Automatic Family Support is a way for your custom IP to define the IP'€™s life cycle and supported families, without having to explicitly specify each family or specific parts.
To enable this, in the Capability page, shown in the following figure, check the Automatic Family Support feature, and select between the following options:
- Level 1
- The IP life cycle is Pre-Production for all families.
- Level 2
- The IP life cycle is based on the part SPEED_LABEL property. If the SPEED_LABEL property is Production, then the supported life-cycle is Production. Otherwise, the supported life-cycle is Pre-Production.
- Level Beta
- The IP life cycle is Beta for all families.
- Level Discontinued
- The IP life cycle is Discontinued for all families.
Once you enable this feature, you can individually exclude the families using the right-click context menu, as shown below.
You can also edit the life-cycle using the Life Cycle drop-down menu, as shown in the following figure.
