In a recent post (also on Cadence.com), I made note of Japan Aviation Electronics (JAE) announcement and release of their connectors encrypted by/with and for Cadence's electromagnetic analysis solution, namely Clarity 3D Solver.
First up, Clarity supports encryption! As such, this functionality allows customers, partners and vendors to supply 3D component models, such as connectors, to protect their IP while at the same time enabling a design ecosystem. In other words, these encrypted components can now be incorporated into an electronic system design and simulated without revealing the physical IP of the 3D component itself. Learn more about encryption within the Clarity 3D Solver..
Secondly, JAE is the first vendor to take full advantage of this functionality and used CadenceLIVE Japan to publicly announced their encrypted connector models and availability. If you'd like to learn more about this presentation, it was given by Hiroaki Ikeda, the Connector Product Planning Dev. of JAE, and can be found here: Providing Connector Models for the Electromagnetic Field Simulator Clarity.
Scroll to the last page of this presentation and you can then scan the QR code to go directly to the appropriate site page from which you can download the JAE Clarity encrypted connectors.
Stay tuned for more vendors announcing their Clarity-encrypted IP models and libraries. Or if you'd like to talk to us about joining this Clarity-encrypted IP ecosystem, reach out to your local account executive.
