"Electrical Engineer"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can draw any schematic I want, as well as simulate, and make any changes all within the software.

What do you dislike?

I do not appreciate the fact that it is always quitting on me. Extremely frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Allow ample time to actually have time for the software to crash on you. Also, save your files in one folder for each project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for drawing schematics of circuits and simulating them, before going into the lab.

"A reliable software to test your circuit"

What do you like best?

I like this software mainly because it it so easy to use and even though I've had it taught in university I already taught myself how to use it and it is quite good and very accurate as I was drawing the electrical circuits in Orcad and then I was connecting the actual physical circuit and measuring the current and voltage values to compare them and see the difference between them but the errors are like non-existent. So, yes, I do recommend this software..

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about this software apart from maybe not having a 3D circuit model but it is not really necessary and I do like it in 2D as it just make it simpler and faster. So no complaints at all. I use it all the time and I just genuinely like it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saving more money because you don't really have to built the entire circuit to test some ideas for instance. You could just do the drawing in Orcad and then test everything in there and see the results. As simple as it is. Save more money, more time and do a better job when creating a new electrical circuit.

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

It's easy to design schematics and create BOM and check DRC rules.

What do you dislike?

Editing parts and editing page really takes time. It should be changed to make changes easily.
