OrCAD PCB Flow Tutorial
Describes the design cycle for an electronic design, starting with capturing the electronic circuit in OrCAD Capture, simulating the design with PSpice, through the PCB layout stages in OrCAD Layout / OrCAD PCB Editor, and SPECCTRA, and finishing with the processing of the manufacturing output and maintaining the design through ECO cycles.
To enable users to evaluate the power of the OrCAD PCB tools used in the Windows-based PCB design process. You can use this tutorial to perform all the steps in the PCB design process. The tutorial focuses on the sequence of steps to be performed in the PCB design cycle for an electronic design, starting with capturing the electronic circuit, simulating the design with PSpice, through the PCB layout stages, and finishing with the processing of the manufacturing output and maintaining the design through ECO cycles. Tasks covered in this tutorial may not cover all the features of a tool. In this tutorial, the emphasis is on the steps that you will need to perform in each OrCAD tool so that your design works smoothly through the flow.
The tutorial design example used in this tutorial works within the limits of the Lite version of tools available in the Cadence installation CD.
