Course Highlights

CES for Expedition® PCB will help you gain the ability to define and refine design constraints in a common environment that is accessible from many Mentor Graphics front-end and back-end design systems. Hands-on lab exercises will reinforce lecture and discussion topics under the guidance of our industry expert instructors. This course is offered both on Windows and Linux platforms. This course included a module on iCES.

You will learn how to

  • Define the main concepts and constraints hierarchy of CES
  • Enable CES as a constraint system in DxDesigner-Expedition
  • Find and filter data in the design database
  • Navigate and manipulate the constraints hierarchy
  • Use the spreadsheets, toolbars, preferences, and options efficiently
  • Reuse already defined constraints in other designs using Constraint Templates
  • Partition the design data using Net Classes, Constraint Classes, and Schemes
  • Set up mechanical constraints such as trace widths, via assignments, and clearances
  • Assign physical high-speed constraints including minimum and maximum delays, matched delays, delay formulas, custom and complex topologies, differential pairs, and parallelism rules to nets or group of nets
  • Auto-route the constrained nets and evaluate the routing results

Hands-on labs

  • Enabling CES and synchronizing databases in the following design flows
    • DxDesigner to Expedition Flow
  • User Interface
    • Customizing the Windows Display
    • Using the CES Browser and the Spreadsheets
    • Editing Data in Spreadsheets
    • Interfacing with the PCB Data
  • Setting Up Mechanical Constraints
    • Creating Schemes
    • Creating and Populating Net Classes
    • Setting up Trace and Via Properties
    • Setting up Clearance Rules
    • Setting up Z-Clearances
  • Setting up Physical High-Speed Constraints
    • Creating hierarchy of Constraint Classes
    • Assigning Standard, Custom, and Complex Topologies for a Net
    • Setting up Differential Pair Constraints
    • Setting up Maximum and Minimum delays, delay formulas, and Matched Length groups
    • Setting up Parallelism Rules
    • Auto route the nets constrained with both mechanical and high-speed requirements
  • Constraints Reuse
    • Importing Constraint Templates
    • Testing Constraint Templates
    • Assigning Constraint Templates

Key topics

  • CES Overview
  • CES in the flow
  • CES User Interface
  • Net Classes and Schemes
  • Setting up Mechanical Constraints
  • Constraint Classes
  • Net Properties and Differential Pairs
  • Delays and Parallelism
