowing you to build bus-like circuits with ease.
Wire bundles and bus-style wires
Combine multiple 1-bit wires to multi-bit bundles and denote bus-like wires.
Automatic wire layout
Let Antares automatically re-layout your wires when you move components.
Open subcircuits in additional views.
Boolean Expressions and Circuit Synthesis
Define and edit truth tables, generate optimized boolean expressions (DNF), and let Antares generate a combinational circuit that realizes these expressions.
Use scripts to customize various parts of Antares’ functionality and the behaviour of your circuits. Scripts are written in a custom DSL (Domain Specific Language) that has been specially designed for dealing with digital circuits.
