OrbitIO System Planner is a multi-fabric interconnect planning and optimization solution. It provides a single-canvas environment where you can derive and evaluate connectivity between the dies and package in the context of the complete system. You can visualize and interact with multiple substrates simultaneously within the system, modify their connectivity and placement, and communicate to the adjacent fabrics to assess the impact.
In this blog, I will discuss three quick ways to start OrbitIO System Planner on Windows.
This is, of course, the basic way to start any installed application on your Windows machine. Choose OrbitIO 17.4 from Cadence IC Packaging 17.4- 2019 in the Windows Start menu.
OrbitIO System Planner starts with a blank drawing.
You can either create a new drawing or open an existing file. Choose File — Open and navigate to the drawing you wish to work on.
For easier access to your OrbitIO application, create a shortcut on your Windows desktop. Click to select the OrbitIO 17.4 icon from the Start menu and drag and drop on your desktop.
When the shortcut is on your desktop, double-click it to start the application. Like the previous method, the OrbitIO application starts with no drawings open. You can create a new design or choose File — Open to open any file.
Another convenient way to start OrbitIO is to associate the .oio file extension with the OrbitIO application in Windows Explorer. By doing so, you can open any .oio file in Windows Explorer just by double-clicking the file name.
Associating a file extension to an application is simple. If you have never tried it before no worries! Just follow the steps I suggest or watch the animation:
Now anytime you double-click a .oio file, the selected design opens automatically in OrbitIO.
I hope these quick introductions help you starting OrbitIO System Planner and with ease!
