    Allegro -> DxDesigner pinswap (back annotation)

    crawforso

      Due to corporate policy, we use DxDesigner for schematic entry, and Allegro for PCB design.

       

      Project

      Design of a PCB incorporating a large CPLD (200+ pins).

       

      Problem Statement

      While routing the PCB with Allegro, we need to swap pins to achieve optimal routing.

      How do we back annotate pins swapped in Allegro (PCB) to DxDesigner (Schematic) ?

       

      thanks very much

          We have many customers using DxDesigner to Allegro using several different options in the software.  For example, this is supported if the design is created in a netlist flow or in the independent software release.  It is not supported if designed as an Expedition flow with CES rules.
