Hello every one
how can i change the shape of the line from pending curve to straight shape in order to dealing with smd chips in orcad layout 10.3
from this shape --------) to this shape --------|
square polygon copper pours over the trace ends?
Are you doing this for SMD solder yield? Or, is this a multi-gigahertz routing practice I just found out about a month ago?
In reply to Robert Finley:
yes. i do it before but you need to change the line width at the ending side, really it take alot tıme from me
please send me yours email in order to send a picture to descrıbe the problem more clearly
In reply to moayed:
Try selecting and deselecting "Connect line endcaps" under the Setup-Design Parameters-Display menu. See if that does the trick for you.
In reply to budnoel:
I was wondering why other Microwave/RF designers didn't suggest this, then I realized...
That option doesn't appear to give us the option to plot artwork with a square draw. It does speed up display redraws.
Oh. That problem.
Have you discovered the "Neck Mode" option that shows up while you are editing clines?
You'll have to set the width of the trace you want to use in this "neck mode" in Constraint manager. But, it works really well.
So in this case i need to upgrade to cadence orcad 16.5
because this option doesn't appear in my version orcad 16
thank you very much for this
Sorry about that. I'm not familiar with Orcad features as I own an Allegro seat.
You could choose a thinner trace and add polygon fills to beef it up.
I feel your pain on the feature problem. With PADS LS, net class isn't available. Have to upgrade to the ES flow.
I have to ask. What does the ground fill between the pads do? Can you suppress that?
