Highlights • Ensure component data integrity by validating properties against a corporate database. For example, a simple schematic modification such as changing the value of a resistor without changing the corresponding footprint and/ or part number can result in a mismatch between the schematic, PCB layout, and BOM. Such a mismatch design can easily result in an expensive, unnecessary board re-spin. • Optimize part selection to help meet project milestones and goals. For example, inadver- tently identifying and utilizing an obsolete component or one with a long lead-time or incorrect supplier can cause an unplanned, costly delay. All too often, these problems aren't discovered until the product is on the verge of being manufactured. • Promote the use of company preferred components to help meet corporate initiatives and goals. For example, without access to cost or corporate initiative information during the design stage, it's easy to introduce higher- priced parts and miss the opportunity to use equivalent lower-cost substitutes from the same or alternate supplier. • Reuse known good part data to help eliminate duplicate effort and improve efficiency. For example, redundant or duplicate parts are often introduced into engineering libraries and corporate inventory when functionally equivalent parts are already available and in stock. OrCAD CIS provides easy access to your company's component databases and part information OrCAD CIS Powerful component data management OrCAD ® CIS (Component Information System) provides easy access to your company's component databases and part information. Seamlessly integrated within OrCAD Capture, OrCAD CIS greatly enhances the part selection and verifi- cation process and significantly boosts your productivity by reducing the amount of time spent researching for parts or reusing existing parts, eliminating manual entry of part information, and maintaining synchronization of component data. Overview OrCAD CIS is a key part of the OrCAD schematic design entry solution. Integrated into corporate databases, you can automatically synchronize and validate exter- nally sourced component data with the schematic design
