Cadence Design Systems Inc. expanded its OrCAD line with three products to accelerate the mainstream PCB design process, and to increase productivity and efficiency.

The OrCAD products include OrCAD Engineering Data Management (EDM), a comprehensive collaboration and management environment for OrCAD Capture; OrCAD Library Builder, a rapid automated part builder; and OrCAD Documentation Editor, an intelligent, automated PCB documentation environment.

OrCAD EDM enables efficient schematic design collaboration and management among engineering teams within the OrCAD Capture environment. It combines an easy-to-use, intuitive interface with design and data management capabilities to ensure that data integrity and project status are managed throughout the schematic design process. EDM enables engineers to work collaboratively together as a group, regardless of geographic location, resulting in better team productivity and efficiency.

OrCAD Library Builder provides a single integrated environment for the rapid creation of complete OrCAD parts by harvesting readily available component IP from online component catalogues and device specification sheet PDFs using an automated correct-by-construction approach. The automated and interactive technology significantly decreases part creation timeby as much as 70 per cent for complex partswhile the advanced PDF datasheet extraction technology eliminates countless hours of manual data entry and creation to extract data from pin tables and diagrams to build parts.

OrCAD Documentation Editor provides an intelligent, interactive PCB documentation environment. It enhances and simplifies the PCB documentation process by automating the creation of documentation elements, manufacturing views, details, and tables. Utilising advanced technology that directly leverages PCB design data, synchronises engineering change orders (ECOs), and enables dynamic content, Documentation Editor streamlines the entire process from creation through distribution. It shortens PCB design time by reducing documentation time up to 80 per cent.
