OrCAD Capture Course Description

CA Design’s two-day OrCAD Capture course is suited for both new and experienced users. As always, we teach real world applications of the software, with work-arounds when they’re needed and how to optimize it’s strong points. We teach schematic capture in context with the entire board design process, not as an isolated tool. (For instance, how does your symbol library affect OrCAD Capture?)
