5.6.2. Generating a Part

After you create a new project or open an existing project in the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software, you can generate a new schematic symbol based on your Intel® Quartus® Prime FPGA design. You can also update an existing symbol. The Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software stores component symbols in OrCAD Library File ( .olb ). When you place a symbol in a library attached to a project, it is immediately available for instantiation in the project schematic.

You can add symbols to an existing library or you can create a new library specifically for the symbols generated from your FPGA designs. To create a new library, follow these steps:

  1. On the File menu, point to New and click Library in the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software to create a default library named library1.olb. This library appears in the Library folder in the Project Manager window of the Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS software.
  2. To specify a desired name and location for the library, right-click the new library and select Save As. Saving the new library creates the library file.
