Allegro PCB Design Solution Cadence ® Allegro ® PCB Designer is a scalable, proven PCB design environment that addresses technological and method- ological challenges while making the design cycles shorter and predictable. Available in base plus options configuration, the PCB design solution contains everything needed to create a PCB layout with a fully inte- grated design flow. The base— Allegro PCB Designer—includes a common, consistent constraint management solution, PCB Editor, an auto-interactive router, as well as interfaces for manufacturing and mechani- cal CAD. PCB Editor provides a complete placement and rout- ing environment—from basic floorplanning, placement, and routing to placement replication and advanced interconnect planning—for simple to complex PCB designs. Benefits • Offers a proven, scalable, cost-effective PCB editing and routing solution in on-demand base plus options configuration • Eliminates unnecessary iterations through constraint-driven PCB design flow • Supports a comprehensive rule set for physical, spacing, design for fabrication (DFF), design for assembly (DFA), and design for test (DFT), high-density interconnect (HDI), and electrical (high-speed) domains • Features a common, consistent constraint-management system for creation, management, and validation of constraints from front to back • Open environment for third-party application improves productivity while providing access to best-of- breed integrated point tools Systems companies are impacted by new devices and design methodologies offered by the semiconductor industry. New devices often bring more challenges, like increasing pin counts packaged in shrinking pin pitch ball grid arrays (BGAs). Additionally, new devices use evolving standards-based interfaces, such as DDR3, DDR4, PCI Express ® (PCIe ® ) Gen3, USB 3.0, and others, that may require learning new ways to implement them on the board. Coupled with these increasingly complex technologies is the desire by companies to differentiate their offerings and get them to market faster, cheaper, with more functionality and in reduced end product size. As a result, many companies now outsource to or partner with companies in low-cost geographies. To manage such increasing complexities, PCB designers need a solution that addresses their technological and methodological challenges.
