Test Points in OrCAD

Manually adding test points can be a lengthy process and can cause errors in your design. Fabrication and Assembly houses may have specific requirements for testpoint to testpoint spacing and testpoint to component spacing. Not meeting these specifications could result in a delay in production until issues are resolved. However, by automating this process, you can ensure no shorts or opens were created in the assembly and adhere to strict fabrication requirements. Automatic Test Point Creation within OrCAD can help. First define the constraints then, set the parameters and automatically generate the testpoints with the click of a button. Easily communicate your design by creating the test point fixture and exporting a drill file.
