    Starting new PCB layout

    jbarina

      I'm very new to the expedition world and have a few questions.

      I'm starting a design that was perviously designed in Cadence Allegro.

      The plan here is to load into expedition a .kyn netlist made manually from the design Allegro ascii netlist. Are

      there any converters available to make the job easier? Does anyone have a sample to make sure I have the format

      correct?

      I have the outline drawn in expedition and have the layers (8) setup. The tool does not let me change the layers 4 and 5 from

      signals to power planes. The Plane Assignments button and pull down are in the unusable state.

      Also the CES button and pull down are in the unusable state. Maybe because there are no nets in the .pcb yet?

      Thanks for any help in advance,

      john
