Silicon Laboratories launched a web-based library of schematic symbols and printed-circuit board (PCB) footprints. The online symbol library features PCB footprints and schematic symbols that are available for download in a vendor neutral format. The library speeds the development of embedded system applications based on Silicon Labs’ embedded mixed-signal products.
SynaptiCAD’s Gates-on-the-Fly (GOF) Verilog netlist editor and incremental schematic viewer now features schematic back annotation and waveform viewer cross-probing. Using one of SynaptiCAD’s waveform viewers, designers can view waveforms from a simulation (e.g. a VCD file) or a logic analyzer and show specific logic states annotated on GOF schematic windows. The schematic and the waveform displays are linked so that engineers can quickly control the simulation time that is displayed from either the schematic or the waveform windows.
