What’s New in PADS VX.2.5: Constraint Template

By Shivani Joshi

Do you ever use the same constraint templates in multiple projects? Now, with PADS Professional VX.2.5, you can easily import and export constraints from one project to the next.

Constraint templates enable application of complex rules to multiple nets. They help ensure a smooth transfer of design intent from the simulation environment directly to layout. Recreating the same template again and again takes time and leaves room for error. This PADS Professional update allows users to easily import and export their constraint templates from one project to the next. Using a simple File > Export, users can save a constraint template as a .cts file and import the file in constraint manager for a new design.
