Cadence Design Systems upgraded its PCB design software OrCAD to include OrCAD Engineering Data Management (EDM), OrCAD Library Builder and OrCAD Documentation Editor.
OrCAD EDM features schematic design collaboration and management among far-away (geographically) engineering teams within the OrCAD Capture environment.
OrCAD Library Builder harvests component IP from on-line component catalogs and PDF Data sheets of semiconductor Ics and other components. The automated part capturing technology eliminates manual keying of specifications from the data sheets.
OrCAD Documentation Editor automate the creation of documentation elements, manufacturing views, details, and tables. It shortens PCB design time by reducing documentation time up to 60 to 80 percent.
