Johnson, I believe that allegro can load foriegn netlists. It has been quite awhile since I have done this and I currently do not have allegro in front of me. You might want to research the process of what types of other netlists allegro can pull in, then see if altium has same format. Or, you could: 1. package design (...)
i m using altium . so from altium i hav expoted Orcad/PCB2 netlist from schematic. i changed the netlist as per allegro package. but couldnt load the netlist. what should i do?
Hi, I'm trying to translate my altium design to Cadence. The schematics translation worked fine, but I'm having problem with the PCB. Looking in the web, the procedure I found was to first export a .pcb file (Protel 2.8 ASCII) and then import in Layout+ a max file. But when I try to import, instead the max file I just get a log file, where it sa
Take a look at the altium Designer 6 software, it has a very good translator from OrCad to Designer6. I recently got my company to swithed from OrCad to altium and it has turned out very well. You should really do a complete evaluation before switching, to make sure you get a tool that wil do what you want. Good luck.
Hi PCB newbie`s, To become a professional in PCB one should have Good knowledge on the following points : 1.Drawing Schematics in different tools/pkgs (altium,PADS, allegro,..etc) 2.Understanding the errors and procedure of rectifications 3.Board Details understanding 4.Datasheet understanding for footprint creation 5.Footprint Cr
Yes it is possible in altium. You have to define "Room" in altium for that and use the DRC settings to define the rules for that room.
The short answer is no. You can use a tool like CAMCAD provided you can get the BRD file into the five ASCII files required by CAMCAD. You can hire a company that specializes in file conversions. Or you can export an ODB++ or Gerber set and reverse engineer from a CAM Editor like CAM350. If you know someone with Alitum Designer, they can import th
Hi Friends, Can you please let me know the solution? Now i came up with the situation that, i got netlist from altium tool and have to import that in allegro. please let me know the procedures. Thanks, Nitan
allegro to PADS conversion-file-->import-->pads-->cad translator-->pads PADS to allegro conversion-it is need third part tool like altium (if you have first import the allegro file and then export in pads layout )
hi i'm using protel 99se and altium designer6 i did download th eklipper for protel 99se and ad6 how can i send my contact details for get muy fre licenece??? plz help me:cry:
i need some advice for choice a best PCB design in high frequency analog and high speed digital system? Which best between altium or allegro?
I know for high speed, tools like mentor, cadence and zuken are best/very good. But when they say high speed, are they talking 100mhz? or a PC motherboard type of high speed? Has anyone used altium Designer to make 6 or 8 layer boards. Has anyone successfully designed arm9 or arm11 boards (100-400mhz)? Is that feasible or if I need a higher end
No, altium Designer does not support single layer autorouting with jumpers. You would have to set up the routing rules for a two sided board, with routing cost adjusted to favor one side. You would then have to manually place jumpers. Likewise, allegro does not support single sided boards with Specctra autorouting. You would have to do the sa
altium designer V6 is last version of protel i think , i am using it and very good for PCB design , you can both design manually or by schematic and auto route , there are libraries for FPGAs .... , it has some special stuffs for FPGAs too ... more info on Protel ( DXP ) :
Check also Zuken I don't know how are the Orcad Family or altium. When I evaluated some years ago they didn't like me. But probably they are much better now. I would check that they have a powerfull central library management. Regards,
hi. how much time does it take for you guys, to design different PCBs, with different Layout tools? For example for me, with altium Designer: -x86 motherboard with 2 BGAs, 1100 components, 8-layers, high-speed DDR-400MHz-DIMM... took 2-3 months. -ARM9 board with 400 components, 4-layers, SDRAM-80MHz... took 3-4 weeks. Now, I am che
hi i want to convert my altium pcb files to allegro board files. someone said i have to do it like this: -save as protel ascii2.8 -import in orcad layout+ then save as orcad layout .max file -convert max to brd when i try to import in layout+, it starts, but then stops without any message. but if i open the generated log file, i find thi
I have a file *.brd created with allegro 15.x and I need to import it in altium Designer 6.8 but the CAD can't do it. May sameone give me some suggestion how I can import this PCB files? Thanks Dan
There is no direct way to do the conversion from allegro to Pads. Mentor does not offer a translator for that conversion, and Cadence does not export to a compatible format. It is possible to import allegro files into the newest version of altium Designer. Mentor does offer a translator that can go from altium Designer (...)
Let's start talking about "altium Summer 08", The main question in designer's community is what is new? What about old problems? We all love this tool, but we know its problems! - Is it officially released? or just beta versions? - I expect much faster tool, with better and high performance router. As a designer what do you expect from Altiu
Orcad Layout (Max) is a discontiued layout program that used to be part of the Orcad suite. When you say "Orcad" now, you're talking only about Orcad CIS schematic capture. allegro is the top-of-the-line (expensive) Cadence PCB layout software. It is difficult to learn, difficult to use, but powerful. Cadence now sells a stripped down version
Cadence says in their CADSTAR 10 brochure: PCB, Library and Schematic Translators CADSTAR accepts designs and libraries from Cadence, allegro and Orcad, Mentor Graphics PADS, altium Protel and P-CAD.
In altium software, it's call a "room". You can set up your options for rooms in the Project Options dialog (right click on the project name or use shortcut CO from the schematic). The settings are on the "Class Generation" tab. Once the components are assigned to a room, they can be manged together with PCB commands in the Design>>Rooms menu.
Look at this thread on the forum - this question has been asked before: The short answer is no. You can use a tool like CAMCAD provided you can get the BRD file into the five ASCII files required by CAMCAD. You can hire a company that specializes in file conversions. Or you can export an ODB++ or G

hi how do you guys control net segment lengths for compley net topologies in altium designer? What i found is that it supports only total etch length control, and that is it. The cadence allegro supports segment length nicely. the most advanced way in allegro is to select a net, export it to the signal explorer topology viewer, set up (...)
Hi, Do anybody knows/or haveing convertor for allegro board file to altium file. Thanks in advance Manjeet altium ( Summer 09) CAN import allegro files (.brd), but you must have both of them installed on computer.
In altium you can define room for constraint area and then in DRC you can define desired spacings for that particular room. You can also definr the spacings particulalry for BGA footprint only so inside the BGA the settings will be different from other areas.
it may not be able to do it, since Situs is a topological router. do you still have access to the allegro router (specctra). you can import and export specctra design files in altium.
hi in the past few years, there was a lot of development in altium designer, but somehow they never implemented a constraint manager like the cadence allegro's constraints manager. once i asked altium tech support, and they just didnt understand what i was talking about. without this feature, it is impossible to design for example a (...)

In your point of view I must first convert my allegro design file to altium format then convert it to protel99? there is not any direct conversion solution?
CAM350, Camtastic in altium, gerber tool in ORCAD - all they open gerber files. So, if your files are really gerber files they should be opened there. BTW, which program generated these files?
