  • Orcad Capture: Changing a homogenous symbol into a heterogene and add a part - Can it be done?
    Dear forum, Is there a way to change a homogenous part to a heterogenous and add a part within it? What I would like to do is to edit say a 4 part gate, delete the (hidden) power pins, add a fifth "power part" and place the power pins (visible) on that part. There are large libraries included with the products, but having ...

  • Why such small signs ("+", "-" etc) in PCB-Editor fonts?
    To whom it may concern at the Cadence PCB Editor development center: Why are the "polarity" signs such as "+" or "-" so infernally small compared to the size of the letters? For instance: If I want to put some text on the silkscreen next to a screw terminal and write "+24V ...

  • Re: Gerber & Drill Viewer - What's out there?
    Been there. Done That. My problem is that the drill data will not display in the same scale as the gerber data. I use Metric output, with same accuracy x,y for both Gerber 274X and Drill but ViewMate rescales the drill data to something which I am not able to adjust.

  • (16.5+) Capture Symbol Editor Wish-list
    One thing that I find a bit annoying is the repeated grid toggling when creating schematic symbols. Yes: It is essential to stay on grid when placing pins. Yes: It is a must to be able to place internal symbol graphics to a detail that requires the grid to be turned off. As of now, I have to get in and out of the Preferences menu all ...

  • Mentor Import: From what product?
    Next question: I have a design made using Mentor Expedition (EE7.x) that I want to import to my Allegro installation. From what I can see, the Import tool in Allegro is from Mentor Board Station (nets.nets, comps.comps, (etc)). Which means: Not to be used with Expedition... But if I am wrong, then do I need to do an ASCII-Out in order to ...

  • Re: Footprint property for Allegro
    To answer your first question; Yes - these are the names you should enter.  In general: I have seen questions like "Where can I find footprints for download" many times. Of course, there are small libraries around on the internet that can be downloaded and used but beware - There are many opinions regarding the pad and courtyard ...
