Prob. in Interfacing PCAD with SPECCTRA Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply


Me Student of Elect. Engineering. I am doing my Final Year Project. I faced a Problem while Designing PCB in PCAD and Routing the Design in SPECCTRA.

I have installed PCAD 2002 (Trial version-Free for 30 days) and I have SPECCTRA 7.1 Version.I have installed PCAD on D and SPECCTRA On C Drive.These Both programmes are working alone when run independently but Could not succed in Routing a Design through SPECCTRA which is made in PCAD.

In the PCB Editor , When I start AutoRouter (SPECCTRA) then SPECCTRA window opens but At Once the following Error Message is Displayed on the
Main SPECCTRA Output Display Window :-

<> Error in file .\Demo1_u.DSN , line 1 :token 4 = File\P-CAD
((content): (PCB D:\Program Files\P-CAD 2002 Trial\Demo\Demo1_u.pcb

Also A Box indicating Error

Parser : Expected (or) , saw File\P-CAD while parsing PCB

This Error is displayed in the Output Window as well as Separate Box. And then SPECCTRA Does not proceed Further.

Will you please guide me so that I can resolve problem.

Thanks in Advance.

with regards,
