    Altium Designer 6.3:新功能介紹 (Whats New in Altium Designer 6.3) Part.3

    New - Altera ® Nios ® II Support

    If the Altera ® Nios ® is your embedded processor of choice,
    then you will be pleased to hear that Altium Designer 6.3
    brings full embedded tool chain support for the latest range of Nios II embedded processors.

    Working in Altium Designer's professional coding environment,
    your code is compiled by the TASKING Viper compiler,
    producing highly optimized application code that is substantially more compact
    than that produced by the GNU compiler.

    Debug your code running on the target Altera FPGA directly from within Altium Designer -
    on an Altium NanoBoard, a third-party FPGA development board, or directly on your product board.

    Figure 18. Full embedded toolchain support for the latest Altera Nios II processor.

    New - BT656 Video Capture Core

    The BT656 Video Capture core supports data streaming from high-speed video capture devices.
    It translates a standard 8-bit ITU-R BT.656 format video stream from a video decoder,
    such as the Texas Instruments TVP5150.

    The core performs structural translations and loads the video data, via DMA, into video memory.
    From there it can be further manipulated, or used directly by the Altium VGA display core.
    Figure 19. Perform high-speed video transformation with the new BT656 video capture core.


    New - I2S Audio Streaming Core

    I2S is a popular serial bus designed for digital audio.
    The new I2S core provides a convenient wishbone compliant interface for streaming data to
    or from a high-speed audio codec.
    The core performs the serial to parallel conversion required
    to directly interface high-speed serial audio to a microprocessor.

    Figure 20. Stream high-speed serial audio data into your FPGA design with the new I2S core.

    Improved - SDRAM Support

    Using SDRAM memory in Altium Designer 6.3 is now as easy as using SRAM or Block RAM memory.
    The memory controller core has been updated to allow support for SDRAM devices.
    This support is configurable to support the wide variety of these devices available.

    Improved - ProASIC3 ® Support

    Support for the Actel ® ProASIC3 ® range of devices has been enhanced.
    You can now use the Altium Designer TSK3000 32-bit RISC processor in your ProASIC3-based design.
    The ProASIC3's on-chip PLL is also supported.

    Figure 21. Use the TSK3000 RISC processor in your ProASIC-based FPGA design.

    New - Lattice XP ® Support

    Support for the Lattice ^^ XP ® range of devices has been added.
    You can now use the Altium Designer environment to work with these powerful and flexible Lattice devices.

    Figure 22. Altium Designer now supports the Lattice XP series of FPGAs.

    Improved - ARM ® -based Sharp BlueStreak ® Support

    Altium Designer's support for the Sharp BlueStreak ® processors has been extended to
    include all the available ARM ®-7 based Sharp devices. The supported devices include:

    • Sharp LH754xx series (ARM7TDMI)
    • Sharp LH795xx series (ARM720T)

    Improved - Embedded System Editing Performance


    Altium Designer has improved responsiveness when large embedded projects
    and project files are opened. Enhancements focus on the following areas:

    • Opening large source documents
    • Loading libraries
    • Switching documents
    • Projects that are linked to a VCS
    • Panel responsiveness.

    New - Logging in license server

    Altium Designer can be licensed as a standalone product, or to use a network license.
    Network licenses are managed by the Altium Designer License Server,
    which has been upgraded to support tracking license usage by user name, and machine name.

    Figure 26. Track network license usage with the new license logging feature.

    New - Device-Software-Framework (DSF)

    A new Device Software Framework (DFS) for embedded projects has been added in Altium Designer 6.3.
    The DSF has been designed to simplify embedded application development.
    The DSF delivers:

    • A Low Level Peripheral Interface (LLPI) layer,
      with tight integration between the FPGA peripherals and their driver code.
    • A Processor Abstraction Layer (PAL) greatly simplifies the portability
      of your embedded application across all target processors, both embedded and discrete 32-bit,
      supported by Altium Designer.
    • While the DSF 'abstracts away' most of the physical layer from the embedded application development process,
      you continue to have direct access to the processor's interrupt system.
      All of the sample embedded projects included with Altium Designer have been upgraded to
      use the new DSF as part of the Altium Designer 6.3 release.

      Figure 25.
      The DSF allows the embedded application to be portable between
      processors, instead of being tightly coupled to the hardware, as it is in the
      traditional approach.

    New - P-CAD Hotkey Support



    Appreciating that learning a new design environment is as much about retraining those fingers
    that press shortcuts faster than you can recall them,
    as it is about understanding the conceptual differences between design environments,
    Altium Designer 6.3 includes support for P-CAD shortcut keys.

    Both schematic editor and PCB editor, P-CAD shortcuts are supported -
    select the P-CAD Key Mappings from the View menu to enable them.

    New - Project packager

    An Altium Designer project can include many files, including source files, libraries,
    reports, documentation, data sheets, project PDFs, manufacturing files, and more.

    The new Wizard-based Project Packager greatly simplifies the task of managing this large fileset.
    Guided by you in the easy-to-use Wizard,
    the Project Packager gathers and packages the project into a portable ZIP file.
    The Project Packager supports:

    • Any situation where your project must be moved. For example,
      moving a project from one site to another, or backing up your project for secure storage.
    • Packaging a complete Altium Designer project tree - ideal for linked PCB
      + FPGA
      + embedded projects.
    • Packaging a complete Altium Designer workspace -
      ideal for designers that include all the board designs destined for a company product in a single workspace.
    • Managing how directory paths are handled during packaging.
    • Managing how files outside the project folder are handled during packaging.
    • Including/excluding generated files, such as reports, in the project package.
    • Including/excluding history files (files created by Altium Designer's built in file history/restore system).

      Figure 27. Use the Project Packager to pack the project or the workspace, ready to be moved.
