OrCAD Panel Editor

Intelligent panel design and documentation

What is OrCAD Panel Editor?

OrCAD® Panel Editor is a PCB assembly (“array”) panel design tool that intelligently automates the panel definition and documentation process to produce simple or complex PCB assembly panels in a fraction of the time versus traditional manual methods. Developed with a highly intuitive style and use-model, OrCAD Panel Editor enables you to quickly design your panel and create the manufacturing drawings that drive fabrication and assembly.

Product Highlights

Automatic Array Creation

Using imported, intelligent OrCAD PCB design data, automatically create panel arrays (step and repeat) of PCBs on a panel documentation drawing

Streamline Drawing Creation

Quickly place top, bottom, drill pattern, or custom panel arrays on a drawing, as well as drill charts, note blocks, mill and V-score details

Panel Awareness

Panel-level Drill and Coordinate charts are reflective of all the PCBs in a panel and define all components, hole sizes, locations, symbols, and quantities for the entire panel

Design-driven Documentation

Import CAD data to drive the panel documentation creation process, while additional external content may be imported and incorporated in the drawings

Engineering Change Orders (ECOs)

Perform fast engineering change orders (ECOs) by refreshing only the source CAD data, as all panel drawing elements remain linked to that source data

Panel Wizards

Panel drawing detail wizards use existing PCB and NC milling data to automatically apply the NC milling to all the PCBs within the panel
