Greetings, welcome to the Parallella forum.

The .brd file is in Cadence Allegro format. The schematic .dsn file is OrCad. I will probably be converting the schematic to DxDesigner and the layout to PADs in the near future if that would be any help to you. Otherwise, if you are only looking for a way to design a board to connect to the Parallella I will be posting a KiCad template very soon (there is also one mentioned here: http://forums.parallella.org/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1204&p=7489&hilit=kicad#p7489)

The gerbers are all in the repository too, let me know what you want to do and I may be able to help.
