OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 10. Prepare for Manufacturing
Set your design up for fabrication and assembly. Setup fab drawings, dimensioning, title block, drill tables, cross section, and more.
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 09. DRC checking and Manufacturing
Check the status of your board with DRC checking. Once completed, the DRC will then highlight design rule violations. When errors are corrected, prepare your files for manufacturing by placing...
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 08. Routing
Pre-route the board by creating fanout for all the power and ground traces, route differential pairs and the rest of the entire board, then finalize the design by running a post- routing inspection.
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 07. Create Copper Plane and Shapes
Create shapes and add copper pours to the plane layers, add dynamic healing for copper pouring and add void after creating copper plane.
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 06. Set Up Differential Pairs and Constraint Manager
Set up the differential pairs and assign electrical, physical and spacing constraints to get ready for routing.
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 05. Place Components
You can place your components manually or automatically in OrCAD. Seamless integration between OrCAD Capture and OrCAD PCB Editor allow you to cross place components and cross-probe between your...
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 04.Create and Place Mechanical Symbols
Mechanical symbols represent physical objects that you can place in your board design and are not part of the netlist. One of the important mechanical symbols is the mounting hole. Create and...
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 03. Set Up PCB Design and Draw a Board Outline
Set up design parameters and grid spacing to get ready for your PCB design, draw the board outline and add layers to your design.
OrCAD PCB Editor Tutorial: 02.Generate a PCB Editor Netlist in OrCAD Capture
Once the schematic design is complete, the next step is to create a PCB Editor netlist and generate a new PCB board file.
