Tech Tip on the Circuit Block Manager

Tech Tip on the Circuit Block Manager

Menu

Background

Modular circuit design allows engineers to create a set of electronics building blocks that can be reused and shared between products. The Circuit Block Manager facilitates reuse management and change control of a library of circuit blocks in a convenient and organized manner.

This brief video shows how simple it is to use a hierarchical schematic containing circuit blocks as the basis for a modular circuit block library within DS-CR.

My next blog post will show how to configure DS-CR with Circuit Block Manager – check back soon!

More information about modular circuit reuse can be found in these past Zuken Blog posts:

Ensuring Business Continuity and Reduce Supply Chain Risk–Managing BoMs with DS-CR and SiliconExpert

Zuken and SiliconExpert have partnered to deliver critical component information to engineers within the CR-8000 and DS-CR design and library data environments. The integration enables engineers to make better-informed component selection decisions while being able to review a wealth of part information, resulting in higher quality products and lower overall costs and reducing effort in part selection.
