See What They Say About OrCAD

Since OrCAD tools scale seamlessly to the Allegro platform, the organization adopted both OrCAD and Allegro PCB solutions; now, they can choose which tool to use based on the complexity of the design. The Raspberry Pi Foundation works closely with a Cadence channel partner in the U.K., Parallel Systems, who provided training as well as tutorial videos that helped accelerate ramp up.

 

Read about Raspberry Pi's success

Prior to purchasing OrCAD, Roost engineers used a freeware schematic capture program, but its Design Rule Check (DRC) capabilities were inadequate, it had a limited number of nets, and it did not translate a netlist that was acceptable for any of the more popular layout packages.
