Fig: Cadence Orcad 16.5 Free Download
The design step to design PCB board is to enter the electronics schematics, then to perform simulation and other analysis. If the simulation result are correct then footprint are added for PCB board design. Then the next step is to transfer the designed Orcad schematics to PCB layout tool called allegro PCB. The nice feature of this pcb board design software is that there are lots of automation during the transfer process of orcad schematic to PCB board design making it easy for designers to quickly develop PCB for manufacturing. During the PCB design, it provides very useful features such as components placing, auto routing and design of multiple layer pcb and others. After the PCB board design is completed, it generates Geber PCB file required by the PCB manufacturers. Gerber PCB is the final file required which in case of orcad is generated by the artwork tool. See the orcad capture video tutorials.
