Hello SV Team,
I have noticed a slight incompatibility with the intended import feature and the PADS lineup.
- Situation: As everyone is aware, PADS comes in four flavors - AMS, Standard, SP, and Pro. It seems that we can import SystemVision designs into any flavor, but VHDL simulation is only possible with the Pro and AMS tools. Standard and SP users can only use the SPICE simulator.
- Problem: I purchased PADS SP because AMS doesn't quite have all of the features that I need, and Pro was not within my budget. However, there is no upgrade path for Standard and SP users that want to add the VHDL simulator to HyperLynk Analog. The feedback from Oasis is that there are no upgrade paths for HyperLynx Analog and/or Eldo.
- Question: Would a SystemVision license add that capability to HyperLynx Analog, or would the simulator still be missing the VHDL functionality? How can PADS Standard and SP users make use of the SV import tool without the VHDL simulator?
All the Best,
