Cadence PCB High Speed Option

Available to rent for periods of 1 month

 

PCB High Speed Option

 

With proven design time reduction of up to 80% using features like Timing Vision and AiDT and AiPT, the PCB High Speed Option is available to rent for periods as short as 1 month and as long as 2 years

 

Of special interest to designers incorporating DDR4, PCIe, SATA and High Speed Ethernet.

 

“The Cadence solution reduces our PCB development time by 80 percent”

Gisbert Thomke, Group Leader, IBM R&D Lab

 

"With this powerful enhancement to the routing functionality, Cadence have managed to up the game and take PCB design to next level of evolution. I can see myself using these key features a lot within our forthcoming designs and of course ultimately, it will save us a lot of time and effort into getting what we want done quickly and effectively"

“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.”

Bill Munroe, Principal PCB Designer, Cavium

 

 

"The AiDT (Auto-interactive Delay Tuning) feature in Allegro PCB Designer ended our frustrations over all of the time we were spending on routing and tuning. All of the hours we're saving as a team can be directed toward new project requests for the business."

Sky Huang, Deputy Director of Computer-aided Engineering Pegatron

Allegro Auto-Interactive Routing Technology Overview
The Cadence® Allegro® platform provides a unique set of auto-interactive technologies to quickly and efficiently accelerate routing of highly constrained interfaces. This new set of auto-interactive technologies combines the intuition of the layout designer with the power and intelligence of the route engine that automates the process. Auto-interactive technologies can be applied to enhance all three phases of routing– planning, routing, and tuning/optimization.
