OrCAD Capture CIS

For fast, intuitive schematic editing and project management

Cadence® OrCAD® Capture offers a comprehensive solution for entering, modifying, and verifying complex system designs quickly and cost-effectively. Whether used to design a new analog circuit, revise a schematic diagram for an existing PCB, or design a digital block diagram with an HDL module, OrCAD Capture allows designers to enter, modify, and verify the PCB design. OrCAD Capture CIS integrates the schematic design application with the features of a component information system (CIS)



Schematic Editing
The full-featured schematic editor enables users to place and connect parts from a comprehensive set of functional libraries.

Project Management
The project manager enables users to collect and organize all the resources needed for the project throughout the design flow.

Hierarchical Design and Reuse
OrCAD Capture boosts schematic editing efficiency by enabling subcircuit reuse—without having to make multiple copies.

Libraries and Part Editing
The library editor is accessed directly from the user interface. Users can create and edit parts in the library or directly from the schematic page without interrupting workflow.

Easy Data Entry
Designers can access all part, net, pin, and title block properties or any subset and make changes quickly through the spreadsheet property editor. It simply requires selecting a circuit element, a grouped area, or an entire page, and then editing part, net, or pin properties.

Component Information System
OrCAD Capture CIS integrates the features of a component information system with Cadence schematic capture technology. This reduces production delays and cost overruns through efficient management of components. The time spent searching existing parts for reuse, manually entering part information content, and maintaining component data is reduced.

Extended CIS Documentation
CIS also provides powerful report generation. Instead of limiting designers to just those properties that reside in the schematic, CIS draws from the extensive wealth of information that resides in the preferred part database, taking report generation to the next level. Designers can generate BOMs using up-to-date, comprehensive, and complete information, and create reports through the Crystal report engine.

Architecture/Database Integration

  • Accepts plugins for programmable logic design and analog simulation
  • Allows for design creation and simulation in the same environment
  • Works with Microsoft’s ODBC-compliant databases
  • Users can access data directly in an MRP, ERP, and PDM
