    Allegro IC Package Reply

    Dear Sir,

    My team is using Allegro 15.7 PCB Layout Cadence software. We want to use Allegro v13.6 IC package provided by Analog Devices. But due to different versions the 13.2v Package is not supported in 15.7v. We tried using "db doctor" but we had some errors.
    I am attaching the Version 13.2 zip file of the IC footprint.

    Please suggest what do we do?

    Thanks and regards,

    The upreved part is attached - this is upreved in 15.7 - I've opened it in 15.7 to make sure it opens OK.

    Hi andrew,

    I also tried it to convert v.15.7. But didn't succeed. Please let me know how did you do it. We have PCB Editor v.15.7 and
    v.16.0. And also tell me, how can run the db doctor.

    Thanks,
    Shiva.

    The steps I took were:-

    Run DB Doctor (Start->Programs->Cadence SPB 1*.*->PCB Editor Utilities->DB Doctor)
    In the Input design section add the input file (*.pad, then *.psm, then *.dra - run once for each type)
    Click on Check to run DB Doctor, which will uprev and run DB Doctor
    Then open the files in Allegro - the dra gets opened and not the psm.

    The psm is created from the dra - and used when placing parts in Allegro.

    The same process is used to uprev 15.7 and 16.0 - just point at the correct SPB installation for the correct DB Doctor
