Many good introductions to Capture and PSpice can be found on the web and in textbooks.

Tutorials on OrCAD

This solves the common problem of students who create the wrong type of project. It is far more comprehensive and authoritative than my tutorials, listed below.

Here is my rather long-winded tutorial for students who have never used these applications before. This behaviour can be changed with an option in the Miscellaneous tab cadejce the Preferences dialog box.

Tutorials on Cadence OrCAD Capture, PSpice and PCB Designer

I recommend this strongly. Unfortunately the tutorials that come with PCB Designer are fairly limited, given the complexity of the software, and it is not easy for newcomers to navigate around the documentation. There are few changes in functionality beyond version It covers the general principles of designing a PCB, including a lot of useful reference material, as well as the software itself.


This introduction guides you through two simple designs and is followed by a list of slightly more advanced techniques. The detailed descriptions of commands are excellent tutotial you need to be reasonably familiar with the tools before this tugorial meaningful. I have not yet updated it for version A few minor points are already out of date because the author uses version Please send me a note if you find them useful and that might encourage me to keep them up to date!

I have updated it for versions The tutorial is based on my introductory course on PCB design. We use a local library of footprints that includes extra large pads to make assembly easier for inexperienced students. The main difference between the two is the way in which the padstacks are modified to get guide holes for the drill.

The tutorial was originally written for version Most people are probably not interested in the extra material but here is the handout for completeness. Suggestions for improving them would of course be welcome too.


It uses Cadencce It has been updated for version The biggest alteration in the interface is the Place Part dialog box, which has cadehce a pop-out panel. An excellent book was published in on this software: Most PCBs for students are made in-house using photomasks printed directly from PCB Editor; this needs considerable manipulation of the colours and visibility because PCB Editor was not designed for such an old-fashioned process!

Please send me a note if you would like a copy of the local library of footprints mentioned above. However, instructors will be delighted to hear that the type of project can be changed in version I teach several courses that use different applications in the Cadence OrCAD suite and have collected the handouts here. Right-click on a design file with extension.

We also require guide holes in the pads for the drill, which requires specially modified padstacks.
