4.5. FPGA-to-Board Integration with the Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL Software

The Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL software is a schematic capture tool and is part of the Cadence 600 series design flow. Use the Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL software to create flat circuit schematics for all types of PCB design. The Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL software can also create hierarchical schematics to facilitate design reuse and team-based design. With the Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL software, the design flow from FPGA-to-board is one-way, 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 and these changes reflect as updated symbols in a Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL project.

For more information about the design flow with the Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL software, refer to .

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