Stay connected

  • Cloud workspace

    It’s time to streamline and elevate your documentation process.

    LiveDoc simplifies the task of swiftly completing your manufacturing documentation using pre-configured templates featuring common views, pre-populated fabrication and assembly drawings, efficient dimensioning, and easy access to frequently used objects like revision blocks and drill charts.

    Changes made in the PCB canvas are automatically and dynamically reflected in the manufacturing documentation in real-time, minimizing the risk of errors and saving time on consuming rework.

  • LiveBOM

    Identify potential supply chain risks early in the design phase and gain access to up-to-date information on regulatory compliance, lead times, costs, risk predictions, and lifecycle details for thousands of parts.

    Make informed decisions and ensure your designs align with regulatory standards to minimize delays and unexpected costs.

    Whether it's streamlining manufacturing processes or enhancing product longevity, OrCAD X provides the tools to fortify your design against potential hurdles. 

  • PCB design, OrCAD X

    2-person PCB design with 

    Symphony

    Boost the efficiency of PCB layout with Symphony in OrCAD X Presto. This cloud-driven collaboration feature enables two users to work concurrently within the same database.

    Both users are visually present in the design, and the PCB is updated in real-time, fostering a collaborative team environment for efficient layout, routing, analysis, and review.

    This approach eliminates the need for manual pauses, saving and exchanging files, or exchanging messages between team members.

  • ECAD/MCAD Collaboration

    With MCADX, you can now efficiently synchronize your electrical designs in OrCAD X with the corresponding mechanical aspects in SOLIDWORKS.

    This on-demand collaboration ensures a real-time and comprehensive understanding of both the electrical and mechanical dimensions, streamlining the integration process.

    By bridging the gap between the two design environments, MCADX enhances the overall design process, minimizes errors, accelerates the design iteration cycle, and ultimately results in a more robust and seamlessly integrated final product.

Make it Presto

  • New PCB environment

    Presto PCB Editor combines the robustness of your familiar PCB Editor with a modernized UI/UX for a seamless and efficient implementation. You can easily switch between Presto and PCB Editor based on your preferences.

    Experience the power of a user-friendly interface, eliminating the learning curve and boosting productivity. Navigate, place & route, analyze, correct, and visualize your PCB.

    With features like MCAD collaboration, concurrent PCB layout, and integrated signal & power analysis, team design is redefined. Fully compatible with Allegro & OrCAD PCB Editors, Presto maintains scalability for existing users.

  • Allegro routine engine

    OrCAD X grants access to the industry-leading Allegro routing engine, trusted by the world's leading companies for the most intricate board designs.

    Overcome any routing challenge confidently, knowing that your tools won't hinder your progress. Its clean UI eliminates complex commands buried in menus, allowing you to enable commands directly on your design canvas.

    Prioritizing clickability and customization, OrCAD X ensures an efficient design process.

  • Global Search Engine

    In OrCAD X Presto, locating and editing PCB elements is effortless with the intuitive search pane.

    Enjoy seamless identification of components, pins, nets, traces, shapes, design rule errors, and more using intelligent wildcard searching and filtering options.

    With bi-directional cross-probing, efficiently review and modify design aspects directly on the PCB canvas, streamlining your PCB layout process.

Achieve accuracy and precision

  • LiveDOC

    It’s time to streamline and elevate your documentation process.

    LiveDoc simplifies the task of swiftly completing your manufacturing documentation using pre-configured templates featuring common views, pre-populated fabrication and assembly drawings, efficient dimensioning, and easy access to frequently used objects like revision blocks and drill charts.

    Changes made in the PCB canvas are automatically and dynamically reflected in the manufacturing documentation in real-time, minimizing the risk of errors and saving time on consuming rework.

  • New 3D engine

    The optimized 3D engine integrated into OrCAD X addresses 3D intricacies with ease. Whether it's refining component placement, optimizing spacing, or resolving collisions, the enhanced 3D engine seamlessly navigates both 2D and 3D views.

    View and quiry about your designs in 3D to ensure a thorough check for clearance and collision issues. The 3D view and functionality have been elevated to provide a quicker and more robust experience.

    Streamline the export process with fully customizable options for the contents and output formats, including STEP, PDF, IGES, and ACIS.

  • Review and Markup

    Enable precise feedback directly within the Presto Canvas by commenting on specific design elements, attaching snapshots for visual context, and tagging co-workers for efficient collaboration.

    All feedback is embedded into the design database, ensuring data integrity and providing a comprehensive record of the review process.

    This streamlined approach enhances communication, fosters real-time interaction, and elevates transparency in the design lifecycle, making it an indispensable tool for distributed design teams and multiple stakeholders.

  • Upgraded constraint management

    OrCAD X extends your access to the Allegro constraint manager environment, a leading feature in the industry.

    Experience real-time feedback during your design process with an extensive rule set, guaranteeing functionality and manufacturability.

    This includes electrical rules like differential pairs, propagation delays, and return path, as well as physical and spacing rules, manufacturing guidelines, 3D clearance checks, and more.
