Cadence Design Systems announces the addition of PCB (Printed Circuit Board) RF (Radio Frequency) technology and design methodology to the Cadence® Allegro® PCB Design XL and GXL offerings. These additional capabilities address the key challenges customers are facing when designing PCBs with high-frequency and wireless design requirements. The versions of the Allegro PCB Design offerings provide RF-aware technology, a front-to-back flow, and interfaces to simulation, which help PCB designers achieve shorter, more predictable design cycles by better ensuring that RF circuits match design intent. The suite of RF-aware capabilities, now available in Allegro PCB Design, include intelligent layout for parametrically creating and editing RF geometires, a flexible shape editor and data-aware bi-directional IFF interfaces.
