Cadence Helps JDSU Produce “First-Time-Right” Optical Network Tester Board
Test and measurement leader reduces design cycle and project cost with Cadence Allegro technology

JDSU is a global leader in communications test and measurement solutions and optical products. When the company began work on a next-generation optical network tester board with complex design and manufacturing requirements and an aggressive timeline, it turned to Cadence for field programmable gate array (FPGA)/printed circuit board (PCB) co-design and global routing technologies.

Using Cadence® Allegro® FPGA System Planner and Cadence Allegro Global Route Environment, JDSU was able to produce a “first-time-right” board. The design team easily routed in the fixed number of layers in half the time it would have normally taken.
