Allegro Design Authoring

Efficient definition and constraint management

Allegro Design Authoring enables system designers to create design intent quickly. It provides the critical first step in PCB design definition and constraint management that keeps the design flow on track.

Cadence® Allegro® Design Authoring is an enterprise-enabled design creation solution that allows schematic designers to create complex designs quickly and efficiently. It provides advanced productivity features such as reuse of previous schematic designs as blocks or sheets—partially or completely

Oriented around team-based development, Allegro Design Authoring allows schematic designers and layout engineers to work in parallel. Users can capture physical and electrical constraints and assign design rules with the embedded Allegro Constraint Manager. Integrated with Allegro AMS Simulator for analog and digital simulation and SI analysis, Design Authoring also offers multiple options for FPGA integration.


  • Provides schematic and HDL/Verilog® design input
