    Release AATK 993

    kendall_hiles

      I updated AATK to version 993.  You can download it from Source Forge

       

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

       

       

      It has some bug fixes and new functionality in the FlipChip toolkit.

       

       

      As a reminder AATK is not meant to run on all designs out of the box.  It has examples of how to add menus and forms to your flow.   Take what you want and put it in your own menus.  All the source code is included and you can modify it to your content.

          Kendall,

           

          I just tried to download the actual version, but my virus wall reports that there is a virus in the archive.

           

          Antivirus Programm: Sophos, Plc. - 3.40.1
          Pattern Version: 4.86G.4594335.1920165367 (2013/03/11 21:34:00)

          Virus: "Mal/Agent-GR"

          Can you please double check what is wrong?

           

          Regards

          Dirk

            I few releases back, I had an issue with one of the files I compiled becasue I had included too many libraries when I compiled it.  The AV programs thought I was using some tweaky code.  I re-compiled it correctly and have not had a problem since.  There are only a couple of user compiled programs in the lot.  No one else has emailed me about this release so I have no idea why your AV program is complaining.

             

            Email the download link to your AV program's tech team and have them tell you why this has a virus and what file in the archive is causing it and I will fix it.  If it is because the archive contains .vbs scripts your screwed becasue that is what the toolkit is!

             

            It passes Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, Norton, and Symantec that I know of.

                Just another question:

                Due to the problem above I downloaded version 4.3 of AATK, because I need the IPC-D-356 output.

                Unfortunately the script stops at the first through-hole component with an error message 

                 

                Error.png

                 

                Line number was 170 originally, I've inserted some debug messages.

                Having a look at the code, it seems that it can't work with through-hole components.

                You access a property pin.layer which isn't defined for through-hole padstacks according to the Expedition manual.

                 

                Does v. 993 contain an updated version of the script?

                  Hi Kendall:

                   

                  I have not tried this release, but Norton has flagged other versions as containing a virus.  When Norton does, I don't un-pack.

                   

                  Thanks

                    It has not been updated.  IPC-D-356 is a terrible format.  It has unit limitations, does not support round or oblong pads and in general is outdated.  I wrote it to fill a gap but in the end we went another direction.

                      Hi Kendall,

                       

                      Our web gateway is blocking the file, too.

                       

                      The transferred file contained a virus and was therefore blocked.

                        Antivirus programs are getting too picky.  I am pretty sure it is complaining about the ontop.exe program that keeps the .efm forms on top of Expedition so they don't pop behind every time you touch a trace.  I only included the libs that it required to manage the windows priority.
