Meeting timing requirements is crucial in high-speed designs and is often accomplished by length matching and delay tuning for critical nets. To help accomplish this, OrCAD PCB Designer Professional provides a timing meter on the PCB Canvas during routing for visual feedback on adherence to defined timing rules.

To accelerate fabrication and decrease costs, PCBs are manufactured on panels; however, these panels have a direct effect on manufacturing costs. The more panels required to produce the desired quantity of PCBs, the higher the cost of manufacturing. To reduce the number of panels required, it is important to ensure space is used efficiently within the panel layout.

With designs increasing in complexity and speed, it is more important than ever to ensure your design functions properly. For some device signals, this means ensuring timing of your components. Typically, this involves performing a post-route Design Rule Check (DRC) and adjusting your design accordingly. Issues found in this post-route DRC can require a change in component placement, resulting in additional time and resources correcting the design. With Real-Time Placement Analysis in OrCAD PCB Designer, you can analyze your design, optimize placement and solve timing delay issues BEFORE routing. This tutorial will show you how to set-up and use Placement Vision in your design to ensure timing of your components.
