The recent 16.6 QISR-2 for Allegro Design Entry HDL has new capabilities for the Variant Editor.
Read on for more details…
Dynamic Viewing of Variants in the Schematic Editor
A new toolbar and menus have been added for viewing variants:
All available variants for a design are listed. It’s easy to switch between any of the variants as well as base views. Selecting a variant will lead to the annotation of variant-specific information on schematic sheets:
Custom Data Included
A complete hierarchical schematic now includes occurrence-specific data and cross-referencer data. The plotting / PDF publishing of any of the variants contains the complete data.
User-defined properties / custom text can be assigned to variant-specific data in the Variant Editor, and the placeholders on the schematics are updated with variant-specific data.
The attributes form displays the variant name in the source column for variant-specific properties:
Schematic Custom Annotations
- Option on DNI components
- Cross out
- DNI property
- All properties visibility
- Color customization
- Variant-specific component
- Variant-specific properties
- DNI component
- DNI cross
When you save a variant in the Variant Editor it generates files specific to each variant containing variant-specific information, and files are used for dynamic display of data in DEHDL schematics. Variant details can be defined at the time of creating a new variant or editing existing variant details:
– Variant name
– Variant property name-value to be annotated on schematics
– DNI property value
– Variant-specific custom text values
I look forward to your feedback!
