Last year Cadence announced the OrCAD Capture Marketplace, a web-based capability within the OrCAD Capture environment that provides an on-line store with free and paid plug-in tools, or "apps." Since then the list of available apps for OrCAD Capture and OrCAD PCB Editor has grown to 22, and a free trial period is available for most of the paid apps.
Apps provide a new way to bring new functionality to PCB designers. They're available instantly -- no need to wait for the next software release. You select only the features you need, and you don't have to pay for new capabilities you don't need. And, over time, a community will emerge in which apps will come from a variety of sources.
Accessing an app is as easy as buying or downloading any on-line product (see below). Most paid apps, such as SymbolGen shown below, let you either buy the app outright or click "trial" to give it a test drive for free. If you decide to purchase the app after the trial period, a new app installer is downloaded to turn the app on permanently.
A recent blog post by Jerry Grzenia provides a step-by-step guide on how to access apps from the OrCAD Capture environment. Below is a list of free and paid apps, with free trial periods noted for the paid apps. You need OrCAD version 16.5 or above to use them.

That's quite a list, and it will only grow over time. Happy designing!
