how to convert orcad schematic to pads schematic

Hi, we use Pads at my work but we often convert from Orcad .DNS files using the Pads built in convertor (paid extra from vendor I believe) maybe P-Cad has something similar, worthwhile checking. Alternatively I believe there are several programmes online that will convert Orcad files priced around $20-40, do a search on e-studio this may do what you want.

orcad schematics to pcad schematics

If you only need to transfer netlist you can use a PCB Navigator as a converting program. Navigator 5.1 supports Accel PCAD 2000,2001,2002,2003 & 2004.
Hope this helps .

russian to english schematic convertor pcad

In ORCAD u export the file as "PDF out" and import "PDF in" in PCAD (Note this is not Acrobat Reader PDF). This will help.

import orcad .dns schematics -cadence

Why do you say it is to design in ORCAD, when you have such a headache to convert your design?? Personally I would say stay away from any conversation , use one package and become master on it. It will be difficult first time then everything will fall in place. Also, I would not recommend to use ORCAD or PCAD both om them almost end of live. Why not to look at PADS?

right, just use only the netlist, export it to the format needed and do forward/backward ECO if needed.

we use orcad for schematics (compatibility is an issue) and our designers use mentor graphics for pcb.

converting from one software to another from time to time probably will give you problems.
