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.
I am not an orcad DB expert, but I think that, prior to 16.4 or so, the orcad pcb editor (both standard and Pro versions) was a separate product and not fully compatible with the Allegro flagship product version. They are now all capable of working with/opening each others' designs (though the pcb (...)
I am very familiar with orcad Layout 15.7. Unfortunately orcad pcb editor 16.6 is nothing remotely similar. I added several lines of text on the silkscreen layer (board name/number/etc.) as a "User Part Number". However I now want to add more text and every time I go to add a text string it is forcing me to choose an (...)
Hi Can anyone tell me hoe to open orcad layout with Allegro pcb editor. When I use CAD translator in Cadence 16.6 version it gives the following error. ERROR (Layout To Allegro pcb Design), Fatal error processing MAX file...see LAYOUT.LOG for information. Thanks in Anticipation.
hi I want to learn and design professional High Speed pcb Boards for FPGA etc. I have a work experience on orcad 16 Layout 16 and have designed RF Power Amplifier pcb's up-to 2GHz using ADS. What are the leaning steps involved and which tool is required (Altium, pcb editor etc)? Do i need to follow any (...)
Don't be afraid to us "Google", or RTFM, and then buy a book on the subject. There are a lot of books available. A simple search on will list a lot of books on the subject. - Make Your Own pcbs with EAGLE: From Schematic Designs to Finished Boards - Complete pcb Design Using orcad Capture and pcb editor - (...)
you have *.max file( layout plus file) or *.brd file ( allegro pcb editor file)? for *.max you can save it as a template file and load the new netlist in to this template
Hi, I've been using orcad design for pcb design in a windows 7 PC. Now that i've upgraded to alaptop with windows 8, i had installed the software onto that. The tool is opening but dead slow. It takes almost 15 minutes to load, and another 10 minutes to open a design. Is it about windows 8? Should i try installing windows 7 and try it? Thanks
Hi, I would like to add full filled shape logo into my pcb design. I can do it if I import it from dxf file, but this is an empty model, so the logo is empty too. Then, at pcb proto is not well drawn. After having tested several kind of tricks to be able to have the logo as I wanted, I need some help to get it. First, the tricks tested: [
Hi All, I recently installed orcad pcb Designer on my new Windows 8 machine. Capture opens and runs just fine. pcb editor, however takes about 10 minutes to open. The CPU usage jumps from near 0 to 25% then creeps up to 100% during that time. Looking in the Task Manager Processes tab over 75% of the CPU is Service (...)
Hi, I'm trying to import my company's logo to layout (pcb editor), but it is being complicated. pcb editor: Logo is already converted to dxf format. Import works fine (File->Import->DXF). Components are properly assigned to layers (silkscreen top). Logo is imported but is huge[/
Hi, can someone explain me what is happening with pcb editor and this DRC Error, Line to SMD Pin Spacing (pictures attached)? Explanation: First, I route the USB_P trace, and no DRC error is shown. Then, I don't know how, the USB_P trace was hidden, but DRC error appears. 116538 Now, USB_P
After following all the steps to configure vias: 1. Create the via pad on Pad Designer. 2. Make definition for similar vias from BB Vias Setup on pcb editor. Setting start & end layers. 3. Add via to physical contraint set, at respective top layer. 4. At routing time, select start (Active) & End (Alternate) layers. I started to place the
Hi, there are some doubts I need to solve before adding vias to the layout. Two types of vias are needed, through hole and BBvias, could the drill hole be the same for both of them? Via Pad <= 0.3 mm Via Drill Hole <= 0.15 mm Which would be the recommended pad & drill hole for different kind of via? [/
Hi, I'm just developing my first pcb design, also with orcad. I have started to place components and routed some parts, but I have found several issues that I have to solve into Capture modifying the pins connection of some components. So, now I need to generate a new netlist file and update the brd file. Is it possible to update i
Hi, How to open .llb file of footprint of the components in orcad pcb editor?
Hi All, Just started using orcad pcb editor and orcad Capture. I am learning as I go because my company will not pay for training or maintenance. My background is Pads-Layout and Pads-Logic, so they feel I should be able to pick up orcad with not much fuss. Not turning out to be the case, but anyway. A (...)

I am trying few circuit design and pcb tools/softwares. I recently heard and visited cadence site and downloaded cadence orcad lite 16.5 (size was 980 mb). It works in demo mode and read - (download page) * Limitations are in the size and complexity of the design. okay, I designed a small chaser circuit with 555 and 4017, finally when cre
Hi sir/madam iam using orcad pcb editor. Iam having a problem while i modified the schematic and at a time i have to change it in layout also. But when iam generating netlist i lost the layout what previously i have drawn. Every time it opens on empty board file. So with this i have do layout repeated it taking a lot of (...)

You can have 3 layer boards. but can get problems as shown above. You need to either do an orcad course or read the help files regarding Gerber as being able to create them is quite a critical part of pcb design!!!

Dears I've been following this website for a long time and finally I'm able to join the community :) My first question might sound "silly" tough... I've just started using Altium ( i always used orcad) and i have a little problem: when i place a component on a pcb and i move it to the bottom layer, the color of the pads doesn't change. Let m
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, 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 (...)
Is there any easy way to assign footprints in orcad capture instead of entering each and every pcb footprints in Edit Properties.
Hi, I am currently doing a 2 layer design, most of the tracks are on the top layer, the bottom layer has a ground plane. There are some tracks that i had to route to the bottom layer using vias. When I try to manufacture the artwork, I get the following error:- ERROR: aborting film - Layer polarity of layer ETCH/BOTTOM does not m
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.
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 (...)
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
