Best Practices: Working with Design Partitions

October 28, 2019 Cadence PCB Solutions

Design Partitioning is a design environment promoting concurrent PCB design. The
procedural steps and best practices for a successful implementation are discussed in detail.

The Allegro PCB Editor allows a team of PCB designers to work concurrently on the same
design database. As designs become more complex and schedules more aggressive, various
methods of facilitating the PCB design schedule are being practiced, most notably the use of
clipboards. Whereas the use of advanced auto-routing techniques can sometimes neutralize
the need for employing multiple team members, a team approach is often necessary but not
limited in the following functional areas of PCB layout:

  • Component Placement
  • Interactive Routing
  • DRC Cleanup
  • Testability
  • Silkscreen
