OrCad Capture

  • What's Good About Browsing For Power Pins in Capture? It's In SPB16.3!

    The SPB16.3 release of Allegro Design Entry CIS (Capture) now allows you to browse power pins in your design. In Capture, most of the design’s power pins are invisible, which makes it difficult to find power pins. The new "browse power pins" capability will help you find the pins faster...

  • Duplicate Name properties in hierarchical design, Capture 16.2

    I recently updated to 16.2 capture. I am trying to netlist a design that was done in 16.0 When I netlist, I get the Error [ALG0078] Identical Name property value on two instances in the design. This previously netlisted OK with 16. I tried to change the name in the property editor, but changes of the...

  • Re: RE: Install SPB 16.0

    Here's the great part. I can't install the program and Cadence is not accepting my Host ID number so that I can see this solution. I am wondering if the company is trying to get me to walk away from its product altogether by creating an impossible environment for me. In any case, where do I find...
