"This was a great class that gave me a good understanding of the workflow for designing a board."
David Swartzendruber, Spacelabs Healthcare

Course Description

In this course, you create board-level schematic designs with Design Entry HDL. You explore the integration between Design Entry HDL and other tools in the design flow, including the Allegro® PCB Editor. You follow the design flow by creating a schematic and taking it all the way through board layout.

Although board layout is introduced as part of the front-to-back flow, this is not a board layout course. Also, schematic or footprint library development is not included in this course. See the Related Courses below.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Set up new projects
  • Create a flat, multisheet design
  • Check the design
  • Use part tables
  • Package a design
  • Create and customize a bill of materials
  • Build a hierarchical design
  • Use schematic properties to control part placement
  • Use the Constraint Manager to define high-speed routing requirements in Design Entry HDL
  • Transfer the design to the PCB Editor
  • Place parts manually
  • Autoroute with the PCB Router
  • Compare the schematic and layout
  • Synchronize design differences
  • Incorporate engineering changes
  • Link projects together in a team-design scenario
