As you know, Cadence Online Support is your 24/7 site for getting help and resolving issues related to Cadence software. If you are signed up for e-mail notifications, you've noticed new solutions, application notes, videos and other content are added daily. In this blog I want to highlight a new content type called the Rapid Adoption Kit (RAK). This new content type is a packaging of related material to demonstrate how you can improve your productivity and maximize the benefits of your tools. Here is what I like about the RAKs:
For example, if you want to be an expert with the Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI) System then knowing DBTcl is essential. The "Database Access with DBTCL" RAK provides an overview presentation of the DBTcl commands and hands-on labs to advance your skills quickly.
Or perhaps you are an expert EDI System user but wanting to learn more about a new technology like Clock Concurrent Optimization (CCOpt). There's a RAK for that too!
