No. 249 Automatic updates for OrCAD/Allegro

Never miss another update for OrCAD/Allegro! In this video you can see how easy it is to enable automatic updates in the Download Manager.


Nr. 248 Use 45 degree wires in Capture

In OrCAD Capture you often work with 90 degree angles for connections. You can also use 45 degree wires, which gives a better understanding of the circuit.


Nr 247 How to use large STEP files in 3D canvas

STEP files for mechanical elements such as frames or plugin prints can be extremely large. You can easily enable the use of these large STEP files, so they will be part of your 3D canvas.


No. 246 Use PSpice output file as project documentation

The PSpice output file stores relevant information about models, tolerances, circuit values, and calculated values. Therefore, you can easily use the file as a documentation of your project.


No. 245 Optimize performance for 3D mechanical mapping

A PCB can contain a lot of 3D elements, and you can optimize performance when adding mechanical elements to the PCB with the Step Package mapping feature.


No. 244 Central control of Capture settings

In OrCAD Capture, the settings can be handled on a central level. The advantage is that everyone works with the same settings as well as that setting up a new PC takes minimal time. This is easily controlled with INI files.
