AIFVU Revision History
The following notes describe changes, fixes and enhancements to AIFVU. Where version numbers are skipped it is normally due to the fact that the version never left the development area.
1.05 [04/18/2002]Structural Enhancements
No feature changes -- but the code has been "cleaned up" in preparation use as the chassis for AIFVU PRO. One result is that the program is much faster.
1.05 [04/18/2002]Bug Fix in Net Assignments
Fixed a bug which assigned incorrect nets to pins in some AIF files.Added net support for when BGA section used
Prior to this version, if the balls were generated using the [BGA] section their net property was not updated from the AIF file.Ratsnest Function
Added a rastnest display for pins that share common nets.Name Change
Changed application name from AIFVU to AIFVU LT. This is to distinguish the free version (AIFVU LT) from the planned licensed version (AIFVU) which will have additional functions.
1.04 [04/16/2002]Text Size
This version gives the user the ability to control the text size with individual settings for ball, finger and die pads.BGA Ball Support
This version supports the BGA section in the AIF file. If that section is present then AIFVU will autogenerate the ball placement per the definitions in the BGA section.
Here is a quick summary of the [BGA] Section:
[BGA] NAME=BGA name (ref designator) WIDTH=35000 package outline in same units as AIF file HEIGHT=35000 PITCH=1000 center-center spacing between ball pads CHAMFER=UR 1000 a chamfer on the outline. POPULATION= 34 34 number of balls along x and y DEPOPULATION= 24 24 remove this many balls in the interior REPOPULATION= 0 0 add back in this many balls (typically ground) BALL=CIRCLE 750 ball pad shape and size A1=UR location of A1 (looking from above the package)
previous versions would always print the entire extents of the data -- this version prints the extents as seen on the screen display allowing you to zoom in and print a small region.Zooming and Panning is Enhanced
Implemented drawing the AIF data to a memory-based enhanced metafile on opening the document. The Windows re-paint mechanism now draws this data, rather than re-eading the AIF database. This speeds up drawing and smooths panning/zooming.
1.02 [04/01/2002]Fixed Window Sizing Problem
Version 1.01 had a window size problem that forced it to run either fully maximized or minimized. This has been fixed.
1.01 [03/25/2002]Initial Release
This is the first release of AIFVU
