I recently watched a Korean series and was attracted to the food that was featured throughout the series. I especially wanted to eat jjajangmyeon and decided to look for a recipe video online. The video I found was quite good, but sadly the instructions were in Korean, which I could not understand. I was still able to make the dish by guessing what was being done in the video. But I am sure the result would have been much better if the instructions were in my native language. Just like how I would have preferred the recipe in my native language, don’t you think it would be great if instructions for your IC design were available in your native language? This is exactly what you can do while adding notes to Virtuoso design intents!
When creating a design intent, you can now add notes in any language, using any alphabet available in the Unicode character set. Create the design intent as you would normally by selecting the objects you wish to add to the design intent and selecting Design Intent — Create Design Intent from the context menu.
You can add a note in any language, making communication between the schematic and layout designers much more fluent. Your note will be visible in the design intent info balloon and the Navigator assistant.
Design intent notes in the preferred language are also fully supported in reports.
In summary, this update should be immensely helpful to engineers wishing to share design intent notes in different languages. For more information, be sure to check out the related resources below.
