    Translating Orcad netlist to Allegro Reply

    I have received a schematic design produced on 'Multisim' (Electronic Workbench), unfortunately no Allegro 3rd party format output is available, the nearest being a .asc Orcad file.

    Are any members aware of a translation script to convert a .asc file type to one acceptable to Allergo's - File > Import > Logic ... 'Other' tab input?

    I think orcad to allegro translator would right for you,
    but you have to rework the plane layer after translation.

    Alan,

    The Allegro 3rd Party netlist format is also known as a Telesis Netlist. See if Multisim has a netlist output in Telesis format.

    Hope this helps,

    RE: Translating Orcad netlist to Allegro Reply

    Hi All,

    I am also facing a similsr problem with third party netlist importing. Can anybody please share a sample telesis netlist for reference?

    I had tried to create a telesis netlist from Capture. The netlist is generated, but while importing to allegro I am getting an error messages like "ERROR: Cannot find device file for '33E' " and "ERROR: Expected ';' , found an illegal character, line ignored".

    Please let me know what is the device file and how it can be generated from a schematic entry tool.

    Thanks,
    Babu

    Export a netlist from a working board and the format will be readily apparent. There is documentation online in Allegro for the format.
    OrCAD supports generation of TELESIS but who uses that anymore with the packager netlister that's been out for years?
