Now for those who want to know more about OrCAD 17.2

PSpice Systems Solution

The integration of Cadence® PSpice® with MathWorks MATLAB and Simulink provides a complete system-level simulation solution for PCB design and implementation. Utilize PSpice for analog/mixed-signal simulation and perform MATLAB/Simulink behavioural-level modelling, analysis, and visualization in single, integrated system design and debug environment, improving productivity and accelerating time to market.

Interactive3D Canvas Updates with Rigid-Flex

We are continuously adding new functionalities to the OrCAD Interactive3D Canvas. Now you can even visualize bending of a multi-zone rigid-flex design. You can view its folded state, conduct collision checks when the design is bent, and measure a selected path in 3D mode. Key 3D features in OrCAD 17.2 include:

  • 3D bending of flex materials
  • 3D component placement and movement
  • 3D spacing measurements

Seamless MCAD-ECAD Collaboration

The MCAD collaboration environment in the OrCAD PCB Editor streamlines the collaboration process by enabling a shared IDX-based repository that both OrCAD tools and other MCAD tools can read and write. It reduces the concern for managing multiple changes and errors that may occur during the design cycle. Since the OrCAD MCAD-ECAD solution is based on an IDX-based repository, it’s vendor-neutral. In other words, any MCAD solution that supports IDX should be able to integrate with OrCAD. With OrCAD, collaboration with MCAD engineers is just as easy as the push of a button.

General Productivity Enhancements

Command Window – The command window keeps a log of all your activity and makes it quick to invoke a command. Just type your command and press enter. View Video

Dynamic Component Alignment – Align your components dynamically with snapping guidelines similar to Microsoft tools.

Dynamic Ratsnesting – Update your ratsnests in real-time during the component movement.

Multi-Destination Paste – New copy/paste behaviour allows multi-destination pasted and copied items to be stored and recalled later.

    Hello! Thanks for sharing! I’ve downloaded this version 17.2 and cracked then got it running. However when it comes to the Pspice MATLAB Co-simulation function, I was alerted that I don’t have a proper license. Could you please help me, if you have tried this function or you’ve got a know solution? Thanks a lot XD

    • Esteban says:

      Have you solved this problem? I don’t even have the folder \pspcosim\

    • Matt says:

      While I haven’t gotten that far, it seems like the Matlab portion isn’t integrated? When i do Pspice A/D and goto Tools menu, there doesn’t exist a Matlab option which seems to go against what the documentation for Pspice says.

    you must extract the downloaded rar file first. to do this simply right click and the file and click extract. Then when doing step 7 and going to the second line with the first button, you’ll go to the extracted file and then click the second rar file.
    hopefully this helped

    You need clearer instructions. I’ve updated them for you.
    1. Use Revo Uninstaller or similar in advanced mode to remove any old version of Cadence and clean up the registry, if you have ever had a version of Cadence on your computer.
    2. Disable your antivirus. From this point forward, study these instructions and follow them EXACTLY.
    3. Unzip the folder AleegoCrackMasterV2_1_2.7z and its AleegoCrackMasterV2 subfolder.
    4. Run (as Administrator) the AleegoCrackMasterV2.exe file.
    5. The macro app will appear.  First, remove the scoreboard in the middle by clicking on its top right corner “X”.
    6. Click on the lower right corner [Chinese text] button.
    7. In the window that appears, on the second line, use the first button [Chinese text] to browse back and then select the file in the folder “Distr_Cadence”, “Cadence SPB 17.2-2016“.
    8. In the third line, click on the button on the right [Chinese text] to launch a folder selection window. Create a folder [suggested: “C:\Cadence”] and select it as the installation directory. This select may show as “C:\”.
    9. Click on the lower right corner button.
    10. In the next window there will appear three successive selection frames. In each, click on the blue circle.
    11. A window will open that will display the installation process. It will be run fully automatically by a macro, and will take a while. Don’t do ANYTHING on your computer while it is running. Sit back and watch. The macro needs to maintain focus, so clicking the mouse elsewhere may prevent parts from completing.  If your computer is slow, this will be tedious. Installing into a SSD might help.
    12. At completion, a picture of a man holding a scan diagram will appear.  Close that window (red circle top right). Confirm “yes” in popup window.
    13. Reboot computer.  Locate the capture.exe file and create a shortcut.  The file is probably “C:\Cadence\Cadence_SPB_17.2-2016\tools\bin\Capture.exe”.
    [There is a password in the Chinese language instructions: — however it is not clear where to use this password. Perhaps nowhere.] 
    14. Run.  Choose the “Orcad Capture” run set. Click OK. Orcad will do some self-registration actions for a few seconds and then stop. All should now work.
    15. At some point your Windows firewall may offer to allow access to Orcad. Leave it blocked.
