DARWin introduces a translate manager, that supports around 60 different EDA formats. DARWin acts as an interface which convert projects from any EDA system to DARWin format and vice versa. Here Translator Import Manager reads any desired EDA format to be converted to DARWin format and Translator Export Manager writes the DARWin format to any desired EDA format.
Briefly, the main menu consists of:
File Opening and Saving of projects,create a new project, open an existing one, load and/or save projects.
Project Allows to view project properties, add circuits and setup the options for the project and allows to open a number of modules like Print Manager,Spice Netlist Import,Netlist/Wirelist Export Import,Import ODB++ JOB,Project Version Control.
System Contains the default option set,Aperture Table Editor,Default Via Padstack Editor,Default Design Rules,Subcircuit Adapter, Model Parameter Editor,List Generator,File viewer,Waveform Viewer,MM Simulation Model Generator,EDSpice Simulation Model Generator,VHDL Editor and allows to save and restore settings.
Library Enables the user to open Field Editor,EDSpice Symbol Editor and Aspacker.
In addition to these there are a number of options that enable the user to work with the various modules and editors of DARWin.
