To create a successful PCB design, you need to run a series of final checks before you can submit the board for manufacturing. Experienced designers already know what errors the analysis tools will identify before running these checks. The OrCAD Real-Time PCB Design Bundle makes it possible for everyone to design high-speed boards by alerting designers to potential errors during the design process. This real-time feedback improves the manufacturability of board designs and allows even inexperienced designers to create the next generation of high-performance, high-density electronics. Use real-time design insights in OrCAD to go from prototype to production in less time, with fewer respins.

The Real-Time PCB Design bundle includes:

OrCAD PCB Designer Professional
Gain professional grade PCB design capabilities with OrCAD® PCB Designer Pro. In addition to all functions which are already included in the standard version, OrCAD Pro supports the definition of differential signals, interactive routing, constraint management, and Real-Time PCB Design.

  • Advanced interactive PCB editing
  • Automated rigid flex design
  • Design reuse and replication
  • Advanced diff pair routing
  • Constraint manager: advanced physical, spacing, and electrical rules
  • X-net support
  • Post layout SI analysis
  • Autorouting with SPECCTRA®


  • Provides centralized, shared access to your component library across the organization to avoid redundancy and ensure available and approved parts are being used.
  • Enables designers to work with placeholder parts that can be replaced with approved versions once ready.
  • Easily manage board assembly variations without having to maintain duplicate schematics or manually edit individual BOMs.
  • Search for best fit components based on your unique criteria including, value, tolerance, cost, and status.

Realize the full potential of an effective component management process with the OrCAD Component Information Portal (CIP). It is now a quick and easy process to add and maintain components and parametric data within OrCAD CIS. Streamline component research, introduce new parts, and maintain data integrity with user access roles all within the CIS database management and the online component research environment.

  • Intuitive interface provides real-time access to add, maintain, and search component parametric data on millions of available parts directly within OrCAD.
  • Get started quickly with a starter database which includes a pre-configured schema and a 5,000 part starter library.
  • Define access rights and enable collaboration with stakeholders without exposing your sensitive IP.
  • Ensure critical component data such as  Part Number, Value, Price, Qty on hand, RoHS status, and more are included in your BOMs every time.

Ultra Librarian
Ultra Librarian for OrCAD provides a comprehensive, cloud-based library of millions of components eliminating the need manually create component symbols, footprints, and models. Ultra Librarian for OrCAD offers the ability to search, preview and place components quickly without leaving the native CAD design environment saving time and eliminating errors.

Licensing Methods & Terms

Methods | Terms

OrCAD uses a floating license model which allows purchased licenses to be shared amongst users (one active user per license available). This gives users the flexibility to best leverage their software and ensure consistent usage among potential users. The OrCAD license can be managed and purchased in a couple different ways depending on preference and needs of the user. Teams can mix and match these methods and terms to best suit their needs.

Licensing Methods


With this method a license is tied to the HOST (aka physical address) of a specific machine. This can be tied to a server or client machine depending on usage needs.

  1. Server: The license is hosted on a server using the servers physical address (HOST ID). User client machines can then connect to the server to access and check-out the license when in use. This allows licensing and access to be centrally managed. Users do need to be able to connect to the server to successfully check out a license with this method.

    Ideal for: Mid to Large user teams that need to be able to easily share licenses and will primarily use license in location with access to a centralized license server.

  2. Computer Host ID: The license is tied to the physical address of the users computer (HOST ID or NIC card). The user can then access the license on their machine. No connectivity to an external server is required. This may limit the ability to share the license though as the users machine would need to be on the network and active to be shared.

    Ideal for: Single / primary users who do not need usually need to share the license and want the flexibility and portability to access the software wherever they are.

Note: Standard license sharing is limited to a 1 mile radius from where the license is located (intended to cover a single site or campus). Broader sharing options are available (Nationwide and global). Contact us for details

License Terms

OrCAD is offered in a perpetual or time-based licensing model. This provides users flexibility in how they plan to use and account for the software over time. Both license models include support and updates with initial purchase.

  1. Perpetual License: A perpetual license grants the license holder 99year access to the software (referred to as perpetual access). This license includes access to updates and support for 1year from the initial purchase. The user can then opt to renew their maintenance contract to continue receiving new updates and support going forward. If the user opts not renew maintenance the software will still function, it will just be locked at the last version they user was eligible for and they will not have direct access to technical support.

Ideal for: Users who plan to use the software for multiple projects.


  1. Time-based License: A time-based license grants the license holder access to the software for a specific period (1 year for time-based licenses placed through the store*). This license includes access to updates and support for the duration of the term. When the term expires the license and software is no longer available for use and another term must be purchased to continue access.

Ideal for: Users who plan to use the program for a specific project, need to bill the cost of the software to specific program or project, or have temporary capacity license needs.
