Polygon Reversal & Clipping

Shows how to take a selection of polygons, reverse the polarity and clip to the package extents. This is often a required function since the leadframe designer draws the reversal of the metal. (02:25 mm:ss)


Shape Builder

Shows how to mark polygons in AutoCAD as shapes so that they can be imported into Allegro/APD/SIP. In addition to assigning a polygons a shape property you also deterimne what class it will go to in APD and can also attach a net name if so desired. (01:28 mm:ss)

Pin Builder

Shows the module that quickly builds a pin at the end of each leadframe conductor. You need such a pin in order to build the symbol for the package. While one could draw this manually, it is much faster to have the program generate them for you. (01:55 mm:ss)

Creating a Die Symbol

Demonstrates how to create a die symbol by selecting the die outline, selecting the die pads, defining the class for the die pads, numbering the pads and saving the results. You'll need to create a symbol for each die in your package design. You'll also create the package symbol in the same fashion.

What's nice is that you don't have to do a whole design in LayoutGen. If you just want to pass some package or die symbols to APD/SIP you can do that. (03:15 mm:ss)

Importing into APD/SIP

Demonstrates how to take the output of LayoutGen (a ULF file) and import your design into ADP/SIP. (01:53 mm:ss)
