Support links between Components and Virtual Components in CELUS Orbit
Virtual Components are generic instances that can be used by hardware engineers to create an electronics design without the need to look for a proper off-the-shelf components on the market.
Now, library or component engineers can link several real off-the-shelf components to Virtual Components, with a pre-defined preference order set by drag-and-drop, to enable a generic design to be transformed into a proper BOM for purchasing.
Even if the first option is not available on the market, procurement will know the second and further preferred options from engineers, and will be able to proceed with purchasing without the need for further alignment.

Design Considerations in CELUS Supernova
Design Considerations are a helpful resource that can be created in CELUS Orbit in form of questions that prevent engineers from forgetting important design aspects while setting technical attributes on a Design Block, depending on its category. Now, the assigned Design Considerations are displayed on the Design Canvas whenever the engineer selects the corresponding category, reducing the chances of something being skipped or forgotten.
Design Considerations for the Differential Amplifier category
- Softmodule Alternatives not generated for older CUBOs
- Layout files not being updated on certain situations on Board Shape canvas
- Description on link between virtual components and components is not matching
- Errors on Board Shape canvas without the generation of layout
- Optimal placement of CUBOs not working properly (soft modules)
