Tech-Tip: CR-8000 Combo Command in CR-8000 Engineering Desktop
In CR-8000 Engineering Desktop, we have a function call “CR-8000 Combo Command”.
What is the “CR-8000 Combo Command”?
This command allows a user to create and put in multiple CR-8000 tool commands together, and continuously execute multiple processes.
We have a dialog to create the process how the user likes to run it.
In this example, I created a process to run DG DRC check, DG Netlist Output for NDF, and DG Netlist Output for RULF.
I like to run these processes over the DG design circuit. So In the Argument, you see in the pink color, I set “External Input” to On.
I save this setting in the “DG_test1_combo_command.cmb8” file.
Next, I create a batch file to run the CR-8000 Comb Command with setting file ”DG_test1_combo_command.cmb8”.
I save the batch file as “combcommandbatch.bat”.
In CR-8000 Engineering Desktop, [Option] > [Settings] > [Register commands] to register this batch file.
In CR-8000 Engineering Desktop, [Option] > [Settings] > [Customize menu] > [File Manager menu] > [Schematic Design Data (Design Gateway)], I register the command to assist menu.
Now in the CR-8000 Engineering Desktop, [Desktop] select DG circuit, assist menu you will see the “DG DRC & Netlist Output”.

Building a competitive product today is much more difficult than a few years ago. Existing PCB-centric design processes are limited to a single PCB and do not provide the necessary tools for today’s competitive product development environment. PCB-centric design processes are falling behind.
