There are plenty of new enhancements to the Allegro Design Workbench (ADW) solution in the ADW16.3 release.I'll be covering several of these over the coming weeks, but today's focus is the ADW Library Flow improvements.
A new bulk part release capability is available:
The two release states in the Library Flow - Pre-release and ReleaseThe Pre-release state allows the model to be saved and distributed in the reference library without all of the valid checks that are run on a “Released” model. For example, a schematic model may not have a footprint model associated with it, so it is not released, but the schematic model may be required by a designer who needs access to that model in the Component Browser. The Pre-release state is displayed to the designer in the Browser. Before Packaging is completed, the designer would run a report to identify the pre-released models for updates.When a part model is marked as Pre-Released or Released, any model associated with that part that is checked in and verified will be released with the part. Do note that if an associated model cannot be verified, an attempt to release the part may fail, but using the Pre-Release state, it will be permitted.Any model that passes verification and is in a Pre-Released state may easily be moved to a Released state without invoking the check-out procedure. Simply view the details of the model in the DBEditor and select the release icon.Using the Pre-Release and Release steps in the library flow manager opens a GUI (see below) that lists all objects in the current working set that are pending release. This allows the librarian to select multiple models and release them all in the same step from within one location.
Here are some basic steps and screenshots you'll see in the ADW16.3 release:
There are several addtional enhancements in this ADW16.3 release for the Library Flow.
Moved Major / Minor selection to check-in
New Model UI, Basic and Advanced
The cell model relationship moves as an Informational Attribute and the library name and Tool name are saved as attributes. This provides cleaner and more intuitive UIs.
Of course, please share your experiences with ADW!
