Arrow Electronics and Cadence Launch Online Tool to Accelerate PCB Design Process


Reading time ( words)

Arrow Electronics and Cadence Design Systems, Inc. have expanded their ongoing collaboration, launching the Cadence OrCAD Entrepreneur package for OrCAD Capture Cloud on the Arrow.com design center. The new software tool suite cuts in half the time that it takes a designer to move from design to prototype, when compared to the traditional process of manually designing and simulating across separate systems.

“Thousands of design engineers already use OrCAD Capture Cloud on Arrow.com,” said Arrow Chief Digital Officer Matt Anderson. “OrCAD Entrepreneur goes even further, helping engineers bring their design ideas to life more quickly and easily than ever before. Arrow looks forward to continuing our successful collaboration with Cadence, and to bringing cutting-edge online design tools like OrCAD Entrepreneur to the engineers who rely on our digital platform.”

Designers use OrCAD Entrepreneur to capture their system-level design in the familiar OrCAD Capture Cloud design environment, which is accessible directly from Arrow.com. They can then download the design onto their desktop for simulation and layout—moving seamlessly from design through advanced circuit simulation and PCB layout, and all the way to manufacturing.

From within the cloud-enabled design environment, designers can also select from existing Arrow reference designs, pick components from the existing Arrow parts library and generate a complete bill of materials, all in one seamless flow. Designers can also print, share and upload new designs.

“We are pleased to achieve this latest milestone in our ongoing collaboration with Arrow,” said Tom Beckley, senior vice president and general manager, Custom IC & PCB Group at Cadence. “By more tightly coupling OrCAD Capture Cloud with Arrow’s extensive online resources and further streamlining the PCB design flow, OrCAD Entrepreneur advances Cadence’s System Design Enablement strategy and helps engineers bring differentiated products to market more efficiently.”

Happy Anniversary, Gerber Format: Looking Ahead to Digital Innovation

01/25/2019 | Patrick McGoff, Mentor, a Siemens business
This year, we celebrate the 55th anniversary of the introduction of the Gerber machine language format. We can thank H. Joseph Gerber, the man who took manual PCB design to the next level with the automated photoplotter, for giving us this format in 1964. Gerber immigrated to the United States in 1940 with his mother following the death of his father during the Holocaust. Gerber started Gerber Scientific Instrument Company in 1948 to commercialize his first patented invention—the variable scale.
