  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: ADE XL Test Setup

    In my last post , I left you in suspense, with your mouse hovering over the words " Click to add test " in ADE XL. Clicking on this button will bring up the ADE XL Test Editor window (which should look suspiciously familiar) and a dialog asking you to point to the design you want to use. This...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: ADE XL

    I know, it's been a long time since my last post. You see, we've finally arrived at a topic near and dear to my heart -- ADE XL. The reason for my hesitation in approaching this topic is not that it's difficult, but rather that there's so much to talk about that it's hard to know...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: It's Video Time!

    Just a quick post to let you know that there have recently been a whole truckload of videos added to the Cadence Online Support Video Library. (Some shameless self-promotion here--I created many of them...). Simply go to http://support.cadence.com (registration required) and choose Resources->Video...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: Thumbnails

    Boy, you must think we're a few sandwiches short of a picnic over here at Cadence. A couple of months ago we came out with this great new Virtuoso software release (IC 6.1.4) . So, despite my best efforts to get you to use the recently-opened files list or to create bookmarks , the first thing you...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: Options? What Options?

    Recently, I got involved in helping out a customer who had become frustrated using the "stretch" command in the Virtuoso Schematic Editor. They were posing all kinds of detailed questions about the different options to the command. Options? The stretch command has options? You just grab the...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: ViVA (Part 4 of 4)

    Today, we're going to take on the somewhat daunting topic of the ViVA Calculator. But first, as usual, a digression. This time a trip down memory lane, or for most of you, more likely a history lesson... Back in the days just after man discovered fire, my teacher brought something to class that looked...

  • Things You Didn't Know About The Rhinovirus and ViVA (Part 3)

    Okay, so I really have no idea how to tie those 2 things together, but I ran across this little widget the other day and just had to share it (slide the slider until it's about 2/3 of the way across). I know we've all seen electron microscope images of those transistors we're fiddling with...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: ViVA (Part 2)

    This week's installment, boys and girls, is brought to you by the letters H, V, m & a and by the symbol %. Apologies to anyone out there who didn't grow up with Big Bird and Cookie Monster . (Is that even possible?) Remember those letters, we'll get back to them in a bit... First a couple...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: ViVA

    Sorry I've been missing from this space for so long. I've been busily working on a number of projects to try to help get the word out about all the features I have been (and will be) blogging about. I've also been becoming an expert on making video demos, some of which I'll try to feature...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: RTFM

    Wait, don't run away! In this case I really mean " Read The Fantastic Manual ". A recent comment by a reader prompted a spirited internal discussion here at Cadence regarding our Help system. I suddenly realized it had been ages since I even looked at it. Seriously, when was the last time...
