With the 16.6 release, you now have the capability of utilizing the PCB SI tools (SigXP) to work with topologies and constraints in the OrCAD Capture environment.Capturing constraints early in design cycle is important for the following reasons:
Read on for more details…
Here is an overview of the Capture – SI flow:
SI Model Management (associate models to schematic instances)• Setting up SI Model Libraries• Auto Generate Models for discrete components• Assign Models to Parts and PinsExplore Signals (associating explore signals and managing ECSets on schematic XNets)• Export XNET to Signal Explorer (SigXP)• Assigning topologies to schematic XNets• Validate topologies on schematic XNetsExport/Import ECSets (exporting/importing ECSet assignments from/to the schematic)• Export ECSets from the schematic to SI Expert• Import ECSets to the schematic from SI Expert• Export ECSets to physical layout• Import ECSet changes from physical layoutExport/Import with Allegro PCB Editor (taking the ECSet to/from Allegro Layout)• Netlisting to Allegro• Backannotating from AllegroThere are two methodologies for managing constraints:
