Extensive design for manufacturability rules coexist with all other design rules in the constraints manager. In total, there are over 200 checks available. Adding a new rule is easy; just find the constraints set and create a new rule. Then choose where to apply the rule in your design from the design section.

Allegro - 3D Interactive
3D helps you visualize your end-product. By viewing your designs in interactive 3D, you can easily change the camera view to get a different perspective. And if your board has any flex regions, you ca
Allegro - Route Vision
Optimizing your design shouldn’t be a post-process. With Allegro, you can easily find and fix common route quality issues that manufacturing checks miss. Use 9 user configurable checks to: locate, ide
Allegro - Design Planning Auto Routing
With thousands of connections on your board, it’s crucial to organize and make your design intent known from the beginning. This way you can utilize your board space and layers efficiently. Proper des
Allegro - DFT DesignTrue DFM
Having your product fail in the field would be a nightmare. Which is why testing should always be a critical part of your manufacturing process. Whether you’re testing a bare board or a fully assemble
Allegro - Impedance Vision and Analysis
Properly managing impedance is a critical part of managing the signal integrity of your board. But DRC-based rule-driven checks don’t actually measure true impedance, they just help you manage generic
Allegro - IR Drop Vision and Analysis
Sacrificing copper from your power plane to make room for components is never ideal. But when space gets tight, adding traces or dropping in vias on the power plane may be your only hope. These undesi
Allegro - Place Vision
Good component placement is more than just finding a spot for everything. Through proper component placement, you can improve design performance, lower costs and shorten time to market.
Allegro - Return Path Vision
Managing your signal's return path is crucial to maintaining the signal integrity of your design. If you're not careful, a poorly managed return path will degrade the functionality of your circuit.
Allegro - Return Path Stitching Via
Managing your signal's return path is crucial to maintaining the signal integrity of your design. If you're not careful, you might cross a split plane or jump reference planes in your design without n
Allegro - Quickplace
The larger the design, the more time-consuming design transfer and parts placement can get. Allegro makes it easy to automate component placement so you’re not stuck placing components one at a time.
Allegro - Crosstalk Analysis
There's increasing demand for high speed signal design expertise, not just for signal integrity experts, but also for PCB designers. We simply don't have time to send designs to analysis and wait, and
Allegro - Place Replicate
You can create a reuse module from the completed circuitry and save it to your library for future use. Once saved in your library, you can apply the module to the rest of the power supplies in your de
Allegro - Backdrill
Back drilling in Allegro is footprint aware, so if you change the parameters of a padstack, you can adjust the keepouts too. You don't need to manually update each one either. Changing the padstack li
Allegro - Command Window
The command window is a powerful way to input commands, too. Just type the command you want and press enter. As you type, predictive commands are displayed and autocompleted, making the command window
Allegro - Design Workflow
As your designs get more complex or as you work in specialized teams, you can create custom workflows for specific tasks or roles; like library creation or quality control checks. You can also custo
Allegro - Find by Query
Building your query is easy. Rather than typing your query or memorizing functions, you can browse through all available object types and drag and drop. Just specify the operator values and instantly
Allegro - Return Path DRC
Allegro analyzes your design to provide real-time insights and feedback to help you find and avoid potential return path issues. As you work, traces are color coded so you can quickly identify potent
