It can also be scaled for additional signal exploration and signal integrity capabilities through OrCAD PCB SI.
  • OrCAD PCB Editor productivity improvements include Scribble Route, an auto/interactive routing feature, which allows the user to loosely sketch a path for a route as the system figures how to detail-route it, as well as group and contour routing updates and via arrays

PCB Editor Standard vs Professional

OrCAD PCB Editor Menu Optimization

In OrCAD 16.6-2015 Release, OrCAD introduced a vastly improved menu structure for PCB Editor based the feedback from our customers to help make your design process more smooth and efficient. This update (applicable on to OrCAD PCB), introduces a vastly improved menu structure based on customer requests, and with the mandate of making the out-of-the-box design experience faster and more intuitive.


This change will be enabled by default. The movie highlights the new menu optimization change. Customers who prefer the current menu structure will be able to choose between the two menu structures.

 Allegro PCB Editor users will have access to the new menu in one of the future releases.
