Session Descriptions

#1 Component and Design Management
Learn how to easily leverage and incorporate supplier component data
into your library. See how to easily version control your designs and
manage ECO’s. Customize your BOM’s and generate release documentation
with the push of a button.

#2 FPGA Design & Instant Prototyping
Learn how to design complex FPGA's with an embedded processor utlizing
block based IP and quickly debug your design in a NanoBoard with
virtual instrumentation.

#3 ECAD/MCAD with 3D PCB Layout
Learn how a 3D PCB layout environment can utilize STEP models to
create a 3D view of the board that can be merged with mechanical
design. Easily verify electrical/ mechanical fit clearances.

FPGA design using a PCB layout tool is a recipe for disaster.

FPGA design using a PCB layout tool is a recipe for disaster.

Indeed, I think they're wasting their time down this path.

What is good is the ability to pin/netlist swap when routing and pass
that back to the FPGA constraints. They should concentrate on this and making it
as flexible as possible but forget the FPGA development side of things.

Altium Designer is NOT a PCB layotool.

Oh, then how is it possible that I'm doing a board-level schematic in
it right now, which will then be handed off to my layout guy so he can
do that task, also in AD?

Antti should have typed: Altium Designer is NOT *JUST* a PCB layotool.

Is the tool FPGA pin type aware? I have found some layout people
don't like to swap pins on FPGAs because it can be very complex due to
the many constraints on pin capability. If the tool is aware of these
limitations, it could help with intelligent swapping.
