Key Benefits

OrCAD Familiarity Meets Allegro Power 

  • Unleash your capabilities with a layout environment featuring a contemporary, user-friendly interface, incorporating the formidable Allegro X constraint engine. 

Take Control of Your Environment 

  • Optimize your screen space and enhance visibility with floating panels, tailor your workspace with shortcut keys, and seamlessly navigate and visualize with cross-probing. 

Display Controls and Visualization 

  • Seize command of your display and enhance concentration with parametric graphical highlights, filters, and navigation. 

Integrated 3D Canvas with Flex and 3D DRC 

  • Utilize the interactive 3D canvas and 3D DRC featuring flex bending and enclosures to visualize your product during the design phase, allowing you to detect and resolve any issues, thus ensuring design integrity within space limitations. 

Design with Vision. Insight Where and When You Need It 

  • Utilizing integrated analysis and real-time visual guidance, you can refine component selection and values, and gain clearer insight into placement and routing, all while adhering to your specified constraints with Live DRC. 

In-design Analysis from Capture to Manufacture 

  • In-design Analysis delivers swift and precise results directly, eliminating the need for translation or data transfer between tools. By visually interpreting these analysis outcomes, you gain the insight required to comprehend the effects of your simulations, enabling informed decision-making across the design lifecycle. 

Reduce Costs and Increase Reliability with OrCAD PSpice 

  • Conduct Smoke Analysis to assess component reliability and tolerance testing. Employ Sensitivity Analysis to enhance production cost optimization through component tolerance assessments. 

Dynamic Updates for Your Final Documentation 

  • Guarantee precision and eliminate time-consuming revisions with LiveDOC. Template-based automated fabrication and assembly drawings stay aligned with the original design, seamlessly accommodating any necessary adjustments, all within a unified document. 

DesignTrue DFM 

  • With a comprehensive range of over 100 essential constraint checks, effortlessly pinpoint prevalent manufacturability errors to ensure designs are tailored for fabrication, assembly, and testing. Effectively convey design intentions to top manufacturers and obtain the necessary technology files. 

Generate Manufacturing Files from a Single Location 

  • Set up and produce necessary manufacturing output files from one centralized location, with the added capability to include your LiveDOC in the generated set. 

Centralize and Manage Your Data with Team Workspaces

  • Custom project workflows and templates enable expedited design cycles like never before. Effortlessly oversee and assess design modifications with a comprehensive version history.

Easily Build and Maintain a Robust Centralized Library

Leverage the Component Explorer to search, evaluate, procure, and publish components using current and precise data from integrated content providers, simplifying the process of creating and distributing your Library. Real-time updates guarantee that your components are equipped with the most recent information sourced directly.

Design for Reuse with Known Good Circuits

  • Speed up your design workflow by capitalizing on pre-existing and validated circuitry rather than consistently beginning anew. OrCAD Capture facilitates the reuse of subcircuits through hierarchical blocks, fostering the effective utilization of established designs. By crafting and overseeing reusable modules derived from finalized circuitry, you can streamline your PCB layout procedure and mitigate potential signal integrity or thermal concerns.

Concurrent 2-Person PCB Design with Symphony
