Component Life-cycle management

@Max: Good to learn that one integrated platform of tools will take care of the PCB design-to-manufacturing process flow. One question I had is would it also do the job of component lifecycle management? When ever a component is declared to be moved to EOL by its manufacturer, does Valor tool have a feature that would notify the engineering team about EOL status? Sometimes an NPI cycle of a complex board takes 12-16 months. By the time the design is completed and moved to manufacturing, it is found that there are some EOL notices for some components from the manufacturer (especially memory parts).

I think it does address this, but I will have to check back with the folks at Mentor -- and that will have to wait until after EE Live!

Thanks for the kind wishes -- it's 6:45am here -- I'm just about to head over to the conference center -- I'm speaking this morning at the FPGA boot camp. More later...
