Electronics designs have become extremely complex and intricate, creating a need for software tools that support automation, maintain accuracy, and meet short design cycles. Re-using previously designed circuitry has long been an option for meeting these needs, but has never been easy to implement. Software providers have made attempts at providing this capability, but their solutions haven’t always caught on. With new, more efficient options at hand, will customers see the value? Will they give it a try? This paper introduces a methodology that can handle today’s data-filled design content and still produce proper, reusable designs.
