OrCAD Library Builder, easy as 1 2 3

OrCAD Library Builder provides the most advanced PDF datasheet extraction, intuitive symbol automation, IPC-driven land pattern generators, and comprehensive part verification technology to create schematic symbols, PCB footprints, and STEP models in a fraction of time versus manual methods.  Eliminating manual processes results in up to an 80% reduction in library creation time; especially for large or complex parts that require hours to build.


Example: An IPC-compliant 64 pin QFP footprint, 3D STEP model, and heterogeneous schematic symbol – complete with pin names and information – can be created from scratch in under four minutes!!!


Correct By Construction

Ensure your libraries are built correctly the first time by automating error-prone tasks and providing a complete set of error checking utilities

Symbol Creation

Save symbol generation time and errors by extracting datasheet specifications, formatting, and exporting to OrCAD Capture efficiently

IPC-7351 Compliant Footprints

Automatically build your footprints to IPC-7351 specifications straight from the vendors’ datasheet or define custom requirements

Symbol and Footprint Checking

Check to ensure symbol and footprint match easily with the ability to view symbol and footprints in one GUI and cross probe if necessary

3D-model Generation

Generate STEP models automatically from the footprint data, making it easy to build accurate mechanical models for 3D visualization

Accelerate Your Workflow

Accelerate workflow dramatically by providing a single unified environment for extracting PDF data, creating footprints, and validating outputs
