  • Advance PCB Layout Course with Cadence Allegro!

    Hi Robert,
    Did you do the Advanced PCB Layout Course with Cadence OrCAD Allegro? I saw you did lessen 3 with Cadence on Youtube. If you did the whole course, that would be very helpful. Thanks

    No, we do not have Advanced PCB Layout course in Allegro and I am not planning to create it. The course is about PCB layout so ... most of the content applies on any CAD system - it is our the most CAD independent course.

    Altium is only used for demonstration - to show how it can be done and what to look for in your specific software. I know it would be helpful to demonstrate some of the features also in Allegro, just it is not so easy to create the course - it's a lot of work.

    So, if you are taking the course and using Allegro, the only question could be how to work on the course activities to practice specific things (the activity files are in Altium). However, some time ago we imported the board into Allegro and you can use it for the activities. Most activities are created the way, that specific things are deleted from the finished project and you will need to create them back. That should be possible. Here is link to the brd file:

    PS: Please what video are your referring to?

      Hi Robert,
      Thanks for your reply, much appreciated.
      The video is "How to do DDR3 T-Branch Length Matching (Cadence Allegro)", using the same board from your course that I am taking now. I followed it using Cadence Allegro, an awesome video.
      BTW, do you use the "Serpentine" feature in the Cadence layout technique. Can you give some tips on using the Serpentine routing feature?

        Thank you/ I have done length matching in Allegro and it works very well. PS: I asked cadence for a license (my old one expired) ... maybe in future I can make more videos in allegro
