Freedom CAD Boosts Efficiency by Partnering with dalToolsFebruary 11, 2016 | Freedom CAD
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Freedom CAD has adopted the use of dalTools’ dalPro software to complement their efficiency with Cadence Allegro. The dalPro software features over 90 commands that enhance the performance of Allegro and Freedom CAD’s team of over 30 designers are finding new ways to save its customers time and money every day. In addition to the dalPro software, dalTools also offers dalView, a world class Allegro viewer that is intuitive and uses fewer keystrokes than other viewers.
Freedom CAD’s electrical engineers are also using dalEE for Allegro® Design Entry HDL schematic capture. The dalEE software enables the electrical engineers to view the Allegro library, place parts from the schematic and address length matching requirements with the “dal delay” command as an alternative to using Constraint Manager. One of the many strengths of this tool is the easy to use GUI and the numerous pull down commands.
“Freedom CAD has been very impressed with dalTools continued commitment to add to the functionality to their suite of tools which continues to enhance the value of the tool. We are finding that some tasks that took the team hours to perform in Allegro can now be completed in minutes and this is helping us to provide more value to our customers,” said Scott Miller, Chief Operating Officer at Freedom CAD.

Panasonic’s Darren Hitchcock spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team on the complexities of moving toward ultra HDI manufacturing. As we learn in this conversation, the number of shifting constraints relative to traditional PCB fabrication is quite large and can sometimes conflict with each other.
In my last column, I discussed cutting-edge innovations in printed circuit board technology, focusing on innovative trends in ultra HDI, embedded passives and components, green PCBs, and advanced substrate materials. This month, I’m following up with the products these new PCB technologies are destined for. Why do we need all these new technologies?
