OrCAD For Universities


Joining the Program

Simply buy or lease (or a mix of both options) a minimum of 20 licences of either 'Simulation' or 'Design + Simulation' (or a mix of both) and you qualify for university pricing, as per the schedule below.

It's that simple.

Licences can be shared amongst academic and teaching/support staff, lab PCs, research staff and even students.

Licences can be a mix of floating (served from Licence Server to users) or Fixed (locked to an individual PC's MAC address).

Terms of this offer

Program terms and conditions are simple:

  • licences may not be used for any purpose for which financial gain results (eg for paid consulting of design work).
  • the institution shall nominate a member of their staff as a 'Program Administrator', who will be their interface with ECADtools.
  • the institution shall nominate a member of their staff as a 'Tech Support' liaison (can be same as Program Administrator') to channel tech support queries to ECADtools.
  • training for institute teaching or support staff can be supplied as required, but may incur additional costs, depending on an institution's requirements.
  • ECADtools does not offer tech support to students.
