Whether you are new user or current customer our new video series, Working with OrCAD, will show help walk you through the basics of designing a board within OrCAD from start to finish. We will cover libraries, placement, post processing, etc. as well as a segment on how our constraint manager can assist you in your design process.

Your electronic systems are becoming more complex—for too long, you've gone back and forth between electrical and mechanical simulation. The integration of Cadence® PSpice® with MathWorks MATLAB and Simulink provides a complete system-level simulation solution for PCB design and implementation. Now you can simulate your entire electromechanical system as one system, in one integrated environment.

PCB Clustering for OrCAD provides the tools necessary for you to place components quicker, inevitably speeding up the design process by automating tasks that have traditionally been done manually. In a previous post PCB Clustering for OrCAD: AutoClustering™ we discussed the benefits of grouping components to provide initial placement of component groups into functional blocks – but this is only one of many capabilities PCB Clustering for OrCAD offers.

Freeware is great and can be a wonderful way to help expand the use of simulation and provide a great learning ground for users. However, when you are using simulation results to verify design performance, reliability, and quality for commercial products, certain items are important to consider before relying on freeware.

Moving a design from concept to a completed board is an involved process—especially when the design is outsourced—there are many opportunities for problems to arise. In order to mitigate potential issues, effective communication with your design partner is essential. This is where having a PCB design tool in-house, like OrCAD PCB Editor, can help. Having an in-house design tool can help you gain control over your design process, shorten your design cycle, and reduce overall costs. Still not sure how? Below we listed eight reasons having a PCB design tool in-house is a smart idea.

Assuring power integrity of a PCB requires the contributions of multiple design team members. Traditionally, such an effort has involved a time-consuming process for a back-end-focused expert at the front end of a design. This paper examines a collaborative team-based approach that makes more efficient use of resources and provides more impact at critical points in the design process.
