Frequently asked questions
What file formats do you support?
We currently support Cadence Allegro and Altium Designer schdoc, pcbdoc, and csv files. For other formats, reach out to our dev team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does AllSpice host my designs?
Yes. Although we understand some users already have hardware projects in other hosting services (such as Github/Bitbucket/Gitlab), in order to build an amazing user experience for hardware designs, it's necessary that we host and render files directly.
Can I host AllSpice on-premise?
Though most of our users are on the cloud, we do have a self-hosting option if that's a policy for your company. Given the added complexity in deployment and support requirements, we only offer this alternative for teams with a minimun of 10 users.
Do I need git revision control in order to use AllSpice?
In a nutshell, yes.
How does AllSpice connect to Github/Bitbucket/Gitlab?
We offer optional Github/Bitbucket/Gitlab authenticators for signing in to AllSpice. This makes it easier to login without having to create and manage a new account if you already use one of those git services.
Do people need an ECAD license to look at my designs on AllSpice?
How much does AllSpice Hub cost?
Our Hub beta has a nominal flat fee with unlimited use for early partners until the public launch in the summer of 2021. At that point, teams will have the option to convert to a paid license or terminate their accounts. Beta partners that stay on will receive a significant discount to their subscription fee. For price ranges, email us at email@example.com or send us a note on the contact us page.
Will the diff tool continue to be free?
Yes, the diff tool is our gift to the HW community we so much appreciate. We're engineers as well, and we want to make the hardware development process better for as many people as we can.
