5.6.1. Creating a Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS Project

The Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software has built-in support for creating schematic symbols using pin assignment information imported from the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.

To create a new project in the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software, follow these steps:

  1. On the File menu, point to New and click Project. The New Project wizard starts.

    When you create a new project, you can select the PC Board wizard, the Programmable Logic wizard, or a blank schematic.

  2. Select the PC Board wizard to create a project where you can select which part libraries to use, or select a blank schematic.

The Programmable Logic wizard only builds an FPGA logic design in the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software.

Your new project is in the specified location and consists of the following files:

  • OrCAD Capture Project File ( .opj )
  • Schematic Design File ( .dsn )
