After developing the design specifications from the customer’s requirements, creating a schematic can seem daunting. So where should you begin? This episode of Wednesday will discuss how to create the most effective schematic design and review ways in which you can ensure your design intent is communicated effectively.
It is always a good idea to run a Design Rule Check (DRC) before generating a netlist. The schematic DRC will check your design for design rule violations and place error markers on your schematic design. Select the rules you would like to check and generate a DRC report.
Performing an annotation chronologically renumbers the part references in your schematic design from top to bottom to ensure each component is uniquely defined. You can choose to annotate your entire design automatically or only partially annotate the components in your design.
Set up your library by adding parts from an existing Capture default library or create a new part from scratch.; You can also subscribe to Ultra Librarian to download from millions of pre-built components.
In such an innovative and technology driven industry, why are you still defining and communicating constraints outside of your CAD environment? With Constraint Manager for OrCAD you can define and embed constraints initially and know that they will be communicated clearly throughout the design cycle.
Printed circuit boards are driving the electronics industry forward. As a PCB designer, it is essential to assess your needs, both current and future, when choosing a PCB design system that is right for you.
