Discovering issues with part status and availability late in the design process can be detrimental to your project, causing production delays and costly respins due to bill of materials (BOM) rejection. With SiliconExpert CONNECT BOM Risk, you can detect BOM issues early in your design and reduce time-to-market delays. Now, you can have access to industry-leading data used for cross-references, BOM checking, obsolescence forecasting, inventory tracking, and more directly within your OrCAD environment.

PCB Part placement is a very important part of the design process as it will drive the success of the entire project. Part Placement effects everything from manufacturing to electrical performance. This episode of Whiteboard Wednesdays will go over how placement can be achieved with a few simple steps as well as how should part placement be decided and what factors need to be considered.

Reduce errors and save time with approved parts in OrCAD Engineering Data Management. Import schematic symbols, PCB footprints and pad stacks. Once components are approved, parts are promoted and shared with multiple users in a centralized library--which can be associated with one or multiple projects.
