4.6. FPGA-to-Board Integration with Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS Software

The Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software is a schematic capture tool (part of the Cadence 200 series design flow based on OrCAD Capture CIS). Use the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software to create flat circuit schematics for all types of PCB design. You can also create hierarchical schematics to facilitate design reuse and team-based design using the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software. With the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software, the design flow from FPGA-to-board is unidirectional using only the .pin generated by the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. You can only make signal and pin assignment changes in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. These changes reflect as updated symbols in a Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS schematic project.

Note: Routing or pin assignment changes made in a board layout tool or a Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS symbol cannot be back-annotated to the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
