I would like to ask how to import a footprintfor sensor, from eagle to orcad ??
Is anyone how can help me ????????
The only option you may have is that eaglr footprints sometimes come in filename.bxl format. You can get a free / evaluation copy of Ultra LIbrarian that will read bxl fiormat and export it to OrCAD / Allegrro format. The alternative is to get the part datasheet and create the footprint in OrCAD / Allegro.
I read from a forum that if you export to protel pcb then it can import to orcad
How to import it to orcad ????
Btw is look like too difficult to create a footprint to orcad. (A new footprint is created to orcad layout??? )
Are you using OrCAD Layour or OrCAD PCB Editor ? You can import an old style Protel PCB into OrCAD Layout by File - Import.
Footprint creation in PCB Editor is straight forward. Here's a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfCM0Ho8IE0&list=TLJwzlgfsMFA7H0UPpKs1ZhqijqItvgriJ
