I am starting on an embedded project with the beagleboard as a
I do not have Allego, I do have Altium Designer.
I can import Allegro ASCII files into Altium, but since I do not also
own Allegro the .brd files are not helpful.
I tried to download the file ctc057.zip from the files section of the
The file download terminates each time at about 25.6 KB (the file
section says it is 749KB?? ) I assume it is somehow corrupted as I
have been able to download several of the other files from the Groups'
Can somebody in the group who can export the Allegro (.brd) design to
a ASCII file (.alg file) please do so?
This was a Topic last Feb and if a good copy of the .alg file is
available somewhere it would be a great help or at least a confidence
builder from which point my design may depart.
The schematic files are already imported into Altium. That process
went smoothly at first blush anyway.
I do not know how many others have done their own board spin for one
reason or another. Maybe the exported ASCII design files could be
posted where I found the other reference materials. It might give more
people a kick-start.
