    OrCAD Capture rigid flex

    Hi
    I have a silly question regarding Capture. I am making a rigid flex board where i have only a 20pin connector on rigid PCB and
    the flex PCB will be having only these conductors coming from this 20 pin connector. These conductors end up with fingers which have to be
    reflow soldered onto some other PCB. So was wondering,
    Click image for larger version.

    Is that it in capture? I have an idea pcb designer has to be setup for flex board. But what else is needed in capture?
    Thanks

    Re: OrCAD Capture rigid flex

    You'll need a connector on the left side as well. The flex/PCB footprint for the connector on the left will be the fingers.

    Thanks for reply, but could not find any connector with that name.

    Then you will need to create one.
