If you have any success story of conversion from Zuken(CADSTAR) to Allegro, please let me know.
Could you be a bit more specific about what you are looking for. Are you trying to import an entire design from Zuken into Allegro. Since this post was on the SI forum, are you trying to import topologies from Zuken into the SI tools? Regards, Charlie
Cadence does not support a direct interface from Zuken to Allegro. There are third party companys that can provide this service. One company that comes to mind is Router Solutions Inc (http://www.rsi-inc.com). Hope this helps. Charlie
Thank you very much for your reply.I guess the Allegro SI can't directly import Zuken data.
Allegro has the "Redac In" but it doesn't work on the latest versions of Cadstar databases. Mentor makes a convertor to PADS from where you can save to a pads ascii file which allegro will import. I still haven't figured out how much is lost or changed when doing this. As well, you need the translator and a pads license.
Hi, Zuken have developed an Allegro PCB SI interface that you need to get from Zuken, I don't know whether its for free or a cost.
