Placing components has traditionally been a tedious, manual process no one in today’s day in age—with all the technological advancements out there—wants to deal with. As timelines shorten and an emphasis on efficiency increases, manually placing individual components can suck up hours of time you don’t really have to waste. The recent release of PCB Clustering for OrCAD provides AutoClustering™ technology, intelligent design (IP) reuse, and replication technology to help increase your productivity and shorten design cycle timelines.

Often times engineers don’t consider RoHS and Reach Compliance a criterion upfront when choosing parts for their design. Sometimes, the thought occurs AFTER they’ve sent a product to the manufacturer, only to be turned away. Engineers should think of RoHS early on in their design, but what if they can’t find the information they need to make an informed decision during the selection process of a part?
