Connecting ZofzPCB and a schematic editor or viewer
Even better way to spot errors - browse the PCB and let your schematic tool show the corresponding object.
Or browse the schematic and let the ZofzPCB show you the corresponding object on the PCB.
ZofzPCB recognizes components, pins, nets. It is done by loading IPC-356 test-points file.
ZofzPCB exposes two programmatic interfaces. 1.file based and 2.WM_COPYDATA
OrCad Capture / (lite) must be installed on the system. Version 15 was used to create the script. Versions above are known to be not compatible.
It is advised to update the OrCad using the latest patches.
Standard ZofzPCB must be installed, via installer. The portable build will not be found by the script.
Unzip the capCrossProbe.zip file to a folder
Run CopyFiles.bat (double-click on it)
Script may ask for allowance to create directory, overwrite files. Normally just press any key.
Instalation is finished.
How to run...
Open an Orcad dsn file.
Start Cross Probe
Script ask you to select previously zofzproj created file. Choose the correct one
Once zofzproj file is opened you can start bidirectional crossprobe.
