    Does any know of a good book that covers Orcad Capture and PCB design with Orcad?

    Cheers

    The best I have seen is the OrCAD manuals that ship with the OrCAD software package. Do you not have these manuals, or are they not suitable for your needs?

    I will also move this to the Electronic Resources forum where this is better suited.

    I haven't even looked at those, but what was looking for something that
    also covered good PCB design (layout technique etc) with Orcad?
    I took a quick look through the help but couldn't find the documents, where
    abouts would they be stored?
    Thanks

    What iam also looking for is a book that explains how to size tracks (basic stuff) but also delves into some of the tougher issues? Basically i have a good knowledge of electronics but i have never laid out a PCB and the software iam using is ORCAD.

    Thanks

    Are you working with analogue or digital boards? There are books that cover analogue layout techniques and separate ones that cover high-speed digital boards. I have never seen ones that specifically cover OrCAD though.

    The way we usually go about it is to get a good analogue and digital layout books, read through them and then do the layout with the chosen CAD package, referring to the manual for references and how to do things as required.

    does anyone who knows a good reference book in PCB design in general (not just for a specific software package)?

    There is one new one that just came out... "Complete PCB Design Using OrCAD Capture and Layout." The book provides an introduction to PCB design including: design for signal integrity (high speed stuff and EMI etc) and design for manufacturing (footprint design and layer stackup etc), and it describes how to 'do it' using the OrCAD design suite. It also comes with the 10.5 Demo CD and some design examples.
