  • Extract clines and vias from a board file
    Hello All, I am trying to extract the via and cline information for specific symbols on a board with SKILL.

    Hello Cadence Users, I have tried to use the non-graphical option to speed up the building of a board using the Allegro command line and an input script but the run time for the board build is still too long.
