Cadence Design Systems Inc. announced it has extended its product-segmentation strategy to the Cadence Allegro system interconnect design platform and is now able to offer a tiered range of products to PCB designers.

According to the press release, this latest Cadence product-segmentation strategy to provide customers with multiple levels of technology is tailored to specific levels of design complexity. The new release of Allegro platform offers a range of products scaled to different PCB design complexities and also includes Allegro Design Workbench XL and Allegro Design Publisher XL.

The new Allegro offerings comprise three levels: L, XL and GXL. The Allegro L product series provides PCB design products aimed at solving mainstream design challenges. The Allegro XL provides advanced PCB design products that address more complex and high-end design challenges through integrated constraint-driven automation and distributed team-based design productivity. And the Allegro GXL product series provides differentiated PCB design products targeting leading-edge design challenges such as advanced package co-design and multi-GHz SI analysis.

"Designers are increasingly expected to integrate and juggle the multiple requirements of new high-speed interfaces such as PCI Express and DDR2. Our customers are looking for technologies tailored to their specific levels of design needs," said Charlie Giorgetti, corporate vice president of marketing for the Allegro and Virtuoso design platforms at Cadence, in a statement. "This latest release and segmentation of the Allegro platform is another example of how Cadence continues to lead the way in providing well thought out design solutions to the silicon-package-board co-design market segment."

Allegro L, XL and GXL will be available in July 2006.
