In this section, Kirsch explains what OrCAD software is, why you should use it and how to install the software.
OrCAD is the industry-leading software for PCB design. After watching this video, you will be able to tell the advantages of using OrCAD over other PCB design software programs.
The PCB Design process consists of three main phases. After watching this video, you will able to describe how OrCAD or Allegro is used to accomplish the phases in a PCB design flow.
There is a major difference between OrCAD Lite and OrCAD Trial. After watching this video, you will be able to tell the difference between OrCAD Lite and the Trial and which one to install.
OrCAD Lite has a number of features similar to the full version of the software but it is different from the Trial. After this video, you will know how to install the Lite version of OrCAD, not the trial or full version.
Phases 1 and 2 deal with capturing your idea and testing the circuit functionality through simulation. After this section you will be able to find parts in the software library, draw your circuit diagram using Capture, and simulate the circuit and see that it works using PSpice.
Capturing your high-level circuit design lays out the plan for everything. In this video you will learn how to create a drawing plan in Capture and how to simulate it in PSpice to know it will work.
Phase 3 deals with actually making your PCB a reasonable physical design. After completing this section, you will be able to set up your PCB design environment, place components and route your printed circuit board.
You have to associate physical parts to create a physical design. After watching this video, you will know how to set up files and Allegro PCB Editor software to start the physical design process for your PCB.
Routing establishes electrical connectivity for your circuit to work. After this video, you will know how to connect components together to ensure real-world functionality, just like you verified in your PSpice simulation.
We use artwork files to tell manufacturers how to make our PCBs. After finishing this section you will be able to generate artwork files using the Gerber standard, for your top and bottom layers for your PCB and also your drill file for the PCB.

We go over what you learned about the PCB design process in this project.
Let's review what you have learned. After watching this video, you will understand the phases and steps to take to start and finish a PCB design using OrCAD Capture, PSpice and Allegro PCB Editor.

Are you confused about the PCB design process in OrCAD / Allegro / PSpice but don't know where to start? Do you need to learn the software to excel at your work or to get a new job? Then this course is for you.

Whether you have used other PCB design software like KiCAD, Eagle, Altium, EasyEDA, Upverter, etc. you will learn the high-level overview of the printed circuit board design process using OrCAD (similar to Allegro).

Requirements

  • A passion for learning
  • Windows machine you can install software onto
