    AATK 880 Released

    kendall_hiles

      Read the included PowerPoint to find out the details on all the scripts included in the FlipChip toolkit.  You can download the release from here:

       

      https://sourceforge.net/projects/uwtoolbox/

       

       

      The versioning has been changed to a build number and most of the 880 updates have been to the FlipChip toolkit.  I have included an overview ppt for the FlipChip portion.    It was written for Windows but can work on Linux with user modifications.  Some scripts rely on Microsoft Excel and other use the Engines which require the Automation Pro license.  Basically what I am saying is the source files are included and if it doesn’t do what you want, you or your customer can edit it and make changes.

       

       

      To install it you have two options in the top level directory, read the READ_ME_FIRST.txt file and do it by hand or you can use the Install_AATK.bat and have it automatically set it up for you.  I just can’t guarantee the .bat file works on all machines.

          Be careful in the FLipChip menu regarding the Layout Driven Tab, Pathfinding Tab, the mizip button and the Sync button.  These are only inteded for Netlist Driven Designs and will not work with a DxDesigner schematic.

          The menu items shown are controlled by the FlipChipConfig.xml file in the FLipCHip directory but we have a bug with the header section.  The .xml is not controlling these at this time.

          This is a Dx friendly patch.  Unzip in the %AATK%/FlipChip directory replacing the files that are in there.  It turns off the scripts that are not compatible with a Dx Schematic.  I hope I got them all so do your testing on a non-mission critical design.
