OrCAD Capture CIS
An industry standard in schematic design entry:
OrCAD Capture provides fast and intuitive schematic design entry for PCB development or analog simulation using PSpice. The component information system (CIS) integrates with it to automatically synchronize and validate externally sourced part data.
Easy-to-use and powerful, Cadence® OrCAD® Capture is the most widely used schematic design solution, supporting both flat and hierarchal designs from the simplest to the most complex. Seamless bi-directional integration with OrCAD PCB Editor enables data synchronization and cross-probing/placing between the schematic and the board design. OrCAD Capture allows designers to backannotate layout changes, make gate/pin swaps, and change component names or values from board design to schematic using the feedback process. It also comes with a large library of schematic symbols and can export netlists in a wide variety of formats.
OrCAD PSpice® A/D is the de-facto industry- standard Spice-based simulator for system design. It simulates complex mixed-signal designs containing both analog and digital parts, and it supports a wide range of simulation models such as IGBTs, pulse width modulators, DACs, and ADCs. Its built-in mathematical functions and behavioral modeling techniques enable fast and accurate simulation of designs with efficient debugging. PSpice A/D also allows users to design and generate simulation models for transformers and DC inductors.
Scalability options include PSpice Advanced analysis capabilities and integration with MathWorks MATLAB Simulink for co-simulation. Advanced capabilities such as temperature and stress analysis, electro-mechanical simulation, worst-case analysis, Monte Carlo analysis, and curve-fit optimizers help engineers design high- performance circuits that are reliable and withstand parameter variation.
OrCAD PCB Designing:
OrCAD® PCB Designer contains a fully integrated design flow that includes a constraint manager, design capture technology component tools, a PCb editor an auto/interactive router, and interfaces for manufacturing and mechanical CAD. At the heart of OrCAD PCB Designer is OrCAD PCB Editor, an interactive environment for creating and editing simple to complex multi-layer PCBs. The extensive feature set addresses a wide range of design and manufacture ability challenges.
OrCAD PCB Designer and OrCAD PCB Designer with PSpice both include Cadence SPECCTRA® for OrCAD, the market-leading PCB solution for automatic and interactive interconnect routing. Designed to handle routing challenges requiring complex design rules, it uses powerful shape- based algorithms for speed and efficient use of the routing area. Optional PSpice® circuit analysis and simulation capabilities integrated with the included OrCAD Capture facilitates rapid design- and-simulate cycles, allowing engineers to explore various design configurations before committing to a specific circuit implementation.
OrCAD Signal Integrity:
OrCAD® Signal Explorer enables signal exploration analysis, and validation that helps engineers address signal
integrity issues throughout the design process-from the beginning of the design cycle through placement and final routing. In the pre-routing stages, OrCAD Signal Explorer allows engineers to prototype and access topology interconnect alternatives quickly to improve circuit reliability and performance. In the final stages, it provides design verification directly from the PCB Editor database. Seamless integration with Cadence OrCAD PCB Editor eliminates database conversion and possible translation issues.
