DRV8880: CAD files for ORCAD?

Part Number: DRV8880
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TIDA-00830, DRV8800

Hi Team,

Cusstomer wants to use our DRV8880 but we seems not providing ORCAD files for customer. 

I found we have Altimum files in TIDA-00830.

Can any expert please help to convert it to ORCAD for us?

Altimum is not a standard tool in sales office.



  • Hi Andrew,

    We are assuming the customer would like the DRV8880 schematic and layout footprint in ORCAD.

    This is available at the Quality and Packaging tab of the DRV8800 product folder ( www.ti.com/.../pinout-quality )

    Scroll down to find the CAD/CAE symbols and follow the instructions to the right of the symbols. The instructions detail how to convert the .bxl files into leading EDA CAD/CAE design tools.
  • Hi Rick,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    The tool is not useful especially when you don't have Altimum installed. It requires library to convert for you.
    I followed, and it doesn't work because I don't have Altimum.
    If you have Altimum installed, could you please just convert the entire schematics from that TI Ref Design?
    Customer doesn't want to redraw everything, thanks!
