Overview OrCAD ® Library Builder provides advanced and highly automated capabilities for quickly creating part symbols and footprints for OrCAD PCB schematics and layouts. It virtually eliminates errors caused by manual processes, improving design quality and reducing rework. Building PCB libraries of symbols and footprints has traditionally entailed a significant time investment using manual methods, which are prone to errors. As design cycles shrink and device pin count and complexity grow, manual methods place an unsus- tainable burden on the engineering team. Automated tools can help reduce PCB library development time and improve quality, allowing PCB design teams to focus on product differentiation. OrCAD Library Builder delivers the most advanced PDF datasheet extraction, schematic symbol creation, and PCB footprint/ land pattern automation. With OrCAD Library Builder, you can eliminate manual processes and work with your design team to create fully validated component libraries in a fraction of the time. Accelerating Your Workflow OrCAD Library Builder reduces down to just minutes the symbol and footprint creation processes that previously required hours, if not days, to complete. Purpose-built tools provide a single environment for extracting PDF data, managing and formatting pins, generating symbols, creating footprints, and validating outputs. Because the library creation process is automated, you get a dramatically accelerated workflow that delivers consistent, repeatable results. Transforming a historically difficult, repetitive, and error-prone task into an intelligent, automated process requires advanced technology. OrCAD Library Builder contains industry-leading PDF data extraction technology that can pull component data from any PDF datasheet. OrCAD Library Builder can intelligently extract pin data from common datasheet elements such as: BGA maps, SOIC diagrams, QFP packages, as well as standard pin tables. With this capability, you no longer have to spend time manually copying and pasting content. Correct by Construction OrCAD Library Builder ensures your libraries are built correctly the first time by automating error-prone tasks and providing a complete set of error-checking and reporting utilities. With tight integration between the symbol and footprint builders, you can run comprehensive checks to ensure that the symbols and footprints match. The tool identifies errors and inconsistencies immediately, saving time and reducing costly rework. You can also create templates with OrCAD Library Builder. By applying these templates to the library creation process, you can easily ensure that all symbols and footprints developed adhere to common standards.
