Five-Minute Tutorial: Where To Find More Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI) System Tutorials

Comments(0)Filed under: Digital Implementation, MMMC, tutorial, EDI 10.1, five minute tutorial, video, EDI 11, training, init_design, beginner

We've had some people joining the forum lately that are either brand-new to Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI) system, or are coming back to it after several years away. I thought it would be a good time to highlight some great tutorials for getting started with EDI.

If you're working with EDI 10, check out this solution page:

    Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI) System 10.1 Tutorial for Beginners

If you're working with EDI 11, check out this solution page:

    Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI) System 11 Tutorial for Beginners

A few points about the EDI 11 Tutorial:

  • This tutorial uses a generic PDK so it's not necessary to download a separate Artisan library. This generic library is packaged with the tutorial database.
  • This tutorial uses the new init_design flow with MMMC. (Starting with EDI 11, all designs must use the MMMC mechanism.) I see this being useful for EVERYONE, beginners and experts alike, since this is a major change from previous versions.
  • Have you found yourself wanting to file a Service Request, but you can't include a testcase because your design is proprietary? Use this generic tutorial database to try to reproduce the problem, and then you can submit it as a testcase for the Service Request.

The goal of these tutorials is to provide a small example of using the EDI System software. It is very basic by design, so it's highly recommended that users attend one of the several EDI System training classes provided by Cadence Educational Services. See the Support and Training page on cadence.com for more information.

Many thanks to our own Brian Wallace for putting these tutorials together and providing details for today's post!
