What is Algorithm

An algorithm is a set of rules or instructions that are followed to solve a specific problem or perform a particular task. In the context of the PCB industry, algorithms play a crucial role in automating the routing process and optimizing the layout of electrical connections on a printed circuit board. For example, auto routing algorithms are specifically designed to determine the most efficient paths for routing electrical connections between components on a PCB. These algorithms take into account various design constraints, such as component placement, signal integrity requirements, and manufacturing rules, to generate reliable and optimized routing solutions.
