Hello, I have downloaded LTM4644 reference design from Analog
I have a license of Altium Designer, and Allegro viewer.
While I can open the .DSN file and view it from Allegro viewer (so it seems it has been designed with cadence), there is no way to read the .PCB.
Usually Allegro should have a .BRD extension.
I also tried importing it as a PADS file, no luck.
Do you know how to read this file? Thank you.

Gerber files tell "PADS 9.4.1 Build Number: 494907".
Ok thanks. Unfortunately, to import into Altium, it seems that the PCB must be converted into PADS ASCII format first, but I do not have PADS.
