What is OrCAD PCB editor?
OrCAD® PCB Designer is a tiered, scalable PCB design solution that delivers advanced capabilities and highly integrated flows.
What is Padstack?
A via must also be defined as a padstack before it is added to a board design. You define the pad size and shape for all etch and non-etch layers in the Pad Designer. As previously discussed, you define the default routing layers (BEGIN LAYER, DEFAULT INTERNAL, and END LAYER).
Who uses OrCAD?
The software is used mainly by electronic design engineers and electronic technicians to create electronic schematics, perform mixed-signal simulation and electronic prints for manufacturing printed circuit boards.

What is Antipad in PCB?
An anti-pad refers to the area around a plated through-hole, which voids or restricts other signal traces that should not be connected to that particular through-hole. They are often added to avoid short-circuits between neighboring holes.
How do you make a pad in OrCAD?
Select File > New, specify a name for the padstack ensuring the save directory is set to the padpath location. Set the Padstack usage to SMD Pin. Set the units and decimal places as required. On the Design Layers tab change the Geometry dropdown for Regular Pad on Layer BEGIN LAYER from None to Shape Symbol.
Is OrCAD still used?
OrCAD Layout has been discontinued. The latest iteration of OrCAD CIS schematic capture software has the ability to maintain a database of available integrated circuits.
Is OrCAD same as PSpice?
OrCAD capture is a tool for capturing (drawing) schematics. PSpice is a circuit simulation tool.
