Allegro PCB Design

One of the PCB layout and PCB design software packages 911EDA supports is Allegro.  Allegro is a powerful tool requiring designers with significant experience and expertise to properly utilize it to its fullest capabilities.

PCB Layout and Routing

With shrinking design cycles and a growing number of nets with constraints, it goes without saying that you need PCB design methodologies that increase predictability and accelerate design turnaround. 

Cadence® Allegro PCB layout and routing technology offers a scalable, easy-to-use, constraint-driven PCB design solution for simple to complex PCBs, including those with RF etch components. It also includes innovative new auto-interactive technologies that efficiently and quickly accelerate routing of highly constrained high-speed interfaces. Cadence PCB design tools streamline the process for ECAD-MCAD collaboration using industry-standard EDMD (IDX) schema and design data hand-off to manufacturing through modern, industry-standard IPC-2581. 

Auto-interactive routing technology

This new set of auto-interactive technologies combines the intuition of the layout designer with the power and intelligence of the route engine that automates the process. Auto-interactive technologies can be applied to enhance all three phases of routing– planning, routing, and tuning/optimization.
