Development Model for ADE and ViVA
Virtuoso Analog Design Environment (ADE) and ViVA follow a development model that allows new content to be added in every third ISR. These content ISRs receive additional usability testing, product validation, and demonstrations and beta testing with customers. This development model gives R&D long enough development cycles to add meaningful content while ensuring that quality and stability of the main ISR stream is not compromised.
While this development model provides an excellent method to deploy new features and functionality in a frequent but controlled manner, it also presents challenges in making customers aware of the new capabilities. This blog post outlines some of the new features that first appeared in ISR 3, which was released in November (hence the "-ish" in the blog title). The next content release, ISR 6, will be available at the end of April so look for a fresh post with additional new items soon.
So let's get too it! What's New(-ish) in ADE XL in 616 ISR 3?
What new feature are you most excited to see? Are there other features that you would like to have to make your job easier? Do you have questions about ADE XL or other Virtuoso products? Leave a comment below and I will try to address them in future blog posts. Also watch this space for details about new features in ISR 6 when it is released at the end of the month.
