Manually adding fillets and teardrops can add weeks to your design. And allowing a board house to add them after design completion, will leave you unaware of effects on your board. By automating this process and adhering to predefined constraint rules, you can save time and ensure your design intent is unchanged. OrCAD helps you do this with Dynamic Shape Fillets. Simply set the required parameters for the teardrops or fillets. Highlight the selection of pins or vias and OrCAD PCB Designer automatically creates the shapes.

A sound constraint management design process helps to foster a correct-by-design approach, reduces time-to-market, and ultimately optimizes the design process—eliminating the undefined, error-prone methods of the past. Here are five questions to ask yourself when assessing a constraint management system.

Getting the timing just right in your PCB design is critical to ensuring accurate results. Software like our TimingDesigner tool can report status of timing requirements in real time; helping to fix errors along the way. Many PCB designers find it is necessary to check static timing at certain strategic development points along the way, but it helps to first understand this purpose. Simply put, periodic timing analysis checks will aid in determining why your design fails to meet constraints by providing context of signal dependencies which can pinpoint troublesome timing relationships.
