What's Good About Capture’s Update Cache? 16.6 Has a Few Enhancements!

The 16.6 OrCad Capture release now allows you to replace multiple cache parts in one operation. In addition, all options of Replace Cache now work on Update Cache.

Read on for more details…

In earlier releases, you could not use the options available under “Replace Cache” for “Update Cache” operations. You now have the option to select multiple parts in cache and replace them in one operation:

Consider the following example. Expand the “Design Cache” folder in project window – there are two listings of 74ALS573:


Select both the items listed with 74ALS273and select RMB “Replace Cache”:


Select the 74ALS.olb library from Cadence installation hierarchy and select the 74ALS273 gate from it. Press OK. Note that multiple parts were updated using the “Replace Cache” options.

Please share your experiences using this new capability
