Allegro PCB Designer

Constraint-driven PCB design

Allegro PCB Designer quickly takes simple or complex designs from concept to production in a constraint-driven design system. Its scalable based plus options model allows designers to cost-effectively match the technological and methodological needs of small to large companies and projects.

Speeds designs from placement and routing through to manufacturing with powerful features such as design partitioning, RF design capabilities, and interconnect design planning. Production-proven to increase productivity and help engineers quickly ramp up to volume production.

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.
