CIS Admin Tool for OrCAD CIS

 

If your OrCAD Capture CIS designers work in a multi-user networked environment, you can leverage CIS functionality for easier management of your group's part and footprint libraries and files you can browse. Placing libraries and files in a designated location forces all engineers to pull information from a central source. This not only promotes data integrity, since all users are getting part information from a common source, but also eases the burden of administrating libraries.

OrCAD - Viewlogic Translator

 

You can use the OrCAD ViewReader to convert Viewlogic ViewDraw designs in OrCAD Capture versions 7.2, 9.0, 9.1, 9.2, 9.2.1, 10.X, and 15.7.

 

If you are an OrCAD Capture 9.2 user, please remember to do the following:

  • Select the OrCAD Capture v9.10 option on the first installation dialog box. The ViewReader is the same for Release 9.1, 9.2, 9.2.1, 10.X and 15.7
  • Do not install the ViewReader in your OrCAD Capture directory. The ViewReader contains files that will overwrite files you need to use OrCAD Capture
