This week’s Working with OrCAD video, Cross Section, will discuss how OrCAD can help you review design specs and determine physical requirements (i.e. controlled impedance high voltage nets, high amperage nets, etc.) to help you work more efficiently with your manufacturer to come up with a cost-efficient stack up or build.

This week’s Working with OrCAD video, Cross Section, will discuss how OrCAD can help you review design specs and determine physical requirements (i.e. controlled impedance, high voltage nets, high amperage nets, etc.) which can help you work more efficiently with your manufacturer to come up with a cost-efficient stack up or build. The video will also cover two different ways to enter the stack up information into your design either by manually entering the information into the setup cross-section dialog or via the IPC2581 standard— these methods help ensure your designs are accurate and can be repeatedly produced correctly.

“Throw it over the wall” has traditionally been the mindset when dealing with updates and changes between the ECAD and MCAD domains. As a result of this strategy, updates and synchronization points tend to be infrequent. When issues are found, design teams may need to walk back through a multitude of changes and design decisions to solve the problems identified. This approach is inherently inefficient and error-prone, leading to schedule delays and product development issues.

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.
