Connect your Cadence OrCAD© to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

pe4 OrCAD Connector to 3DEXPERIENCE


The pe4 OrCAD Connector to 3DEXPERIENCE enables you to connect the Cadence OrCAD© PCB platform to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and to publish ECAD design information and manufacturing data into the corporate system for making your development process efficient and consistent.
Information driven through the connector is available to the different stakeholders in the company like supply chain, procurement manufacturing or even sales, allowing them to make the right decisions based on the actual and correct information.

Design Data Management

The Design Data Management functionality of the connector allows hardware engineers to manage schematic and layout data side by side with additional non-innovation data like plots, manufacturing outputs or documentation in 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Functionality at a glance:
  • Save or release schematic and layout innovation data under process and access control of 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • Creation and management of additional data like pdf plots, manufacturing data or instruction documents together with the design documents
  • PLM collaboration with the engineering team or other stakeholders through team workspaces and projects
  • Version and revision control of the OrCAD engineering data
  • Support of access and process control provided through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • Access design data managed in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform directly through the CAD Tool

BOM Management

The BOM Management functionality of the connector allows hardware engineers to manage the electronic bill of material in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and even transfer early and preliminary bill of materials to the corporate system.

Functionality at a glance:
  • Staging view of the BOM before transfer to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to allow modification
  • Communicate BOMs even for early collaboration with other stakeholders
  • Verification of used parts in the design with status in 3DEXPERIENCE platform for early conflict verification
  • Cross probing between OrCAD Schematic and BOM
  • Replace corporate engineering parts with other corporate or vendor parts from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • Support for Schematic and Layout BOMs
  • Variant Support for Variant specific Bill of Materials
  • BOM scrubbing (e.g. removal of testpoints)and import of external partlist e.g. from a comma separated file

pe4 OrCAD Library Connector to 3DEXPERIENCE


The pe4 OrCAD Library Connector to 3DEXPERIENCE enriches your OrCAD CIS library with critical enterprise data from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
This allows designers to make smarter component choices early in the design process and shorten design time by synchronizing component data with the OrCAD CIS library

Functionality at a glance:
  • Bi-directional transfer of component information ensures that data is synchronized as changes are made in either the 3DEXPERIENCE platform or ECAD libraries
  • Designers can use native CAD tools to find PCB components and display corporate attributes
  • Enterprise users can use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to find CAD parts and display CAD parameters
  • Synchronize based on Library Central classes or Engineering Central Part types
  • Batch mode performs updates on periodic basis or as needed
  • Can be integrated into a new part introduction process or part change management process
