As you may have seen in our previous post, in celebration of the new OrCAD Capture design compare feature (made available in the 17.2 release) we launched a “Spot the Difference” Contest where one lucky winner receives a Raspberry Pi 3 Board and a 16GB, 10class with NOOBs. In order to enter this contest, entrants were asked to identify 10 differences between two schematics made available through a downloadable PDF and email us their results. In addition, they were also able to earn additional entries by either following us on Twitter or Tweeting about the giveaway.

Have you ever wanted to simulate a design with existing hardware? Sure you can create a stimulus of what you expect from the hardware then simulate in PSpice, but sometimes there’s no substitute to the real thing. Ideally what engineers want is a blend of virtual and physical prototyping—something possible in PSpice. Since many IoT innovators use inexpensive development boards to develop their idea, I thought it would be instructive to show how one can develop new hardware in OrCAD and PSpice, then integrate the simulation with real sensors driven by an Arduino board.

The Intel Edison Development Platform and the Intel Galileo Board are some of Intel’s newest open source hardware projects. The Edison Development Platform is designed to help entry level inventors and entrepreneurs mass produce wearable computing merchandise. The Galileo board is a bit more advanced then the Edison and is used primarily for commercial products.
