Question

I want to translate a pads ".asc" file to an Allegro .brd file. However, the PADS IN form, accessed from  the Import > Translators > Pads menu, requires I select an "Options File:" Where do I find that file?

 

Solution

Click the Ellipsis button (three dots) and browse to the directory C:/Cadence/SPB_17.2/tools/bin/pads_in.ini to select the file. The path is highlighted in the screen image that follows.
