Once you are finished with your project, you can save the project files along with the latest OS files tuned specifically for your display in one production ready file. There are two production file types. The first is a .gem file, which is compressed and not easily parsable. A .gem file can be used if GEMstudio, GEMcompiler or GEMprogrammer will be used to program the .gem file into the Amulet module. The second is a .pdb file, which is not compressed and easily parsable. A .pdb file is useful if you are going to program the Amulet module via your processor. Please contact Amulet for more information on parsing .pdb files and programming the Amulet module via your processor.
Choose File > Save As Production File and a File Dialog box will appear. In the "Save as type:" pull down menu, you can select either .pdb (the default) or .gem. The choice you make in that pull down menu will determine which type of Production File will be saved.
You can open either a .gem or a .pdb file in GEMstudio by selecting File > Open Production File. Once the .gem or .pdb file has been loaded into GEMstudio, you can either Run the project in GEMplayer or you can Program the project into an Amulet module.
This feature enables the user to program a pre-compiled Amulet project file generated by GEMstudio through an external processor. Please see PDB format for more information on the file format and passThru programming for programming information.
