Powered by industry-leading electronic components supplier Arrow®, Capture users now have access to comprehensive online component and reference design data available through Arrow (SiliconExpert) from within OrCAD Capture, so that you can deliver your innovative design to market faster with the right parts.
Back in January 2016, Arrow Electronics and Cadence Design Systems announced a strategic partnership with a goal of accelerating the development of designs for engineers, allowing products to reach the market faster and become more affordable for the consumer. The first product of this multi-year strategic engagement is the addition of a new reference design library inside OrCAD® Capture.
Reference Designs Ready for Download
The new reference design library provides OrCAD Capture users with access to over 12,000 (and growing) reference designs directly within their current schematic capture environment. Users can easily search and download designs in OrCAD format to accelerate the PCB design process and shorten the time it takes to achieve production-ready designs. Engineers are free to re-use as much or as little of the reference design as makes senses for their project enabling them to get a jump start on the design and focus their time on the differentiating aspects of their products.
Capture users now can have an easy access to thousands of reference designs available through SiliconExpert inside Capture. They are now able to search reference design materials without leaving Capture environment and open the reference inside Capture to accelerate the PCB design process and shorten the time it takes to achieve production ready designs.
