Tackle design challenges with automation

All electronic designs, regardless of industry have to meet design and manufacturing specifications. OrCAD makes it possible to build well vetted designs with an array of manufacturing checks and a streamlined documentation process.

Bring your products to life

Real-time visual feedback and a dynamic 3D environment helps you create something you’re proud of. Accelerate time to market with processes that enable design automation, reusing known good designs, and advanced routing functionalities.

Stay In-Sync

You’ve got a lot of moving parts. Keeping track of your BOM, variants, mechanicals, and more doesn’t have to be tedious. Our design environment enables seamless integration between schematic, layout, analysis and even MCAD tools, making it easy to manage your design data.

Capture Design Intent

Streamline your circuit design with hierarchical, reuse and variant design capabilities while leveraging Electrical Rule Checks, and an integrated part search dashboard to improve productivity.

Simulate for early insight

Visually create and test designs before developing hardware with the industry leading gold standard for SPICE simulation and easily ensure design functionality with component stress and tolerance testing, performance and yield optimization and more.

Customer Stories
We chose PSpice for several reasons. The availability and selection of models is vast and updated online. Time saving features like the Checkpoint Restart allows me to store simulation states at various time-points and then restart simulations from any of the simulation states. All in all its a great product and is a key part of our design team. I can see why it is the industry standard.

OrCAD PCB Designer with PSpice provides my business with an integrated development tool that works from the first schematic concept, through simulation and on to product realization - all straight out of the box. It's even useful during hardware debug as the link between the Capture and PCB Designer allows for quick and easy track tracing. Add in the effective and intelligent customer support and you have a first-class package. OrCAD Capture allows me to get on with the job of designing electronics without having to fight my software. From jobs with 10 components on a single sheet through to complex hierarchical systems with 30 schematic pages, Capture has handled it all.

We purchased OrCAD Layout and it was good value for money. We felt that it was not meeting the requirements for today’s high-speed technology and complex designs, and were pleased to hear that the product was to be upgraded. The new, OrCAD PCB Designer utilizes the highly regarded Allegro PCB Design Editor which has brought greater efficiency in component placement and routing; we were very impressed with the way it handled routing in planes/copper pouring etc. Library management is significantly improved and there is a general feeling of increased productivity. It is fully compatible with the high-end Allegro product range.
