OrCAD Component Information Portal

Part Selection and Management is simple with direct access to a centralized parts library

Centralized Component Data Management

Accelerate your design process with centralized, shared access to your component library across the organization. The intuitive interface provides a streamlined workflow ensuring only available and approved parts are being used throughout your entire team.


Streamlined Part Management

Utilize the advantages of a shared parts library which allows your team to easily access, search, and update part data without any of the administrative headaches. Streamline component research, introduce new parts, and maintain data integrity with user access roles.


Accurate, Up-to-date Parametric Data

Prevent unnecessary re-designs and keep your design on track with real-time access to lead time, obsolescence, supply chain information, and distributor information directly in OrCAD. The intuitive interface makes it easy to add, maintain, and search component parametric data on millions of available parts so you can be confident you are selecting the right components.


Harness the Power of an Effective Component Management Process

Streamline component research, introduce new parts, and maintain data integrity directly within the OrCAD environment. Shorten your time-to-market and reduce risks with a supply-chain driven approach to part selection.

Starter Library and Schema

Starter Library and Schema

Get up and running quickly with a starter database which includes a pre-configured schema and an expansive part starter library of over 5,000 parts.

Manage User Roles

Manage User Roles

Fully-customizable permissions for managers, librarians, and designers to ensure part data remains accurate and verified. Enable collaboration with stakeholders without exposing your sensitive IP.

Compliance-Driven Design

Compliance-Driven Design

Make intelligent design decisions and prevent supply chain issues with access to vital component information during schematic design creation including lifecycle, environmental compliance, and inventory.

Error-Free BOMs

Error-Free BOMs

Ensure critical component data such as Part Number, Value, Price, Qty on hand, RoHS status, and more is included in your BOMs every time.

Dynamic Component Data

Intuitive Interface and Dynamic Data

View and manage your component data directly within OrCAD or through a web browser. Add, maintain, and search component parametric data on millions of available parts directly within OrCAD. Automatic population of component information upon part creation reduces discrepancies and errors.

Integrated New Part Introduction

Integrated New Part Introduction

Request a new part based on an existing database part or distributor information and continue to design with temporary parts until approval. Live parametric and distributor information is automatically populated in the part attributes, eliminating manual entry, saving time, and ensuring accuracy of component information. Easily associate simulation models, symbols, footprints, documents, and multiple manufacturers to components for a comprehensive database.


Achieve Complete Data Management

Get control of your design data once and for all with the comprehensive data management tools from OrCAD.  OrCAD Capture CIS integrates your part database, allowing you to easily search and place parts and manage design variants directly within OrCAD. OrCAD Engineering Data managment (EDM) allows you to manage all aspects of your design data and ensure seamless team collaboration with features such as revision control and library management.
