Pretty cool how it keeps differential pairs together right up to the end of the run.

Also the way in which it wraps/bends the ends of the differential pair tracks around the pads and vias to fine-tune the lengths and phases.

The EDA tools available to us these days (both front- and back-end) simply blow me away. When you think about the raw computation involved in dynamically moving tracks and vias around -- mind-boggling is all I can say.

When I started out in the early 1980s, you didn't even have the ability to *move* tracks -- you could  place vias and you could use the digitizer to add track segments -- but all you could do was *add* or *delete* things -- we dreamed of being aboe to *move* things LOL
