I downloaded footprint of a ic form texas, i want to import the footprint to altium desginer but it's only have footprint for these program: Cadence Allegro v13.6+, Mentor Boardstation v8.7+,Mentor PADS-PowerPCB v3.5+
the candence folder contains .pad .psm .dra, but altium just open .alg or .brd file form candence!
i google and found out these formats are old version of candence and must use DBdoctor to change it to new ver. i tried so many times but i didn't mange to convert it! for exapmle i've got 3 files but just 1 input in dbdoctor menu!anyway if you can help through this,i will so appreciate about it.
and for next steps,is anyway to convert it to .brd so altium designer can open it?
and another issue it's better to mention i've got .abs file(Mentor PADS-PowerPCB) for this IC,but there is no *.D file for making Lib file from it.so i choose candence files.
I'm pretty sure that Altium will convert the library from Texas Instruments just fine. If you really need it updated just tell me which footprint it is. Probably just as easy however to create from scratch in the new tool.
In reply to redwire:
the SN74AUC2G02DCUR model,forth ic from top.
In reply to youngEagle:
Done. Uprev'd to 16.2
tnx buddy, can u teach me how can do this, beacuase i've got 5 another ICs like this,and should do it by myself.
and one thing more,my orcad version is 16.0 and now have got error that likes "this file have new feature!update ur orcad" :(
i didn't find any update icon or tab in menu moreover my internet is 26KB,so any solution?
Changing revision of a part occurs normally when opened in the tool but in your case the symbol is too old.
In those cases, you need to open a command line window in Windows (cmd) and type "uprev symbolname.dra" at the command line.
Documentation for uprev is in the manuals.
you can also do it via dbdoctor_ui found in the Cadence Start menu
i had error:
Performing UPREV on the database - C:/Users/Ardavan/DCU8.dra Performing dbfix13 to bring DB up to REV13C:\Users\Eagle>echo off Done dbfixCannot open message file, env path is possibly set incorrectly.Error in system init = -1mh_get_msg_text(): MSProcessShortMsg() err = -4_mh_domessage(): MS error -4 for message id 2049ERROR: Revision to REV13 failed!ERROR: Uprev failed!
what does it mean? echo off?env path?
like dbdoctor i 'd got error!
