Hello, I have a BRD file that contains a large amount of testpoints. I have supplied the test house a board file and they extracted test points of their choosing. Now my fixture might differ from their selected testpoints. Does anyone know of a way to automatically read an ascii testpoint file and compare it to the Allegro testprep fixture one I have. I really need to lock down my fixture to match the test houses fixture for future ECNs. Any help would be appreciated.
Dear ExpertsI have a similar problem to this thread. I am trying to extract a list ofnetname, device pins and x y coordinates and the layer they are on (top or bottom). I'm also looking to do the same with vias - netname, x y and layer (top orbottom if they are blind vias.I originally had this for the extract(a) file. But couldn't find a parameter for 'layer'.
COMPOSITE_PADNET_NAMEREFDESPIN_NUMBERPIN_XPIN_YEND Will the following work?FULL_GEOMETRYCLASS= MANUFACTURING SUBCLASS = PROBE_BOTTOMNET_NAMEREFDESPIN_NUMBERPIN_XPIN_YEND Then I would create a second file for the top:FULL_GEOMETRYCLASS= MANUFACTURING SUBCLASS = PROBE_TOPNET_NAMEREFDESPIN_NUMBERPIN_XPIN_YEND Is probe_top a way to get the components on the top of hte PCB?Then for the vias I was going to do this:FULL_GEOMETRYCLASS= MANUFACTURING SUBCLASS = PROBE_BOTTOMNET_NAMEVIA_XVIA_YENDFULL_GEOMETRYCLASS= MANUFACTURING SUBCLASS = PROBE_TOPNET_NAMEVIA_XVIA_YEND
So I can identify which vias are on which side and which components are on which side.Any insight would be appreciated.Regards,Splash
