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 (...)
Good day to all, Please I need your support and guide on how to solve this Problem.I am using orcad pcb editor 16.0 for my circuit design.After completing the layout,i generated the Gerber files and sent it to the company that will produce the Board but the Company sent a message to me that my Bottom Soldermask contain Component (...)

hi sir/madam i wanna know how to use general edit and etch edit options in orcad pcb editor. if we used it once how we have to deselect or remove from our design.
Select "open board in orcad pcb editor" radio button in create netlist > pcb editor tab (this can found in bottom most section of dialog). This would launch pcb editor in demo mode and you should not get any licensing error. All other option (to launch board) in this (...)
You can Do ECO on existing board instead of creating new board. Default setting in orcad Capture- pcb editor is to create new board. You can change this to perform ECO by defining input board, keep input and output board name same. This would save all changes done by you on board and push only incremental changes from schematic.
hi sir/madam i designed 4-layer pcb using orcad pcb editor. in these one problem occured problem description: found some stubs in all copper layers. i used via to interconnect top layer to inner planes, and inner place to bottom is this process is correct or not. now i wanna overcome above problem.

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 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.
Can orcad pcb editor generate a fabrication drawing? My board house is requesting one thanks
orcad layout, just save the pcb file it is the default extension. orcad schematics, read the online help and learn how the systems interact. orcad layout (*.max) has been superceded by orcad pcb editor (*.brd).
I have orcad 15.6, I am ready to place parts. Is there a way to automatically place a row of resisters of my choosing? I would like to have the row be uniform, and all the resisters have the same footprint.
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 (...)
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?
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
Hi Everyone, I'm trying in pcb editor to create a padstack that has full contact to a ground plane. No matter what I try I always get a thermal relief (four spokes) when ideally what I would like is a full contact connection and the hole plated (It is in fact a mounting hole that connects to a copper plane for thermal cooling). I would have tho
Hi, I am able to develop the entire pcb process with cadence from schematic entry with capture/capture cis, from pcb loyout with pcb editor and so on.
