    Capture to Concept translator? Reply

    Does anyone have the Cap2Con translator they could give me? I've been made aware it's now only available through the "Services" department at Cadence. I need to translate all my legacy Capture schematics to Concept, and need the tool to get going. It IS NOT installed with the current tools (since v14 I suspect). Thanks in advance. Mitch

    Update. Cadence does have one available. It is not supported by Cadence.
    I no longer need assistance.

    Good day.

    Re: Capture to Concept translator? Reply

     Hi All,

               This is Kiruba. I am working on a PCB design project. I am using Allegro 16.3 Concept  HDL to create schematics. I dont have access to all the libraries in my linux version. I need LED, Transformers and other passive component symbols which are not available. Is there a way to convert the Orcad capture library to concept or can I download the library files at some place? I heard cap2con will do that but it is only for windows verion. i have a linux version.

     Thanks in advance

    You can use PCB Librarian and it will convert OrCAD library parts to DEHDL (ConceptHDL).

    Regards,

     If you need to translate schematics, then in addition to cap2con.exe from Cadence, Elgris (www.elgris.com) has the tool E-studio to translate schematics and libraries from OrCAD to Concept.

     Hello,

     I am running version 16.6.005 and when I tried to run cap2con.exe in command prompt or by doule-click the file, nothing happens. Can someone help me with this? Thanks.

    Check the documentation in the Part Developer Users Guide, pdv.pdf in the doc\pdv directory of the installation, page 391 for 16.6. Only runs on Windows, needs a PCB Librarian Expert product license to start.
