AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ Hardware Downloads

In AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ Hardware Downloads Wiki (, the community provides Allegro Design PCB board files (*.brd) (in attachment)


I would like to open these files with Altium, but I do not have a licensed installation of Cadence Allegro designer. Can anyone please convert the provided Allegro binary (*.brd) files to Altium Designer compatible ASCII (*.alg) files?


If you have both installations, the procedure is easy. The Import Wizard can directly import and translate Allegro PCB files (*.brd) to Altium Designer PCB files (*.PcbDoc) when the Wizard has local access to an Allegro PCB editor installation – that is, when a licensed copy of Allegro PCB is installed on the same machine as Altium Designer.
