The Cadence OrCAD Entrepreneur package for OrCAD Capture Cloud

A software tool suite that aims to cut in half the time it takes a designer to move from design to prototype, when compared to manually designing and simulating across separate systems, has been launched by Arrow Electronics and Cadence Design Systems.

“Thousands of design engineers already use OrCAD Capture Cloud on,” said Arrow's chief digital officer, Matt Anderson. “OrCAD Entrepreneur goes even further, helping engineers bring their design ideas to life more quickly and easily than ever before.”

OrCAD Entrepreneur can apparently be used by designers to capture their system-level design in the familiar OrCAD Capture Cloud design environment, which is accessible directly from

Designers can then download the design onto their desktop for simulation and layout. The idea is that they can move seamlessly from design to advanced circuit simulation, PCB layout and manufacturing.

From within the cloud-enabled design environment, designers should be able to select from existing Arrow reference designs, pick components from the existing Arrow parts library and generate a complete bill of materials. The package should also enable users to print, share and upload new designs.

“We are pleased to achieve this latest milestone in our ongoing collaboration with Arrow,” said Tom Beckley, senior vice president and general manager at Cadence. “By more tightly coupling OrCAD Capture Cloud with Arrow’s extensive online resources and further streamlining the PCB design flow, OrCAD Entrepreneur advances Cadence’s System Design Enablement strategy and helps engineers bring differentiated products to market more efficiently.”
