Cadence Design Systems Inc. announced a new release of its Allegro system interconnect design platform with features designed to shorten the PCB design cycle and provide significant productivity gains.

According to Cadence, the Allegro platform v15.2 takes constraint-driven PCB design to the next level and brings multiple new products to market that address the ever-evolving design challenges of IC packaging and multi-gigahertz (MGH) signals. It [Allegro platform v15.2] introduces innovative collaborative design and library data management solutions, the company added.

New constraints across the Allegro platform products are able to account for critical signal delays inherent in IC packages and vias. These constraints eliminate the need for designers to link to the package database or manually account for these critical signal delays, allowing engineers more flexibility and enabling increased accuracy during the design process.

A key product in the latest Allegro platform release - the Allegro Design Entry HDL, provides front-end support for the creation and simulation of equivalent extended nets in design entry. It also helps enhance productivity through improved page management operations and improved constraint application across signal nets.

The release also introduces new features and technologies for the platform's Allegro PCB Editor, the Allegro PCB SI and the Allegro Constraint Manager. The Allegro PCB Editor adds UNDO/REDO capability and interactive etch tuning functionality that provides real-time feedback. The Allegro PCB SI adds improvements for ease of use, support for IBIS 4.0, integration with a 3D field solver for package design, and support for new rules which can shorten post layout verification time, and the Allegro Constraint Manager can boost productivity with a new properties worksheet and usability improvements.
