I'm trying to explore PartQuest using PADS Layout. I followed some instructions like going to PartQuest website and edit my profile to select "PADS Netlist without Xdx Databook" as my current flow. Then, after installing PADS Integration utilility I was able to download a part (P1.0KBCTR-ND) and extracted .pqz file and placed it in my local folder.
Question is, how can I use or pull that particular part now that I'm ready to start my layout?
There were only two options I found. First, by clicking the icon Import PartQuest Part but obviously it shouldn't be as I was only directed to the website.
Second, I was trying to find the part by looking into my library list (partquest) but unfortunately, it wasn't there.
You're help will be very much appreciated.
Regards and Thanks,
