Universal Technology options

The Universal Technology editor contains various tabs. Each is explained below.


  • The options in this Technology editor are the default options that will be used to populate the same fields in Applications and Analysis Units. If you need to define specific options for a specific Application or Analysis Unit, then please use the Application editor (Analysis tab) or the Analysis Unit editor.
  • If you make a change to a specific option at Application or Analysis Unit level, and then subsequently change the same option via this editor, this setting will NOT be mirrored back to the Application or Analysis Unit - this is because specific settings at Application and Analysis Unit level have precedence if they have been changed from the default setting available in this editor.

These language packs can be:

  • predefined by CAST
  • created from scratch and added manually
