||What is the difference between
BAE Professional and
BAE HighEnd version uses different
Layout Editor and
Autorouter kernels, both with a much higher performance. The
BAE HighEnd version also applies a sophisticated messaging system for advanced multitasking features such as cross-highlight between SCM and Layout (cross-probing) and features additional functions such as net attribute
, selective short-circuit display, advanced documentary layer selection methods, net type specific routing areas, etc.
BAE HighEnd is available on Windows and Linux/Unix platforms.
||What is the difference between a Demo and a user version?|
|The Demo software does not allow plotting or output via
User Language (plotting is simulated only;
User Language does not allow to open files for write access). The authorized version cannot read demo jobs, however Bartels System are able to convert such demo jobs.
||What is the IC Design package for?|
IC Design package supports standard cell and custom IC designs with Rip-Up placement and routing, GDS-II and CIF import/export capabilities, true on-line ERC and extensive rule driven DRC functions. This package is not necessary for vendor specific gate arrays and FPGA's. BAE
IC Design supports
User Language as well as features such as
and hierarchical part design. The
BAE IC Design system is optionally available for Windows and Linux/Unix platforms.
||Do I really have to read all the user manuals?|
|We strongly recommend this if you want to make efficient use of the
Bartels AutoEngineer (there is a reason why we have written the
||What programming language is used by Bartels System.|
|In general ANSI-C, with a few lines of 386 Assembler for the PC version low level device driver portions.
