ZC702: how to open schematic design files

Hello,

 

which design tool did they use for the zc702 board? I can open the board file with Allegro PCB Editor but dont know how to open the schematik. Im usually using Allegro Capture which is not working here.

 

Thx.

Looks like Mentor Graphics PADS, but I don't personally use it so I can't confirm this.

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

The schematic tool is DxDesigner.

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

PADS is not the schematic entry tool that was used. DxDesigner is the schematic entry tool. I would suggest that you contact Mentor Graphics for additional support of their tools.

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

I'm sorry but DxDesign is included in PADs. I have DxDesign but if I open schematics with this versione I have the error that I already mentioned above.

Why Xilinx does not update their software ?

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

Hi,

 

I was able to open the schematic with PADs 9.4.1.

 

This is a complete project : ZC702 DxDesign

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

Hi,

 

I manually removed the connector from the file ZC702.21. Imported the project successfully. Reinserted the connector on page 21 of the draft (CAN Bus).

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

Hi xiaoweihuacom,

 

this is a steps that I have used :

 

(1) Download and decompress "zc702_Schematic_Source_rdf0174_rev1_0.zip"

(2) Enter in directory ".\zc702_Schematic_Source_rdf0174_rev1_0\wir\"

(3) Open with text editor the file "zc702.21"

(4) Search "hdr_2x5_alt", you found first occurrence on line 120

(5) Select and delete all line from 120 to 149

(6) Save file

(7) Open normally with your version of DxDesgin and wait conversion

(8) Once the conversion end, open "zc702.21" on Board Sheet tree

(9) Add new part "hdr_2x5_alt" and place on schematics as "ZC702 EVALUATION PLATFORM HW-Z7-ZC702.pdf"

 

Nothing more ...

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

hello,I meet the same problems too.It takes me a lot of time to open the schematic files.

I had tried mentor graphics EE2004,mentor graphics expediton EEP2007.2, mentor graphics expediton EEP2007.9.4,but all failed .The softwares all contain DxDesigner , but their filename extension that creat by DxDesigner are 'XXXX.prj' rather than 'XXXX.dproj' .

So ,wich software should I use to open the files? Or which verson of the mentor graphics should I use?

 

 The  files I try to open is from the website: ZC702 Schematics Source Files (Rev 1.0)

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/zc702_14-3.htm

 

I suggest that Xlinx attatches the imformation about software  that used to creat the files about the documentations when Xilinx releases  source files .

Re: ZC702: how to open schematic design files

Would you have this in Orcad dsn format?

Actually, all I am looking for is the Zynq7020 484 device so that's an OLB library or even if you have in orcad, just a right click copy to new schematic with the ZYNC part on it.

This would save some part symbol development, maybe 3 days of creation and checking.

Thanks,

Patrick
