This week’s Working with OrCAD video, Copper, discusses and the many features Cadence provides designers when dealing with copper shapes in addition to a few design best practices. It covers how to add various types of solid copper elements, sectioning plane layers, etc. It also reviews the different ways copper can be added to a layer (dynamic, solid copper, or crosshatch) and the merging of copper shapes.

This week’s Working with OrCAD video, Constraint Manager, discusses how the constraint manager constitutes the central focus point within OrCAD. This allows the designer to control the physicality of their design, making it the heart and soul of Cadence design products. In this video, you will learn how to leverage the constraint manager to create error-free designs, the four types of constraint sets, and net grouping within the system.

This week’s Working with OrCAD video, Cross Section, will discuss how OrCAD can help you review design specs and determine physical requirements (i.e. controlled impedance, high voltage nets, high amperage nets, etc.) which can help you work more efficiently with your manufacturer to come up with a cost-efficient stack up or build. The video will also cover two different ways to enter the stack up information into your design either by manually entering the information into the setup cross-section dialog or via the IPC2581 standard— these methods help ensure your designs are accurate and can be repeatedly produced correctly.
