OrCAD PCB Designer Suite

Comprehensive PCB solution with advanced place and route technology

Based on production-proven Allegro PCB technology, OrCAD PCB Editor offers a wide array of powerful features to speed designs from placement and routing through to manufacturing.

OrCAD™ PCB Designer is a tiered, scalable PCB design solution that delivers advanced capabilities and highly integrated flows. The powerful, tightly integrated PCB design technologies include schematic capture, librarian tools, PCB editing and routing (PCB Editor), Constraint Manager, signal integrity (included in Professional), autorouting (included in Professional), and optional mixed-signal circuit simulation. The PCB Design Suites contain proven OrCAD and Cadence® Allegro® technology for a consistent design process. These tools have been some of the most popular in the industry because they deliver predicable results. OrCAD Design Suites provide the best combination of performance and features for the price.

PCB Placement & Interactive Etch Editing

Cadence OrCAD PCB Editor is an easy-to-use PCB layout editing tool for creating and editing simple to complex PCBs.
Based on production-proven Allegro® PCB technology, OrCAD PCB Editor's extensive feature set addresses a wide range of today's design and manufacturability challenges. OrCAD PCB Editor provides a powerful and flexible set of floorplanning tools and shape-based shove/hug interactive etch creation and editing. Interactive, shape-based, any-angle, push/shove routing allows users to quickly solve interconnect challenges. Dynamic shape capability offers real-time copper pour plowing/healing functionality during placement and routing iterations. PCB layout editing tool for creating and editing simple to complex PCBs.

Dynamic Shape Technology

Dynamic shape technology offers real-time copper pour plowing/healing functionality. Shape parameters can be applied at three different levels. Parameters are structured into global, shape instance, and object-level hierarchies. Traces, vias, and components added to a dynamic shape will automatically plow and void through the shape. When items are removed, the shape will automatically fill back in. Dynamic shapes do not require batch autovoiding or other post-processing steps after edits are made.

Constraint and Rules-driven Methodology

Floorplanning and Placement use a constraint and rules-driven methodology that drives a powerful and flexible set of placement capabilities.
A constraint management system displays physical and spacing rules.Each worksheet provides a spreadsheet interface that enables the user to define, manage, and validate the different rules in a hierarchical fashion. This powerful application allows designers to graphically create, edit, and review constraint sets as graphical topologies that act as electronic blueprints of an ideal implementation strategy. Once the constraints are present in the database, they are used to drive the placement and routing processes for constrained signals. The constraint management system is completely integrated with the PCB editor.
