Sharing an Advanced Link Analyzer Project

There are two ways to share an Advanced Link Analyzer project:

  • Project Archiver/Project Unarchiver method: Project Archiver and Project Unarchiver are GUI-based functions that collect and package channel model files, device model files (if applicable), and link settings in a single data file for sharing. See Archiving and Unarchiving Projects for details.
  • Manual method: Both .jne and .jneschm files are needed for other users to reload the link configuration in their Advanced Link Analyzer session. Make sure all other associated files, such as channel model files and device model files, are available or included so that simulations can run correctly.

Advanced Link Analyzer provides limited backward compatibility with link configuration files saved in previous versions.
