OrCAD/Allegro PCB Editor (2 days)

Time: 9:00 – 17:00
Duration: 2 days

PCB Editor is a central part of the OrCAD PCB Designer and Allegro PCB design solutions. This two day course will cover all the necessary steps for designing a printed circuit board, from loading logic/netlist data through producing manufacturing/NC output

This course is for printed circuit designers and design engineers who have an understanding of PCB layout and manufacturing considerations.

You should have a working knowledge of PCB design and a basic understanding of PCB manufacturing processes. You must also be proficient with using Windows and standard Windows applications.
