Cadence is committed to keeping design teams highly productive. A range of support offerings and processes helps Cadence users focus on reducing time-to-market and achieving silicon success. Overview
PCB design doesn’t have to be a manual process. With a real-time constraint driven flow, you can easily set up your design rules and visually verify that your unique requirements are being met.This way you’ll have less stress at sign off, reduce design re-spins and improve time to market.
High speed and high frequency designs contain critical signals that need to be managed early on.With real-time analysis checks, you can identify and resolve any conflicts between signal lengths and complete your designs in a fraction of the time.
Designs are vulnerable to signal and power integrity issues due to high data transfer rates, noise, improper component placement and even poor power delivery networks to name a few. Poor SI and PI results in weak functionality and your design failing in the field.To avoid and ease these issues, it’s important to simulate your design to identify and adjust those signals and planes that may be causing issues.
Successfully bringing a product to market requires the efforts of several team members (whether they are working locally or remotely). Manually sharing design updates could cost you and your team time, productivity, and possibility of design errors.With a collaborative design environment, it’s easy to avoid conflicting design data and get to market faster.
Not every project you work on has to start from scratch. With existing and proven design IP you can save time and prevent design errors.By reusing known good modules and constraints you can easily streamline your PCB design process and get to market with verified technology faster.
Routing doesn’t have to be a manual process.With various routing modes and checks available, you can quickly complete complex routes on dense boards.Simply avoid rule violations and meet electrical, mechanical, spacing, and manufacturing requirements with the help of real-time visual cues.
Packing complex technologies in a small area has its challenges, but with HDI technology and embedded components it’s possible to maintain signal integrity and performance.Shorter signal paths and via stub elimination make it easy to create reliable, powerful and compact designs.
Real-time manufacturing checks such as Design for Fabrication (DFF), Design for Assembly (DFA), and Design for Test (DFT) can help you identify potential problems while you design so you can avoid costly re-spins that could derail your project timeline.With these checks and detailed documentation, you can complete your design fast and signoff with confidence.
With Allegro TimingVision, everything is right there in front of you—this simple fact allows the routing process to be sped up dramatically, from the manual routing efforts we have seen that can take up to four weeks, down to four days.

The AiDT feature in Allegro PCB Designer ended our frustrations over all of the time we were spending on routing and tuning. All of hours we're saving as a team [now] can be directed toward new project requests for the business.
