    Hello.

    These days I'm forced to use Cadence Allegro at my Vocational School. I'm preparing my systems and received the software from my study center, but I have some donuts:

    • Anyone tried Cadence Allegro for both Windows and Linux? How's the experience?
      • I did read some parts not work. like certain simulation aspects. Is is true in 2016 or that got solved?
      • I see they used infamous MinWin to port it. They would have used Winelib instead, but okay.
    • How does the Windows version works under Linux?
      • I'm installing Linux now, but got distracted and collected some information in order to do things properly.
      • I really HATE Windows. I don't like how it works and how delicate is it.

    My systems:
    Core i7 laptop 8GB RAM and GTX860M (thanks, scholarship one year later).
    Oldie Opteron 2GB ram. Who cares, this thing can't with most of that software.
    Maybe in the future: A new desktop.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry, but that's the free viewer. It's not about the full software.

    I already looked at winedb, but the software and reviews are often not enough updated and not exhaustive testing is done most of the time :(

    Orcad 16.x under Wine 1.6


    I also found this Cadence' supported platforms matrix (pdf attached too) but there's no indication about the support degree on non-Windows platforms.

    It seems funny the most updated source about wine compatibility is in Chinese

    Thanks for looking at it, anyway.

    One thing to mention - Are you looking for PCB-Board schematic to layout flow only or you intend to do some Spice simulation (using Pspice) ?
    As far as I know, Pspice is not supported on Linux. So for simulation only windows option is there.
    Rest all works pretty well on Linux - 16.6 is fine.

    Do you mean even 16.6 and 17 "native" ports in their latest versions lack PSice? What shitty port have they done? WOW!!!

    I need everything. As a minimum, 100% PSice compatibility.

    Definitely Pspice is not available on Linux in latest version as well.
    I think then Windows is the only option.
