Hello my fellow Digital Designers,
I'm sorry I haven't been around the blogs much lately. We've had a lot of exciting design work going on that has kept me pretty busy. I hope all of you are having a great 2015 so far. Just a heads up - all links below require a Cadence Online Support account.
Our Educational Services team has been busy putting together some short videos called Training Bytes. These are excerpts from full classes and could certainly fall under the Five-Minute Tutorial category. Today's topic covers how to insert power switch columns into a shut-off domain. More and more designs these days are taking advantage of multiple low-power techniques, and power shut-off is a popular one. EDI offers a lot of flexibility for different power switch methods - in fact, I think the command "addPowerSwitch" should win an award for having the most command options. Seriously, check it out in the EDI System Text Command Reference sometime!
What I like about this Training Bytes video is that it drills down to the basics, using the GUI, to get you going quickly with the most common settings. Starting from scratch with the text command is quite a daunting task, so I expect this video to come in handy for a lot of people. Enjoy the video below, and stay tuned to this blog for more Training Bytes videos in the future!
