I have not yet updated it for version This solves the common problem of students who create the wrong type of project.
This introduction guides you through two simple designs and is followed by a list of slightly more advanced techniques. It covers the general principles of designing a PCB, including a lot of useful reference material, as well as the software itself.

This behaviour can be changed with an option tutirial the Miscellaneous tab of the Preferences dialog box. The main difference between the two is the way in which the padstacks are modified to get guide holes for the drill.
We use a local library of footprints that includes extra large pads to make assembly easier for inexperienced students. Most people are probably not interested in the extra material but here is the handout for completeness. There are few changes in functionality beyond version The biggest alteration in the interface is the Place Part dialog box, which has become a pop-out panel.
Unfortunately the tutorials that come with PCB Designer are fairly limited, given the complexity of the software, and it is not easy for newcomers to navigate around the documentation.
It has been updated for version However, 1.5 will be delighted to hear that the type of project can be changed in version The detailed descriptions of commands are excellent but you need to be reasonably familiar with the tools before this becomes meaningful. The tutorial was originally written for version It is far more comprehensive and authoritative than my tutorials, listed below.
Please send me a note if you would like a cadencee of the local library of footprints mentioned above.
It uses OrCAD An excellent book was published in on this software: A few minor points are already out of date because the author uses version ocrad We also require guide holes in the pads for the drill, which requires specially modified padstacks. Please send me a note if you find them useful and that might encourage me to keep them up to date!
I recommend this strongly. Here is my rather long-winded tutorial for students who have never used these applications before. I have updated it for versions Most PCBs for students are made in-house using photomasks printed directly from PCB Editor; this needs considerable manipulation of the colours and cxdence because PCB Editor was not cadrnce for such an old-fashioned process!

Many good introductions to Capture and PSpice can be found on the web and in textbooks. Suggestions for improving them would of course be welcome too. The tutorial is based on my introductory course on PCB design. Right-click on a design file with extension.
I teach several courses that use different applications in the Cadence OrCAD suite and have collected the handouts here.
