The introduction of Apps in the new Cadence OrCAD Capture Marketplace in the 16.5 release brings a new level of feature customization to the designer in a proven, successful, delivery model. But what does this “design by plug-in” or “app-based” model really mean for users?Apps, short for applications, are additional software designed to perform specific tasks. There are a vast array of design flows out there, making it impossible for any out-of-the-box CAD tool to best serve everyone. Your needs are likely different from those of a designer at another company, or even the needs of your co-workers. Apps are beneficial because:• They provide additional functionality • You only pay for the features you need• They are accessible instantly • They will foster a community of development• You Can Try Them For Free!I highly encourage you to take advantage of that last point. Many of the apps in the OrCAD Capture Marketplace have free trials available, and beyond that, many of the apps are free.

Other Important InfoAccessing your downloaded apps in OrCAD Capture requires you to have an open design file. Your apps can be found under the accessories tab. The accessories tab is context sensitive so selecting the project browser or the schematic diagram will reveal different apps.

As always, I look forward to all who share their experiences with these new Apps!

Just Orcad? How about Design Entry HDL users?
At this point in time, the apps are for the OrCAD products. Of course, there are SKILL, Perl, etc. programs available for DEHDL.
My Capture is on a machine that is not connected to the internet. Can I still get access to the apps? Maybe I can download them on an internet connected machine and transfer them? Any clues?
You can "try" to download/copy/install from another PC connected to the internet, but the app interface is built into Capture. If you have issues, please contact our Customer Support team at http://support.cadence.com.

Dear Sir/Madam. I got a job that requires knowledge on Orcad which I don't have. my questions are: 1. Is it possible to get an evaluation license so I'll be able to learn to prepare my self (they'll accept only trained person so I must learn before)? 2. Can I get list of prices and an address in Israel, so I'll be able to communicate direct? Note: it is difficault to use this form for detailed questions. Thanks in advance. Yoash
