OrCAD® Panel Editor intelligently automates the complex process of panel definition and documentation, simplifying the design process. This solution enables designers to quickly create electronic manufacturing documents that clearly articulate the panel specification and instructions for successful fabrication, assembly, and inspection of their designs. OrCAD Panel Editor is a PCB assembly (“array”) panel design tool that intelligently automates the panel definition and documentation process to produce simple or complex PCB assembly panels in a fraction of the time versus traditional manual methods. OrCAD Panel Editor enables you to quickly design your panel and create the manufacturing drawings that drive fabrication and assembly. Electronics manufacturers often panelize single-board designs into arrays or sub-panels to facilitate their PCB assembly process. PCB CAD tools are very good at designing the single board design or “one-up” PCB, but lack the necessary functionality to design the varied complexities and details that are required for panels. Beyond simply stepping and repeating a design, PCB panel design requires adding panel and manufacturing features such as pinning holes, milling, score lines, and breakaway tabs — which can be difficult and time consuming or simply unavailable in today’s CAD tools.
