Course TitleAllegro PCB SI Foundations v16.5
Course CategorySystem Interconnect Design – Allegro & OrCAD
Duration2 Days
Product Version16.5

Course Description

In this course, you use the Allegro® PCB SI XL software to develop design rules for high-speed designs. You add the resulting physical and electrical constraints to the design through topology templates. These constraints drive the routing of nets on the printed circuit board. You run preroute and postroute signal simulations to analyze the PCB for reflection, simultaneous switching, crosstalk, and other high-speed design factors.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:


o   Create, extract, and explore topologies

o   Run solution space analysis

o   Create an electrical constraint set

o   Apply constraints to drive placement and routing

o   Run postroute DRC check

o   Use template revision to update the ECSet applied to the nets

o   Analyze the routed board design for signal integrity

o   Create a DesignLink between boards and use it to run multiboard simulation

Software Used in This Course

o   Allegro PCB SI XL

o  Allegro Sigrity PowerSI 

Software Release(s)

o   SPB 16.5
