We are not talking about how your design compares to the next guys’, we’re talking about the PCB layer structure of your design, be it rigid, flex, rigid-flex, or using inlay technology. Stackup definition, more specifically accurate stackup definition, is critical for a wide variety of reasons.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a buzz word hard to avoid in today’s technical society. Known as the biggest thing since the .com boom, the IoT increases connect-ability between the physical and digital worlds. IoT has often been referred to as the “infrastructure of the information society” and has led to intelligent connected platforms (IP) for innovative devices such as wearable, home automation, and medical monitoring products. Devices connected to the IoT can be sensed and controlled remotely across IPs improving efficiency, accuracy, and economic gain. As a result of the IoT an increased demand for connected devices drives new approaches to PCB design.

I can read your minds as you digest the features and benefits of our Allegro 17.2-2016 Release. “Oh no, what have they done now to disrupt my environment?” If you have been an Allegro user for many years, you know what I’m talking about. Dot Zero releases as we call them are our chance to make database / schema changes that result in some level of migration disruption. 17.2 effectively is your dot zero release as it combines the content from the Early Access Program 17.0 software with that of 17.2.

Why Rigid-Flex? For nearly all applications, customers continue to demand smaller, lighter, and more cost-effective products. Competitive pressures also force designers to bring these new products to market at an ever-increasing rate. Designers can deploy flexible PCB materials (flex/rigid-flex) to meet challenging form-factor requirements, eliminate connectors, and improve performance.

The OrCAD/Allegro 17.2-2016 release, the largest in the past 10 years, became available in late April 2016. Since 17.2-2016 includes a database change that usually happens with a dot zero release, many of you may be wondering when the right time to migrate to this new release is.
