5 1 Introduction Overview PCB design studio is a complete printed circuit board (PCB) design solution that integrates PCB tools for creating projects, managing libraries, capturing schematics, packaging, physical placement and routing, and producing manufacturing output. This manual provides you with the information you need to get up and running with Cadence Design System s schematic capture tool Concept HDL and premier layout tool, Allegro. The high-level project flow to create a PCB is as follows: 1. Set up and manage the project using Project Manager. 2. Capture the schematic using Concept HDL. 3. Import the schematic data from Concept HDL to Allegro. 4. Lay out the design in Allegro. 5. Route the design using SPECCTRA. 6. Backannotate to Concept HDL. 7. Create the manufacturing output using Allegro. About Concept HDL Concept HDL is a design environment that supports behavioral and structural design descriptions that are designed using text and graphics. Concept HDL comes with a large library of schematic symbols and EDIF schematic and netlist interfaces and supports EDIF and VHDL models. Concept HDL accommodates teams that work on complex design projects by supporting a top-down approach to design that incorporates hierarchical stack editing functions for quick architectural design. January Product Version 14.2

6 Introduction Concept HDL lets a design architect create a top-level schematic and refine underlying areas while team members work on their respective sub-designs. One engineer can work on a schematic if he or she references the next engineer s schematic externally through a hierarchical reference (hierarchical block). A note on this document This Getting Started guide provides a high-level description of the front-to-back (schematicto-design) flow. It does not include details on the types of files generated during the transfer of logic between Concept HDL and Allegro, nor does it cover any issues related to property translation between the tools. For this type of information, please see the documentation associated with Concept HDL, Allegro, and SPECCTRA. January Product Version 14.2

Project Manager Engineering Input Concept Allegro PCB PSpice A/D SPECCTRAQuest signal explorer SPECCTRA Setting Up a Project with Project Manager The logical directory structure for designs is Lib:Cell:View:File. Each library, cell, and view is a physical directory that is organized as shown in the following table: Directory Lib Description A directory of cells. January Product Version 14.2

9 Cell View A design directory that contains all of the data for the design. The directory is organized into views. For example, design cpu can have the views schematic, symbol, chips, package and physical. The configurations of a design are also stored as views in the cell directory. A directory that contains all of the data of a particular unit of a design. For example, all the files for a schematic are in the sch_n view; where n can be the version number of the design. All the information for a symbol representation of the design is in the sym_n view. The packaged design data is in the package view. Configurations, including the default cfg_package, cfg_verilog, and cfg_vhdl configurations, are also views in a cell. The following shows a typical Lib:Cell:View directory structure: To set up a project and directory structure with Project Manager, perform the following steps: 1. Invoke the Project Manager from the Start Cadence menu in the Windows task bar. or January Product Version 14.2

14 Starting Concept HDL Start Concept HDL from the Project Manager in one of the following ways: Choose Tools Concept Click on the Design Entry button. To start Concept HDL from the windows task bar, choose Start Programs Cadence Concept HDL. Concept HDL Design Flow The schematic layout design process consists of the following general flow. You can tailor the tasks in the flow to your specific design needs. Refer to the online information in Concept HDL for more information about the operations in each step. Step 1 Develop libraries. Create symbols. Create schematic-to-allegro mapping (for example, pin numbers to package types). January Product Version 14.2

15 Step 2 Create a new project. Step 3 Decide on a flat or hierarchical design style. Step 4 If you are creating a hierarchical design, create a symbol. Step 5 Create another schematic module. Step 6 Assign constraints to your design. Step 7 Assign reference designators. Step 8 Create the physical netlist. Step 9 Backannotate the schematic. Step 10 Import the netlist into Allegro. Invoke Project Manager to set up the project. Select the libraries. Select the top-level design name. Add a page border to empty page. Add components from the library. Use the physical part table browser to specify the properties of each logical symbol. Add connectivity to your design. Add the correct PORT symbol (Inport, Output, IOport) for each signal that interfaces with another module. Add more pages and repeat step 3. Use the GenView utility to create a symbol that represents the schematic. Customize the symbol that comes out of the automated utility. If you are designing hierarchically, repeat Step 3 to create another design. Add the symbol that represents the previously created design. Using the Attribute form, attach properties to the components, pins and signals. You use these properties to control the board layout process. You can also pass this data into the High Speed SPECCTRAQuest environment. You can assign reference designators in Concept, or you can let Packager-XL (the physical netlister) assign designators. Packager-XL does not change any reference designators that you assign in Concept. Execute Packager-XL to create the netlist for Allegro. Provide the pin numbers and reference designators as properties on the schematic. The Design Sync option of the Project Manager creates the netlist and creates or updates the Allegro board. January Product Version 14.2

16 Step 11 Layout the board with Allegro. Step 12 Export the logic to Concept. See Allegro Design Flow on page 18. Backannotate the schematic with your Allegro changes.

23 3 PCB Design Studio Options In addition to the products you get in PCB Design Studio, you can also add the following tools to enhance your design initiatives. This chapter contains the following information: CheckPlus for Checking Your Design on page 24 Variant Editor for Creating Versions on page 26 signal explorer for Inter-connect Analysis on page 28 January Product Version 14.2

24 PCB Design Studio Options CheckPlus for Checking Your Design CheckPlus is an electronic design rule checker that automatically detects a wide range of common design errors and oversights that can often occur in the design entry process. As project complexity increases, more rules, constraints, and properties must be a part of the initial phases of the design. CheckPlus ensures that accurate data is tested before moving to downstream processes. Error Checking CheckPlus checks your design for problems such as missing terminators, insufficient power supplies, short circuits, unconnected pins, constraint range violations, and the use of mismatched technologies. Automatic Highlighting CheckPlus automatically flags violations of predetermined design parameters and constraints, advising you of errors and oversights with on-screen reports and schematic highlighting. Customizable You can tailor the checking process based on company-specific knowledge, design practices, and manufacturing constraints. CheckPlus features include: A basic rule set to facilitate immediate use Alerts for common errors and design oversights with on-screen reports and schematic highlighting Customizable parameters and messages that provide flexibility for a perfect fit into your environment Quick feedback through a high-speed evaluation engine Centralized rule checking and rule development tasks January Product Version 14.2

25 PCB Design Studio Options An advanced rule development language (ARL) that allows for the addition of project- or company-specific rules through the CheckPlus toolkit. January Product Version 14.2

26 PCB Design Studio Options Variant Editor for Creating Versions You can use the Variant Editor to create and manage designs that have minor differences. These differing designs are called variants. Each variant includes a common base design consisting of a set of core elements. The presence or absence of a component, or slight differences in a component s properties (such as, resistance or voltage), for example, can cause variations. The Variant Editor reduces the maintenance effort of a design set, decreases the development time by providing faster time to market, reduces the chance of errors, and reduces the cost through consistent part selection. The Variant Editor allows you to: Define variant design components by using the Concept Component Browser that lists physical part table (PPT) rows. To simplify finding components from the Component List, you can filter components from the list of available components. Generate BOM that reflects the electrical stuff list for a variant. Generate a delta list of components from the base design for a variant. Generate a comparative BOM of different variants. Annotate a special designator to any component in the schematic that contains variant data. Merge a Variant database and a base schematic with the understanding that either the reference designator or the canonical path property must be in sync. Annotate variant data from the Variant database into the schematic. Generate the interface file that is read by Allegro to create variant assembly drawings. January Product Version 14.2

27 PCB Design Studio Options Cross-probe between the Concept-HDL schematic and the Variant user interface (UI). January Product Version 14.2

28 PCB Design Studio Options signal explorer for Inter-connect Analysis signal explorer is an entry-level PCB interconnect analysis tool available as an add-on option to Allegro studio. Using signal explorer, you can create and edit a virtual prototype of a net topology. You can simulate the circuit topology and examine the simulation results. After analyzing the simulation results, you can explore different circuit topologies by repositioning parts and modifying the parameters and part models of the circuit, adjusting the simulation setup, and resimulating. You can repeat this process multiple times to experiment with various what-if scenarios until the desired results are realized. You can save and reuse topology files and their attributes later. Allegro studio signal explorer offers a number of helpful capabilities for users who will typically be designing high-speed and high-performance digital systems that contain large applicationspecific ICs (ASICs), or processors, that communicate with multiple sub-system components. These include: Graphical topology exploration and analysis Allows the engineer to rapidly develop and review interconnect topology effectiveness and investigate topology element sensitivity Use of industry-standard IBIS simulation models Eliminates the need to create or translate models before using the tool Extraction of routed interconnect for analysis and what-if exploration Removes the need for random post-route interconnect editing to improve signal integrity Scalability Can be scaled into full constraint-driven place and route with advanced analysis capabilities for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and powerplane optimization. Can also define topology templates containing electrical constraints to drive PCB placement January Product Version 14.2
