Schematic Design with
OrCAD Capture Training Courses

OrCAD Capture Essentials


Learn all the necessary steps required to create a schematic using OrCAD Capture. New users will learn the essentials needed to generate a design, how to navigate the tool, run DRC checks, prep the design for netlisting, and generate BOMs.

Includes an OrCAD Certification Opportunity.

  • How to build new parts and symbols
  • Design-checking best practices
  • Techniques for assigning reference designators
  • Creating a BOM (Bill of Materials)
  • Adding part and net properties
  • Creating flat designs

There are no prerequisites for this course.
