What's Good About DEHDL “How To” Videos? The Secret's in the 16.6 Release!

Comments(0)Filed under: SPB, Design Entry HDL, ConceptHDL, PCB, Design Entry, Allegro Design Entry, Allegro 16.5, hierarchical schematics, flat schematics, electrical constraints, Allegro 16.6, PCB design videos

While there are several videos available for Allegro Design Entry HDL (DEHDL) in Cadence Online Support as well as in the product installation documentation folder ($CDSROOT/doc), there are times when a new specific video is produced for product features. Of course, there are many videos available for all the SPB products. Recently, several new videos have been produced for some of the more common functionality areas of DEHDL. These videos can be utilized by design engineers who would like a quick refresher on the best practices/recommended techniques to use.

Read on for more details…

As you may recall, it’s easy to quickly find product videos on Cadence Online Support. Simply navigate to http://support.cadence.com and at the top links section, choose Resources > Video Library. In this next screen, depending upon the products you’ve filtered in the “my preferences” section,  you will see the most recent videos posted:

If you click on the  “View all content for my products:” link at the bottom, you will see all the available videos.

One of our most expert application engineers - Henk Van Haaren – has taken care to provide you with not only the details of specific product and flow capabilities in a PowerPoint format (for quick reference), but also a demonstration on how the feature works! He has developed 12 videos which can be viewed in a quick 10 minutes or so. The content reflects the most efficient usage methods that Henk has dicussed with many customers over the years.


Here’s the complete list:


Thanks to Henk for his work in helping DEHDL designers become more efficient in utilizing our products!

Please share your experiences in viewing and utilizing the content available in these new videos.
