With orcad Allegro and a *.dra footprint file I am trying to build myself a document listing all images and footprint data. When I load a footprint .dra file into Allegro I can see the footprint image and obviously Allegro knows what are the dimensions of that footprint since it can build a (...)
orcad16.6 - In Capture using 3 MOSFET assigned footprint TO3 (standard in \pcb_lib\symbols\ TO3.dra). When jumping to Allegro PCB Editor trying to use the QuickPlace tool, all my schematic parts are placed on top corner except the 3 MOSFET TO3.
In the orcad CIS 16.6 database example one can find two DB fields called Allegro_PCB_footprint and Layout_PCB_footprint. Both fields are populated with different footprint names, and I assume, must refer to two different footprint files. Why two different fields ? Why orcad uses two (...)
Hi, In general you need to create all the PCB footprint you need. orcad/Cadence does not provides generic PCB footprint libraries. And yes, it is required to manually add the PCB footprint to any component in your symbol library. You may find symbols and/or footprint from some vendors (e.g Altera ). Franck.
I need AD620 orcad Library. Where I can found it...? Or how can I make it...?
I tried to post this message earlier, but it did not seem to go through, so I will try again. I am currently going through a tutorial for orcad Capture and it is asking that I use a SMDRES footprint for my resistors. I know that surface mount resistors come in various sizes such as 0603, 0805, and 1008. So my question is how would a person know wha

I am using orcad , (layout plus)
Is anyone who know which footprints i need to use for the following sensors : DS1307(sop),BMP085,masx3232. I have a lot of confusion about which footprint i need to use . I need help pls.
Hello, I am creating the footprint for the attached power jack. Apparently, I can't create a rectangle shape drill, in DRILL layer. orcad seems to allow only round shape for this layer. How am supposed to set this footprint, since its terminals are rectangular?? Do PCB houses usually charge any more for non round drills? Tks!
I am using orcad and am having a hard time finding useful tutorial on how to make footprints in orcad. I know theres a wizard in orcad to make parts, but sometimes theres odd parts that doesn't fit those templates and you have to create your own but I cannot find any resource about it. I think its just me but I am sooo (...)
hi sir/madam i wanna know how to use general edit and etch edit options in orcad pcb editor. if it used once how we have to deselect or remove from our design.
I m using orcad layout and when i want to modify a tansformer footprint ( or other footprint with more than 1 pins all named 1, 2,3 ,...) look what is hapening: let s say i want to delete the pin number 2 of the transformer wich has a total number of 6 pins. When I delete the no. 2 pin , all the others pins get renamed automatically by (...)
when u design a footprint it is stored as a library..have u included this library in your capture to enable it to show. attached doc will help you not just for footprint but overall in orcad.

Hi, is just that i have a .dsn and .brd files, i got the .dra and .psm files from the PCB, but i need to modify the property of the footprints in the capture file, because it has some source libraries that doesn't exist and i need to fix it to generate the netlist. So how could i make the right libraries to use them in the footprints of the captur
Hi, generate netlist like that tools-->create netlist-->others-->in that select orprotel2.dll from for-matters (before that you need fill the Protel PCB footprint ) - - - Updated - - - if you convert schematic from orcad to protel i have not any idea about netlist
PCB Wizard from pcblibraries. Thanks man...Can I use this footprint library in orcad? Or is it only available for PCB Wizard?? Anyways, I think I'am shifting over to Eagle, or is this software better? Please advise man!
This drawing was done in Cadsoft Eagle!!! This is a PICKIT2 Clone!!! Export gerber in Eagle and Import into orcad to get the footprint, or just create your own footprint!!!
hi, yeah better do it in PADS only,if you have that may be get error while translating orcad to pads
Hi... mate... can anyone know about how to create a new foot print in orcad... i searched lot but still i can't get this exact ans pls kindly acknowledgement me...

I make good use orcad capture and I'm trying to learn pcbeditor. But I have seen that it is not easy and I have some question: 1) there are package footprint already defined? where for example where is the footprint for the resistance with package 0603? 2) how to define a layer for VCC and one for GND? how to change the vias? I do not (...)
All are there need to look more carefully anyways have a look at this link it explains how to make footprints
I have a PCB *.BRD file. No schematic no netlist. On board 03 D2PAK footprint placed U28, U29, U30. I want to replace a only U29 footprint D2PAK with To263-3. Any body know the procedure to replace the footprint without schematic and netlist.
I think nothing of making my own symbol and footprint. I don't know the new orcad, I use 10.2. It is very easy to create symbol and foot print. In fact, I am learning Eagle right now, I am really getting into device creation before I even get onto the layout. To me, creating my own parts really make me learn the layers, padstacks and all. That' rea
footprint can be designed by yourself. First see the datasheet of the component, where the required dimension are given. use it and design. there is several tutorial on youtube and google. Try search this on youtube orcad Allegro How-To create complex footprints Tutorial orcad Cadence Allegro
Is there any easy way to assign footprints in orcad capture instead of entering each and every PCB footprints in Edit Properties.
Hello Edaboard members, I would like to know how the way by which we can add footprint details to the component in schematics. I have made a schematic of a simple circuit, but it gives me error when I select "create netlist". The errors indicate that the footprints have not been specified for the components being used in the schematic. So, k
Hi everybody, I am a Project with Schematic Entry in Cadence Allegro Design Entry HDL and a first generation of Layout designed with PCB Editor. I have to update the layout with components that have a new footprint. I have thought to make this board update with this simple flow: 1. Start Part Manager in the DE HDL; 2. Update the Istance of the
Dear all experts, I dont have any orcad layout software. all what i have is orcad capture and PCB editor and I need to design a BNC as PCB footprint files which should contains three files (".dra", ".log" and ".psm"). I attached a picture which descripe the layout of the required BNC. If you kindly design it for me and give it to me in (...) the property of part by double clicking on it.. 2. set filter by> oracd layout. 3. write footprint name in PCB_footprint box. 3.1 you have to write name according to either preloaded footprints or by user created footprints 3.2 library footprints are found in C:\Program (...)
I am presently working on a PCB design for a sensor and I have just started learning Capture CIS and PCB Editor. I completed the schematic in orcad Capture and cleared all my DRC errors. I have also succeeded in creating a netlist and thereby exporting it to PCB editor. At this stage, I have a query viz. even though I have filled in the PCB f
Hi everybody. I have a problem with my final project, I need an Altium DXP PCB library that contains MAX2606 footprint or Intlib. is there anyone that has this foot print library? If anyone has its footprint in other software such orcad, I can import it into Altium DXP and use it. this is the datasheet of MAX2606 [URL="
I created a footprint at orcad for transformer.(i use 4 transformers in my design). The problem is that when i choose the footprint in orcad layout i get the following error message (How to fix this error????) : ERROR: Electrical package TRANSFORMER for comp T2 has at least one pin (8) which (...)
Hello, I was wondering if there was a way to take my 20 components already created in capture (I didn't make them all at once) and fit them into a single layout footprint? I found many threads regarding this but they all started prior to someone making said symbols. I'd hate to have to remake all the symbols so any advi
I would like to ask what footprint i have to choose for a regulator (3 pins) at the orcad layout.I don't find which footprint is compatible to use.
hi i have problem while importing orcad capture to allegro spb 16.3 layout.after import and packaging symbols to foot print in allegro i can see the component in place mode but it is not going to place. so please tell me what is the right process to save pcb footprint in library of allegro 16.3 that after packaging i can place the component in lay
So I go to make the netlist and I get a repeating errors "#78 ERROR(ORCAP-36002): Property "PCB footprint" missing from instance R40: SCHEMATIC1, PAGE2 (5.80, 1.00)." This happens on resisters, diodes, relays, and capacitors. What is this error and how do I fix it? EDIT: i did fill in the PCB footprint box.
I did a pcb with orcad and i get the following message: In layout : The first time which i try to choose the footprint i did a mistake and after this, each time which i load the netlist.mnl i get the same message. (I tried to recreate a new netlist, i copy the shematic to another project .... but the error is not able to correct). Auto
