Component information system


This chapter introduces component information system as a part management system that is available as an option for use with OrCAD Capture. It helps manage part properties, including part properties required at each step in the printed circuit board design process, from implementation through manufacturing, and to integrate into a flow for schematic design, simulation tests, and printed circuit board layout.
