Official PCB Layout Training Company for HP Worldwide, CA Design is Conducting Courses on Allegro PCB Layout and Constraint Management for HP employees March 9-12th in San Diego, CA.

CA Design announces that founder Robert Chandler, a twenty-plus year PCB Design veteran, will be instructing two courses for Hewlett-Packard engineers in Allegro PCB Layout and Constraint Management to be held in San Diego, California, March 9-12, 2010.

Allegro PCB Layout (Editor) will be the focus of three days of instruction with Constraint Management (Electrical Constraints) as the subject for the final day of training. The courses are intended for HP design engineers, PCB designers, PCB layout designers, managers, and others interested in learning about using a constraint-driven system to produce simple to complex designs in a scalable platform.

Instruction will be given from an end user's point-of-view and will take attendees through the entire Cadence® Allegro® PCB Editor process - from setting up designs to libraries and processes - all while teaching short-cuts and offering helpful hints along the way. The fourth day of training will concentrate on Constraint Management and encompass everything from setting up a board file for CMS topics to using specific and relative propagation delays.

Cadence® has this to say about their PCB Design product: "With its comprehensive feature set, Allegro® PCB Design offers the leading physical and electrical constraint-driven PCB layout and interconnect routing system. The fully integrated design flow includes design creation, library creation, placement, interactive routing and editing, automatic routing, and interfaces for manufacturing and mechanical CAD. The user interface is intuitive, easy-to-use, and consistent throughout the design flow. Large, dense PCB designs with high-speed interfaces can utilize Global Routing Environment technology for intelligent interconnect planning and routing automation..."
