How to find pre-made PCB footprints in OrCAD Allegro PCB Editor

Quick Summary

Create a through-hole footprint to eventually place on your printed circuit board (PCB) in Cadence OrCAD / Allegro PCB Editor 17.2. Enjoy!

Tutorial Series Description

Have you been looking for the best tool to design simple digital or analog electronics printed circuit boards for free? Even more so, have you tried learning OrCAD for a circuit design, but it was too hard to learn without help?

Wouldn’t it be great if there were short videos, created by experienced users, with tutorials on PCB and schematic design using Cadence’s OrCAD or PSPICE software? If you are looking for an in-depth walkthrough of the printed circuit board (PCB) design process and an introduction on how to use OrCAD Capture and PCB Editor, look no further.

In this video series, you will use OrCAD Lite 17.2 to test out and learn the most important features of OrCAD Capture CIS, PSPICE, and PCB Editor for free.

The Circuit Design You Will Be Creating

This introductory PCB tutorial series shows you how to create a simple circuit design: A two-layer asynchronous multivibrator analog circuit with 2 transistors, 4 resistors, 2 capacitors, 2 LEDs, and 2 connectors.

The above circuit design has just the right amount of simplicity for you to focus on the electronics engineering design process, but enough variety to demonstrate most of the skills you need to create through-hole and surface-mount footprints and finish a standard printed circuit board hardware design.

The Cadence OrCAD suite has everything you will need for PCB circuit design, simulation and implementation of electronic designs and is great for undergraduate sophomore, junior and senior students in electrical engineering programs at any university or college.

Once you learn OrCAD / Allegro, you can learn any other PCB design software, quickly and easily. OrCAD and Allegro are industry leading PCB design software for large scale printed circuit board designs. Every serious electronics design engineer should know OrCAD to be competitive in major hardware design engineering within the computer tech industry.
