OrCAD PCB Editor

  • procedure for gerber file/plot generation of specific layers - OrCAD PCB editor 16.3

    I have designed a very first circuit board using OrCAD PCb editor 16.3. I wish to generate outputs of the following layers: 1. Top layer, 2. Bottom layer, 3. Silkscreen top layer, 4. Soldermask top layer, 5. Soldermask bottom layer, 6. Drill drawing (location), and 7. Drill drawing (symbol and drill...

  • Problem with thermal relief size

    Hi, I'm a newbie. I have some problems with Orcad PCB Designed and thermal relief. I have edited a pad and defined this pad for all the layers: regular pad: circle 60 thermal relief: circle 80 antipad: circle 80 When I create a dynamic shape to create a copper pour region the ray of thermal relief...

  • Flexi-Rigid contacts / place component on inner layer?

    My current flexi-rigid design: Head section (rigid L1-6), Neck section (flexible L2-5), Body section (rigid L1-6), Tail section (flexible L4-5) with exposed contacts (J1) on L4 for insertion into a ZIF socket. I've created J1 as a component but can't place it on an inner layer i.e. L4. Can components...

  • Pad Seed Points

    Using OrCAD PCB Designer v16.3.S009 I would like to know how to control the copper seed point on a particular symbol, but not the whole design. I have a shield over a part that has 4 pads that are all GND. This part is on the top layer which has a GND copper pour dynamic shape. When I smooth the shapes...

  • Antenna Trace Relief

    Using Allegro OrCAD PCB Designer v16.3.S009 I have a 2.4GHz impedance controlled antenna trace that has a ground pour around it. I would like to pull back the ground pour at least 30 mils from this antenna trace. Is there a property or something in the net or trace that I can set such that it will automatically...

  • Re: Qusestion about plotting the pcb at Orcad pcb editor 16.0

    [quote user="Laoud"] Hello to everyone, I have finished the routing of a pcb and the last thing was to create a dynamic rectangle connected to ground. Everything is fine, but the only probleb is that whn I am trying to plot the board, this rectangle is formed by several individual lines instead...

  • Orcad PCB Designer 16.2 Selecting vias when manually routing.

    Hi, I have a design where I need to use two or more different via sizes when manually routing some tracking. I have these vias defined and have added them into the via list. However, the problem is that I cannot select any via other than the first one defined in the list. I'm sure I'm missing...

  • Database Error while Generating Artwork

    I'll start from the beginning: - I was working in a design and OrCAD PCB Designer crashed saying "Orcad has encountered an error and needs to close." or something to that effect. Then I clicked ok and the program shut down. - I opened it back up and continued to work. Everything seemed...

  • Dynamic shape with solid fill does not plot solid black

    We produce photomasks by changing the colors of the desired features to black and using the Plot command. This works well for most of the etch but not for dynamic shapes with solid fills, which print gray instead of black. Connect lines and cross-hatched fills print black but a solid fill does not. The...
