Instant Design Feedback While You Work
Your CAD tool should provide you with feedback when you need it, as you design, so you can make intelligent design decisions up front. Get out of the Design – Check – Fix – Repeat cycle with the real-time design features only available in Cadence. With real-time design feedback, identify issues as they happen so you can address them when they are easiest to solve.
Architected to Scale With You
The pace of change in electronics can be intense. You need a solution designed to keep up and grow with your needs. Stay ahead of the competition, technology changes, and innovate faster with the industry’s only fully-scalable design platform.
Get Your Design Right the First Time
Getting boards back from manufacturing can be a nerve-racking experience, but it does not have to be. With the advanced DFM rule checking, real-time feedback, and analysis capabilities in OrCAD you can be confident your design will be up and running the first time.
Complete PCB Design Innovation Platform

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.
