    Introductory tutorial on OrCAD PCB Designer Reply
    I run an introductory course on PCB design for my department and have changed from Layout to OrCAD PCB Editor this year. The classes went well but it took a lot of effort on my part to set up the new course because I did not find the Cadence tutorials as helpful as I would have liked. I'd therefore be happy to send a copy of the course notes to anybody who is doing something similar in the hope that you will not have to spend as much time on it as I did! Unfortunately the pdf file exceeds the upload limit because there are numerous images so you will have to send me an email at jdavies@elec.gla.ac.uk. There's a lot of local material in the notes, mainly related to our rather old-fashioned facilities for making PCBs, and some revision of Capture and PSpice, but the instructions on PCB Editor should be generally applicable. The tutorial is definitely introductory – two layers, low frequency, nothing fancy. The text is written in LaTeX and the images are in pdf.

    Update: don't send me an email; download the tutorial from userweb.eng.gla.ac.uk/john.davies/orcad.

    John,

    Thank you for the handout you sent. I've found it very detailed. The remarks on the jargon and compatibility issues are extremely useful.

    Regards, Lajos

    Hi,

    You could also direct students to the web site http://www.referencedesigner.com/tutorials/allegro/allegro_page_1.php which contains an introduction, although not everything is finished up on this link.

    Best regards Ole

    Re: Introductory tutorial on OrCAD PCB Designer - now on the web Reply
    The tutorial can now be downloaded from my web page at userweb.eng.gla.ac.uk/john.davies/orcad. This means that you no longer have to send me an email to request the tutorial but I would still appreciate a note if you find it useful. This might encourage me to keep it up to date!
