Tech Tip on the Circuit Block Manager

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!
