Design entry is powered by the world’s most used schematic capture solution, OrCAD Capture. Used on countless designs across all industries and levels of complexity, OrCAD Capture provides the perfect mix of ease of use and functionality to support your design requirements.
Easy & Intuitive
Correct By Construction
Route with Precision and Accuracy
Over half of design cycle time can be spent in placement and routing. Complete even your most complex design with accuracy and speed with the industry’s leading PCB implementation solution and see how PCB design is meant to be.
Powerful Route Engine
Instant Design Feedback
Integrated 3D Engine
Scalable & Extensible
Comprehensive Simulation and Analysis
Know your design is ready for production with our complete set of analysis and simulation options. Run thousands of design scenarios, identify, and fix issues before the first physical prototype is ever produced.
Optimize and Verify
SI, PI, Thermal, and SPICE
Go to Manufacture with Confidence
Sending your design to production can be a tense experience. Many have come to expect manufacturing changes and issues to happen, slowing the design cycle and often leading to long nights and weekends for the engineering team. It doesn’t have to be that way. Go to manufacturing with confidence knowing you have been checking for manufacturing issues along the way with our real-time DFM checking and rules support.
Instant DFx Feedback
Automated Manufacturing Outputs
Effortless MCAD Integration
Your Data Where You Need it, When You Need It
Keeping track of design revisions, managing part availability and compliance, and updating your PLM can seem like another job. OrCAD provides automated capabilities to handle these necessary tasks quickly and efficiently without having to leave your CAD environment.
Automated Revision Control
Seamless Team Design
Component Sourcing and Library Management
Your design is often part of a whole and as such, will need to be managed in a company PLM system or similar. Easily synchronize your design data with PLM and surface contextual data from PLM such as corporate-approved part numbers directly in your CAD tool and ensure a smooth transition to production.
Explore the full breadth of OrCAD technologies. Designed to scale with your needs, you can easily select the technologies required to solve your unique design challenges while maintaining a common, flexible design environment that can grow as you do.

OrCAD Documentation Editor
Quickly create the necessary manufacturing drawings to drive PCB Fabrication and Assembly with OrCAD Documentation Editor. With intelligent automation, complex PCB documentation is created accurately in a fraction of the time, ensuring manufacturing success.
OrCAD DFM Checker
Easily identify issues in your design created during the manufacturing process with OrCAD DFM Checker. Perform a comprehensive manufacturing analysis while you design and address potential issues before fabrication to avoid time-to-market delays and costly re-designs.
PCB Clustering for OrCAD
OrCAD Productivity Toolbox provides a comprehensive suite of utilities designed to increase efficiency throughout the PCB design. With the enhancement and optimization of existing PCB layout capabilities, you can save time on monotonous tasks and focus on design.
Detect and correct signal and power integrity issues throughout your PCB design with the integrated technology of Sigrity Aurora. Sigirty Aurora users can perform pre-layout analysis using “what-if” scenarios to develop accurate design constraints and confirm circuit functionality with in-design and post-layout analysis ultimately reducing design iterations.
Easily screen a PCB design for signal quality without having to be a signal integrity expert. With Sigrity go beyond the simple geometry-based DRC and evaluate the entire design for impedance discontinuities, excessive crosstalk, return path discontinuities and more.
Develop physically-realizable electronics ready for manufacturing and ensure success of your RF/Microwave designs with AWR. AWR allows you to model, simulate and verify all aspects of your design, including complex integrated circuits, packaging and PCB’s.
OrCAD Engineering Data Management
Control your design data without ever leaving the OrCAD environment with revision control for schematic, PCB, and components. With OrCAD Engineering Data Management you can communicate, track changes, and ensure accurate and efficient team collaboration.
OrCAD Component Information Portal
Part creation, verification and management is made easy with OrCAD CIP. Streamline your design process with a centralized part database to ensure the correct symbols and footprints are used by the entire team.
Seamless integration between your PCB Design environment and your PLM, MRP or ERP systems ensures design success by incorporating product lifecycles and inventory into your design decisions.
