Prevent time-to-market delays by identifying manufacturing issues before they become a costly mistake. It’s not uncommon for designs to be submitted to manufacturing only to have problems identified that require design reworking and re-submission. This results in lost production time, schedule delays, and recurring tooling costs. What if you could identify DFM problems as you design and fix them when they happen? This webinar will help show you how to spot and fix troublesome DFM issues in-design before they ever become a problem.

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.

With everything from your cell phone to your teddy bear converting over to wireless, RF interference is a growing concern. Even if you aren’t transmitting, you may have RF sensitive circuits you need to protect—almost every wire becomes an antenna or receiver and the signals they can receive or transmit can degrade overall performance. This is true for all products, no matter how small or minor they might be.

This week’s Working with OrCAD video, DRC, will discuss how OrCAD can help easily resolve DRCs in your design. The video will cover how view DRC counts, review, waive, or fix them and reports you can execute which provide a secondary set of checks.

This week’s Working with OrCAD video, Copper, discusses and the many features Cadence provides designers when dealing with copper shapes in addition to a few design best practices. It covers how to add various types of solid copper elements, sectioning plane layers, etc. It also reviews the different ways copper can be added to a layer (dynamic, solid copper, or crosshatch) and the merging of copper shapes.
