[PCB_FORUM] Re: Does anyone know where to find what's new in 16.0 in pdf form?

Thanks Austin,
 That's the same webpage I found. I was going to copy it over if I couldn't
get my hands on the official PDF. Looks like you have done most of the work
for me already!
Thanks again,
Dharma

Here is the only thing I've found.  It's not a PDF file, but a URL that has
some info:

http://www.ema-eda.com/products/whatsnew_allegro.aspx?campaignID=20

Regards,

and, here is the info on what it says so it's archived if they remove the

What's New in Cadence Allegro 16.0 Platform Next-generation PCB design


Discover how the CadenceR AllegroR platform improves design efficiency and
designer productivity by dramatically shortening the learning curve in the
adoption of new solutions and enhancing ease-of-use.

The Allegro platform is the leading physical and electrical
constraint-driven PCB layout and interconnect system. Now, it has been
updated to include a new methodology for physical and spacing constraints
using the Allegro constraint management system, a common cockpit throughout
the entire design flow. Other updates include support for algorithmic
modeling and package parasitic, improved circuit simulation and statistical
analysis, seamless scalability with OrCAD products, enhanced collaboration,
and a new user interface for improved productivity and usability.

The Allegro 16.0 platform is now supported in Windows VistaT Enterprise.


Cadence Allegro PCB Editor

Usability enhancements within the display canvas and to the command
structure Redesigned color/visibility GUI with global and shape transparency
controls Improved visibility, additional color support, smoother panning and
zooming Enhancements made to the underlying graphics system, based on OpenGL
engine Context-sensitive editing paradigm built on selecting database
objects first, followed by command Interactive and automatic controls for
component fanout (pin escaping) Physical and spacing constraints
incorporated in the Allegro constraint management system Mouse wheel support
actions supported will be zoom in, zoom out, and change active subclass of
TOP to BOTTOM Design Parameter Editor to setup, access, change and review
most often used parameters Application modes which automatically selects
actions based on the object selected

Cadence Allegro PCB SI

Serial link design improvements (BER prediction, bathtub curve profiles,
channel compliance through statistical analysis) S-Parameter DC
extrapolation improvements Support for analytical coupled via model during
topology extraction Improvements for post-layout analysis of source
synchronous signals (usability, comprehensive simulation, slew-rate
measurements, de-rating
tables)
Estimated crosstalk table generation enhancements Incorporating package and
IC parasitics to improve accuracy without sacrificing performance Static IR
drop analysis

Advanced constraints in constraint management system

Advanced constraints for managing advanced I/O interfaces, such as PCI
Express, DDR2, and SATA, using formulas, user-defined constraints, and
custom measurements Component workbook in the Allegro constraint management
system Custom stimulus integration

Cadence Allegro System Architect GXL

Accelerated design of differential connectivity( connectivity, DRCs)
Enhanced schematic generation (cross-reference generated schematics, routing
preserve, block flattening) Pin properties in connectivity pane

Cadence Allegro Design Publisher

Option of true color or B/W content rich PDF files Integrated attribute form
to view net and component attributes Optimization for Adobe Reader 8.0
Ability to view in Design colors, but print in B/W

Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL

Improved Design Navigation using Sheet Names Controlled deployment using
directive locking Physical and spacing classes support in Constraint Manager
View physical Net names on canvas for plotting.

Documentation

Cadence Help Online Documentation System replaces CDSDoc, providing faster
invocation time, advanced search capabilities, and built-in viewing window

Note: The Cadence Allegro 16.0 upgrade is scheduled for release in June 2007
to all current Cadence Allegro customers with active maintenance contracts.
