John - thanks for your question. I am going to move it to the product-specific PADS community where it will receive greater visibility by PADS users. This Members Resources area is for general Communities questions and suggestions.
The PADS Standard Plus Suite continues to include HyperLynx Analog. Last year we introduce PADS AMS Design Suite for the design engineer that needs not only analog/mixed signal simulation, but also schematic capture, component management, variant management, and the ability to define constraints. This is a very affordable addition license. At the same time however, we also introduced PADS AMS Cloud - a cloud based analog/mixed signal environment free to all PADS users! Check out more about both at https://www.pads.com/analog-mixed-signal/
That's great, I didn't know that a cloud was implemented.
I see that I would only get a one-year subscription... does this mean that I need to pay to use AMS after one year, even though I already purchased a PADs license? Is the support and updating behind HyperLynx Analog being discontinued?
