Rigid-Flex your PCB Design

Reap the benefits of a rigid flex design implementation, while effectively managing its unique design and manufacturing challenges. Video

Upgraded 3D Engine

Prevent ECAD/MCAD integration errors before they happen. Analyze your design in ultra-realistic 3D renderings, run collision checks, and even cross probe between 2D and 3D views.


Design Compare Made Easy

The new graphical design compare function in OrCAD 17.2-2016 makes it easy to quickly identify what changed between design revisions.

Unmatched System Level Analysis and Insight

PSpice 17.2-2016 allows design teams to virtually prototype their entire product at ANY level of abstraction enabling, system level design and testing before you commit to hardware.

Route Faster with Less Errors

Access advanced place and route technology to ensure you are able to achieve design closure on-time and move to manufacturing with confidence.

64-Bit Architecture

Architected to take full advantage of available computing resources. OrCAD 17.2-2016 provides significant performance improvements for compute intensive tasks.

What Customers are Saying

"Cadence has built tools that are enabling us to develop better designs faster, while giving us a better understanding of expected performance. This advancement has saved us upwards of $4,000-$12,000 per new board design."


- David Edwards
  CEO at Abicom

"The latest release provides many productivity and ease of use enhancements. In-design inter-layer checks for flex and rigid-flex design is comprehensive and extensible, which can save us 20 to 25 percent time for rigid-flex designs."


Dave Elder

PCB Engineering Manager

Tait Communications

"The new inter-layer check capability provides comprehensive in-design, real-time checks, which will save us significant time currenlty spent doing manual checks after layout is completed on advanced flex and rigid-flex designs."
