ORCAD is a schematic editor. In other words, it is a program that allows you to draw circuit schematics. The demo version that you have comes with a nice collection of parts libraries with parts that you are likely to use in student assignments and student laboratory exercises. PSPICE is an electrical simulator that allows you to simulate the operation of the circuits whose schematics you prepared using ORCAD. This allows students to check for correct circuit operation even before they actually construct the circuit in the lab. The demo version of ORCAD allows you to run PSPICE without even leaving the ORCAD user interface. You can start by clicking on START on PC Desktop and selecting Software (Old) .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
