The old ways of managing PCB design data and communicating changes across the organization are no longer sufficient in today’s competitive electronics driven marketplace. Learn how bi-directional interfaces connecting the OrCAD design environment and your PLM system are essential for gaining a competitive edge in our upcoming webinar.

Our most recent webinar, Constraint-driven design with OrCAD Capture, provided attendees with an overview of Constraint Manager for OrCAD. It is a new option available directly within the OrCAD Capture interface and can help define and embed constraints at the beginning of the design process—ensuring they will be communicated clearly. In addition to the overview on constraint-driven design, Janine Flagg, one of our senior field applications engineers, provided an in-depth demo on the product and answered any questions attendees may have had.

The inclusion differential pairs within a design introduces a wide variety of concerns engineers need to be mindful of if they want them to be reliable. Differential pairs are prone to problems if routing requirements and other guidelines are not followed, therefore it is imperative they are done correctly and design rules are always defined and adhered to. To help you as you navigate these rules and help provide some clarity on the topic, we have created an infographic: The Anatomy of a Differential Pair.

In such an innovative and technology driven industry, why are you still defining and communicating constraints outside of your CAD environment? With Constraint Manager for OrCAD you can define and embed constraints initially and know that they will be communicated clearly throughout the design cycle.

We are continuously adding new functionalities to the OrCAD Interactive 3D Canvas. Now you can even visualize bending of a multi-zone rigid-flex design. You can view its folded state, conduct collision checks when the design is bent, and measure a selected path in 3D mode.

Rochester, NY (September 12, 2017) – EMA Design Automation® today announced the release of EMA Constraint Manager for OrCAD to ensure design intent is communicated and adhered to during PCB implementation. “Today’s electronics pack an enormous amount of technology and features into smaller packages,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “At every step of the design process, design issues are compounded because of the interrelated constraints and poor communication of constraints between different functional groups. Constraint Manager for OrCAD allows OrCAD® Capture to be an integral part of the Cadence® Allegro® constraint driven flow paradigm, providing a structured way to manage constraints across all tools in the Cadence PCB design flow. This reduces design iterations, improving design quality and time-to-market.”
