Version 2.22.0

Released on 22.03.2023

Feature Highlights

CELUS Supernova

CAD layer selection

In order to simplify the CAD layer stackup issue, we would like to introduce a  new 'layer Selection' feature  on project settings. This will allow the user to restrict the layers of the CUBO to 2, 4 or 6. The UI changes will include the Layer selection filed in project settings and notification to the user regarding change in the layer stackup.

Error Panel for CELUS Supernova

With this feature, the users are able to see and analyze the errors and warnings in order to be able improve and automate the content creation process against the design rule checks in place. The main idea is to have easy to spot errors and the messages should guide the user towards resolving these errors intuitively. 


BOM Modifications

This feature will allow the users to change the components with alternatives, directly on the BOM. Components can be selected based on the user preferences like preferred manufacturer, resulting in a BOM which is better curated to user needs.

Version 2.18.0

Released on 25.01.2023

Feature Highlights

  • Introduction of the CELUS Standard

The CELUS Standard is a new structure for electronic asset information.

The first version of the CELUS Standard standardizes the category structure, and asset unit specification. At present this is a backend change that makes it easier in the future to maintain library data, and to easily pull in data from different sources.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed issues with pads for Autodesk Eagle
  • Fixed issues with transformers in the case of pads and vias

Version 2.17.0

Released on 21.12.2022

Feature Highlights

Hierarchical BOM: Display hierarchical BOM information on BOM preview

BOM, or bill-of-materials, is a list of digital assets which contains the information about the type and quantity of all the components being used in a specific design.

With the release of this feature, we have embedded the configuration options in the BOM preview table. This feature will enable the users to have a desired view of the BOM and hide the unnecessary elements so that they are not distracted by the extra information.

Version 2.16.0

Released on 07.12.2022

Feature Highlights

Hierarchical BOM: Display hierarchical BOM information on BOM preview

BOM, or bill-of-materials, is a list of digital assets which contains the information about the type and quantity of all the components being used in a specific design.

With the release of this feature, we have implemented a tree structure functionality with the help of which we are able to display the hierarchical structure of Design blocks, CUBOs and components.

Hierarchical BOM: Display alternative information on the existing hierarchical BOM

This features allows the user to do a better selection of CUBOs without the need for trial and error, by displaying a main CUBO along with top three alternatives that are available within a single Design block. The user is able to change the selection of the main Subsystem or CUBO directly from the BOM preview.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed search on the Admin panel for resources
  • Fixed user creation validation

Version 2.15.0

Released on 23.11.2022

Feature Highlights

Hierarchical BOM: Visualization of current BOM on BOM Preview using Table capabilities

BOM, or bill of materials, is a list of digital assets which contains the information about the type and quantity of all the components being used in a specific design.

With the release of this feature, we have successfully changed our design system to improve the user experience on visualizing the BOM on CELUS Supernova. This enables us to unlock more powerful features and customization options in the near future. 

Hierarchical BOM: Sorting & filtering capabilities

Hierarchical BOM will show us the detailed tree view of components, CUBOs and design blocks, and how they are related to each other.

Since the number of components can increase to large quantities and it can be difficult for the user to search for components, the new sort and filter functionalities have been implemented to simplify the search for the desired component data.

  • Fixed issue with No unit display option in CELUS Supernova when No unit chosen
  • Fixed issue regarding CUBO slot alternatives in subsystem canvas
  • Fixed help button overlap for custom buttons
  • Fixed broken permission UI  




Version 2.14.0

Released on 26.10.2022

Feature Highlights

Validations on subsystem creation

Subsystems are complex digital assets that allow you to expand the reusability of your CUBOs through another layer of abstraction. It enables the mix-and-match of CUBOs to a much more granular level.

Creating great subsystems may be a bit more difficult if it is your first time doing that. For that reason, we added more validations directly in the canvas, so that anyone can quickly understand the important points and create high-quality subsystems.

Version 2.13.0

Released on 26.08.2022

Feature Highlights

Workspace filters on CELUS Orbit for data visualization

As a user with several Workspaces on your data portfolio, it is not always easy to identify to which Workspace a certain CUBO or Component belongs. With the Workspace filters, you can select only the relevant Workspaces for a certain search, and make sure you just find items within those Workspaces.


Support for design directives on Altium schematics

Design directives are a helpful feature from Altium Designer that allows engineers to preset some design constraints for design verification or to simplify the communication with other team members, for example PDB designers. Now, CELUS Orbit supports the import and export of schematics containing design directives without loss of design information.

Released on 20.07.2022

Feature Highlights

Workspace selection on CELUS Supernova projects

By selecting an appropriate Workspace list on your CELUS Supernova project, you can control exactly from which Workspaces you want the solutions from your project to be loaded from. This feature gives you fine-tune capabilities to consider only approved CUBOs or CUBOs from a certain group of manufacturers.Configuring the Workspace selection filter on CELUS Supernova Project settings

Version 2.11.0

Released on 06.07.2022

Feature Highlights

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.
