Here are just some of the new capabilities available in the ADW16.3 Allegro Design Workbench (ADW) Library Revision Manager (LRM) and Component Browser (CB)

  • LRM:
    • Detects deleted parts and models
  • Component Browser:
    • Identifies parts removed
    • Identifies pre-released parts
    • Identifies parts with lifecycle  warnings
  • Design_reports
    • Pre-release models and parts
    • Deleted models and parts

Some features of fixing deleted parts / models:

  • Navigate to the impacted instances
    • Use the “Load Instances” and then “Highlight Instance” from LRM
  • For deleted parts
    • Use “modify” from Allegro Design Entry HDL (DEHDL) to select parts from same part name
    • Use design_reports for suggested replacements
  • For deleted models
    • Use “replace” from DEHDL to select new part
  • Re-run LRM / design reports to validate that the design is clean





Please share your experiences with the new ADW LRM features.
