Overview You and your design teams' singular focus is on perfecting your designs. Components are a fundamental part of every design that connects both the ECAD and the MCAD worlds. The risks of getting them wrong are incalcu- lable. That's why your designers spend so much of their day to get them right. Even so, you and your designers would rather spend time on the real design. Designers need a way to ensure quality and accuracy while reducing the time spent on library creation. The Allegro ECAD-MCAD Library Creator helps your team improve the quality and accuracy of the library. Connect your ECAD and MCAD libraries to make sure you have a complete picture of all your components. With 2D footprints and 3D models complete and in sync, your team can spend less time creating libraries, and more time on design. Benefits Create new standards-compliant libraries in a fraction of the time Everything comes to a screeching halt when engineers can't find a component in the library. Progress on the design stops until that part model is created and the footprint is placed back in the design. The Allegro ECAD-MCAD Library Creator reduces creation time for new packages by 60-80%. Designers can choose from thousands of detailed 3D package models in the provided repos- itory, create new packages from over 100 provided parametric templates, or leverage existing 3D models directly. It automatically extracts and leverages geometric details from existing 3D models, dramatically reducing time and increasing accuracy when creating footprints. Footprints can be generated from the package based on existing standards such as IPC-7351 or customized rules to support internal practices or specific manufacturing needs. Using multiple rule sets, alternate footprints can be rapidly generated from the same package. • Automatically generate packages from templates and existing 3D models • Rule and template editor for customization • Native support for MCAD 3D models Components, parts, and libraries must be right. Getting them right often requires a significant time investment from engineers, time that could be spent on other high-value design activities. Your component library isn't just footprints, symbols, or parametric data, it's also 3D MCAD models. The Cadence ® Allegro ® ECAD-MCAD Library Creator allows you to create new standards- compliant libraries in a fraction of the time, synchronize your ECAD and MCAD libraries, and easily retarget your existing libraries for different technologies. Your design team can spend less time creating libraries, and more time on design.
