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.
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
- Reuse a hierarchical block and associated layout in another design
