    Capture Netlist Error Reply

     Hi all,

    I'm new to orcad capture. I designed a small circuit and tried to generate a netlist using PCB editor option, but i got an erroras shown below.

     

    Configuration File:
    C:\Cadence\SPB_16.5\tools\capture\allegro.cfg

    Spawning... "C:\Cadence\SPB_16.5\tools\capture\pstswp.exe" -pst -d "e:\cad\1\design1.dsn" -n "E:\CAD\NETLIST" -c "C:\Cadence\SPB_16.5\tools\capture\allegro.cfg" -v 3  -w -l 31 -s "" -j "PCB Footprint" -hpath "HPathForCollision"

    I'll be pleased if some one clarify the doubts about the error .

     

    Thanks in Advance

    I had this issue myself just yesterday. You need to assign a pcb footprint for each part on the schematic BEFORE generating the netlist. In older versions you didn't have to do this and could assign footprints as the netlist was being read into Layout.

    Click on each part and select "Edit Properties". Then find the cell for the PCB Footprint and type in the name of the footprint you want to use for that specific part.

    Tom
