Description PCB Design Using Cadence OrCAD Capture, PSpice and Allegro Free Download
“If you would like to have a head start on Orcad schematic capture and PCB layout and don’t have time or budget to take a 2-3 day training class which normally cost about at least $2000 dollars, this course will do. This course helped me tremendously with my real life project – I really appreciate the course – I’m glad I found it at the time when I need it the most. I strongly recommend this course!”

“Its good to learn the pspice simulation along with the pcb designing… Thank you”

Have you been looking for the best tool to design simple electronics printed circuit boards for free? Even more so, have you tried learning OrCAD, but it was too hard to learn without help? Wouldn’t it be great if there were short videos, created by experienced users, with tutorials on PCB and schematic design using Cadence’s OrCAD software?
If you are looking for an in-depth walkthrough of the PCB design process and an introduction on how to use OrCAD Capture and PCB Editor, look no further. In this course you will use OrCAD Lite 17.2 to test out and learn some basic features of OrCAD Capture CIS, PSPICE and PCB Editor for free.
The Circuits You Will Be Designing
This introductory course shows you how to create 3 very simple printed circuit boards:
1. A small, 2-layer LED + Resistor circuit with 2 connectors
2. A 2-layer asynchronous multivibrator circuit with 2 transistors, 4 resistors, 2 capacitors, 2 LEDs, connectors, and test points
3. A 2-layer re-mixed version of the asynchronous multivibrator circuit that also includes a 555 timer chip and 3D modeling.
What I like about the above circuits is they have just the right amount of simplicity for you to focus on the electronics engineering design process. At the same time, the above circuit projects have enough variety to demonstrate most of the skills you need to create through-hole and surface-mount footprints and finish a simple PCB.
This course focuses on the simple and on principles. It is not for 4+ layer boards. It is only for those new to the software and don’t know how the PCB design flow works in OrCAD / Allegro.
Who this course is NOT for: Experienced hardware design engineers or professionals already in the field. It’s also NOT for anyone looking to make a complex Analog-digital PCB or switch mode power supply. If you are an experienced hardware design engineer then this course is likely too simple for you.
Why should you start becoming familiar with OrCAD?
Once you learn OrCAD, you can learn any other PCB design software, quickly and easily. OrCAD and Allegro are the industry standard PCB design software for printed circuit board designs. Every serious electronics design engineer must know OrCAD to be competitive in the hardware design engineering field and the computer tech industry.
- This course will be useful to college students studying electrical and hardware engineering, electronic hobbyists and tinkerers, hardware design engineers who have experience with other PCB design tools such as Altium, AutoDesk Eagle, Diptrace and KiCAD
- My target student is a complete beginner in electrical circuit and printed circuit board design who have worked or currently work in electrical design software for circuit boards. Our course is for beginner level students looking to advance their skills in drawing, simulating and modeling simple 2-layer circuit boards quickly and easily.
- Anyone who wants to create 2-layer printed circuit boards on a Windows PC using OrCAD Capture and PCB Editor
- Electrical engineering college students and industry professionals who need a quick intro to some basics in OrCAD, PSPice and Allegro fast
- Beginner electronics students curious about schematic and PCB design software and how the heck OrCAD and PCB Editor work together
