One of my customer claims that he is using Cadence IES version 18.09.011 with Vivado 2019.2. The version of IES that we officially support with Vivado 2019.2 is 15.20.073. Though the tool is forward compatible, I am not sure what are the versions of IES that are released after 15.20.073. Could you please give me a list of the versions of Cadence IES released after 15.20.073 and which is the latest version as of now ?
To be precise, Incisive ceased at 15.20, thereafter it was replaced by a product named Xcelium. The latest Xcelium version is 19.09, each major release comes out at 6 month intervals, so the next will be 20.03 in March.
Thanks for the quick response Stephen. I suspected that too. I think he is using Xcelium 18.09.011.
Yes, that's very likely. Note that Cadence only supports (provides bug fixes) for 12 months for each major release, after that customers arr required to upgrade to a newer release to get bug fixes. Hence 18.09 is no longer supported.
