I have a design to modify, unfortunately the original is in PADS 9.3. I have Allegro 16.0 and having lots of problems trying to get it to load.
Anyone out there done this before and got it to work? I can send the files (asc).... one is PCB and the other the schematic.
I am willing to pay for a "good usable conversion for 16.0". Anyone????
Just found this in the help topics:
"The PADS translator reads PADS-Perform version 4 and version 6 ASCII database files and writes an Allegro PCB Editor board database. Due to format differences, other types of input files cannot be read. Perform can be used to convert an ASCII database file to a version 4 or 6 file. For further information on how to do this, see the PADS documentation."
That may explain the problem. Right?
