I am new in orcad pcb editor(orcad.16).Please suggest me to delete deleting rats net/connection in orcad pcb editor without modifying in schematic.
I guess pcb editor is scale down Allegro.
pcb editor is Allegro's pcb tool - there are varying levels of capability 610 being the highest - the entire design package - Concept or orcad with pcb editor, among other tools is called Allegro. SiGiNT
Hi Folks, Does anyone have a simple and easy to read tutorial on orcad pcb editor ? Please upload or provide a link. Thanks! :D
Hello everyone! I am using Capture and pcb editor. The schematic capture part of things is a snap for me but the pcb editor seems a bit overwhelming to get started. The tutorials in the help section don't take me through the entire process of generating a board ready to be sent out to a board house. But instead every (...)
I am confused between the two. I am using orcad pcb editor and my layout house is using Allegro; sometimes I got error message of 'database revision 14.x is too old ... must run dbdoctor' by trying to use the layout house' library. Does anyone know what is going on? and how can I make this work. I also tried to convert the library (...)
I've taken on a project where I have to use Cadence Allegro for my designs. I've already created a schematic in Capture CIS, and am ready to start the pcb design process. Unfortunately, this is my first time using pcb editor (I've used orcad Layout up until now, but my experience with pcb software in (...)

Following are the files Can somebody tell me how to import them into orcad pcb editor
Hi all Hope to be fine I really need your help as soon as posible since I am really worried about what I am doing:cry: I am trying to design a board with FPGA cyclone III ep3c80 484 I need the footprints for this device and I found them in altera website: and w
Are there any good sources for libraries for orcad pcb editor 16.2?? I tried the Allegro Footprint Maker on here and is does not draw anything when I execute it. I get the following error: "Command not found: skill 'load "c:\\FPM\\" ' " Any help would be great.
Hi there, I'm not an pcb layout expert. This is my third time using orcad pcb editor 15.5. Previous occasions things were setup for me, such as the layers, sheet size, etc. With that said, I'm having problems generating Artwork for my 1 layer board. The top etch layer is not coming out properly for my dimensions (...)
I use Allegro/orcad pcb editor for pcb design. I have problems with irregularly shaped pins. “Shapes” not always can be used to define padstack for such pins. In such cases I have to add copper over the pins. Example: Vishay POWERPAK-1212-8 footprint requires exposed copper that overlaps partially two pins. (...)

Hallo Experts! I wanna ask you if somebody can help me with pcb editor at Cadence 16.3? Old versions of orcad till version 16.0 uses libraries *.llb for drawing pcb layouts. New version 16.3 has totaly new format for libraries (*.dra , *.psm , *.bsm and many others). My questin is: Exist some TOOL or cenverter from old (...)
Two questions (1 orcad, 1 pcb editor): 1. Is there a way to associate a nonelectrical component with an electrical component? Example: I want to use an Aavid Thermalloy 507002b00000 heatsink with a component in a TO-220 package. Obviously, the heatsink has no electrical properties, and wouldn't appear on the schematic. However, I (...)
I am using orcad pcb editor 16.3. My problem/question is partly software specific, and partly pcb layout in general. I am attempting to create the footprint for a connector that will be carrying significant current loads (i.e., I ~ 16.5A). The connector is through hole, and has an odd pin with two "feet" (i.e., two (...)
I am familiar with the Import DXF functionality of orcad pcb editor, and have successfully imported drawings for things like a company logo and an ESD symbol for the silk screen. However, now I would like to import a dxf onto the etch layer, make all of the resultant shapes dynamic, and assign them to nets. I have been able to import the (...)

Hi prince, Get "Complete pcb design using orcad Capture and pcb editor" By Kraig Mitzner. Anand
Hello, First you have to draw your board shape (board geometry/outline). If you don't have any error message during the netlist importation, you can go to place-->manually and then pick your components and place them on your pcb. There is also automatic method to place component (around the board for example). Regards, Franck.
Hi mate... I am using allegro 16.2 pcb editor, where i have placed all the components after importing the netlist created by the orcad capture.. I want to know that how to rotate the placed components horizontally as well vertically after placing inside the board geometry shape.. thank u so much.. Yrs... Prince Moses,
hi, I am made a simple schematic design with orcad 16.2. and i am created the netlist for orcad pcb editor, "netlisting the design" is ok, no error. but the error is in the "updating orcad pcb editor board ". what is the problem? in the session log there is no (...)
did you try to convert with translator first. When i want to use a footprint from Layout in pcb editor. I put the footprint in a dummy design, convert it with the orcad layout translator, than open the converted design in pcb editor to export footprints. So am able to use my old footprints.
Capture is inputting the schematic drawing. pcb entry is routing the pcb. Sounds like you want to add a new compomnents, this means you have to add a new component to a library. There are two library types schematic and pcb.
Hi... I have just entered into the world of pcb designing. Learnt how to make schematic in orcad capture and bring it to orcad pcb editor (Allegro). There are some components for which I have to create footprint. Can anybody help me out with the beginner's tutorial as how to start and make a footprint. (...)
I have two important answear: 1. orcad pcb editor or Cadence Allegro have a union functionality how Altium Altium Designer you can place and route a part of the circuit and than I can do a union of this section of the circuit and than move it in the board how a single component. 2. There is a tutorial for Cadence pcb (...)
Hi there! Is there any person around who could kindly point orcad Layout experienced freelancer to some online publishing or books about pcb editor? For some reasons I couldn't attend any of Cadence classroom trainings but badly need to quickly learn the product. Great thanks in advance! androm
I have orcad pcb editor 16.5. I make a new drawing with the type being package symbol, and set up the grid and work area. I go to place padstacks by selecting layout>pins. Then the "select a padstack" box should come up but it doesnt. What am i doing wrong?
Does the silkscreen ref des actually print on on the physical pcb silkscreen?
I want to connect two pins of footprint with Ratsnets connection in orcad pcb editor. I used orcad Layout to design pcb. But there is much difference between two. The function of the pin "Reconnect" in layout is to direct the connection line between two pins. We can then route that lines using routing (...)
Dear all , pls tell me , how to set Color view file in orcad pcb editor Permanantly. everytime i make new design i have to keep on setting colors . is there any way to freez color view files? i hav tried macro recording but did not worked. when i make new design i can get the layer view which i recorded in macro but cant get colors (...)
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
Im thinking of using orcad pcb editor for creating a motherboard design due to the enormous costs of Allegro. This would be an 8 layer board, about 10"x8", standard PC components, so LGA socket and BGA, but nothing super fine pitch. My plan for getting around the DDR relative prop requirements is to just leverage an already existing ref (...)
I've been looking for a way to simply just redo the last command I have executed in pcb editor but for the life of me I can't find any way to access the command history. Is there no such feature? Ideally, I would be able to use the arrow keys to traverse the command history. Thank you.
Hi, there, I was using orcad v10.5 Layout Plus previously, and recently I switched to orcad pcb editor. But I have a problem. In orcad v10.5 Layout Plus, I could connect a pad to the surrounding copper like copper pour type (please see Fig.1). What I need to do is just to change the padstack setting by (...)
Hi, In orcad 16.3, if we select one component in design entry CIS(circuit editor) is highlighted in pcb editor. This is not working for orcad16.5. Is any link to solve this issue?, pls help.
Hello Everyone, Does anyone know how to do a route and retain in orcad pcb editor? If so can you explain it to me, I am new to Board design so please be specific. I have a board outline and components on the board but I have two boards attached to each other and want to make on break away. (...)
Hello, orcad/Allegro consists of several programs needed to be opened. So open Capture(diagram) on one screen and pcb editor(layout) on another screen. To make them synchronize you can press the highlight symbol which is a sun-symbol. Then you select a component or a net and it will also be selected in Capture. The same should apply if you (...)
Hi, is just that i have no idea how to relate a line with a net in Allegro pcb editor, it keeps showing me that the lines ar not in a net, how could i solve this, i need help, thanks in advanced.
I would not say Camtastic is the tool for the job, it is a tool that is almost there but still has many issues of its own. If you can use another tool such as CAM350, Gerbtool or similar that can export a pcb file format that can be opened in DXP directly like pads, orcad or accel you would be better to do that. :R
Hi,to create netlist from orcad to Power pcb. In orcad choose tools menu-create netlist - others - choose padspcb.dll in formatters . Then import the netlist in Power pcb
how can i start pcb Design with protel..?
Hello everybody, what are the differencies beetween Capture and Capture CIS? Capture CIS has as the name say also CIS-component information system If you are in this component system you can search conponents by their characteristics....but I don't have it and so I don't use it And beetween pcb editor and la
Where should I start learning pcb design? Any good references and books...or commnets, please. How about this book? Complete pcb Design Using orcad Capture and Layout (By Kraig Mitzner) The reviews on this book are good. What do you think? I was first planning to buy this book, but what makes me hesitate buying this book is the (...)
Hi, In my company we only have orcad Capture. Sometimes we have to design small pcb by ourself. I would like to know what is the cheapest pcb tool which would be able to import netlist from orcad capture. Any suggestions ? Thanks, Franck.
Hello, you can renumber your schematic design by annotating and chose to reset all references to '?'. Then annotate the design and chose to number the references incremental. Create a netlist and import the netlist in the pcb editor. In the editor update the components in the place tab off the functions menu. Regards, Bart.
