Types of managed blocks
Self-managed blocks: The basic flow for sharing design IP within a small design community. The self-managed flow supports basic data management and sharing without EDM tools integration.
Enterprise-managed blocks: The comprehensive flow for sharing design IP within an enterprise design community. The enterprise flow supports formal data management and sharing using the Xpedition®EDM tool suite to control and propagate reusable circuit blocks to production library caches.
Benefits of PCB design reuse
Supports concurrent development and accelerates design creation with a “building block” design process
Jumpstarts new designs through the reuse of existing IP
Eliminates repeated creation of the same circuitry
Provides improved quality and reliability of complex designs that use managed block circuitry
Facilitates the efficient exchange of blocks between schematic, layout, constraint management, variant, and ECAD Data Management (EDM) tools
