inspectAR is an augmented reality PCB viewing tool that overlays circuit board design file information on a physical circuit board assembly. Being able to visually inspect a circuit board with its design information overlays enables faster and more efficient inspection, analysis, troubleshooting, and assembly. With inspectAR guidance, placing components on an unfinished or unmarked circuit board can be now done accurately and efficiently.
You can use inspectAR with all major EDA tools. inspectAR supports Cadence, Altium, Mentor, Zuken, Eagle, KiCAD, and more.
We support it all. Get started with inspectAR for free on iOS and Android devices, or start a 14-day free trial of our professional plan to get access to the full desktop tool, available for Windows and macOS.
Explore Your Boards
Filter by component type, search by reference designator, or tap the board itself. inspectAR displays dynamic overlays within an integrated environment that allows you to get work done faster and more accurately than ever before.
Access Smart Documentation
inspectAR enables board designers to create and distribute augmented reality powered support docs and guides. Users of all levels benefit from the approachable, detailed, method of engaging with support materials.
Information in Your Viewport
Eliminate the need to constantly switch between printed schematics, your EDA tool, loose components, and your board. inspectAR displays all of your information in one place so you can instantly check values, datasheets, connected nets, and component locations.

Licensing Methods & Terms
Methods | Terms
OrCAD uses a floating license model which allows purchased licenses to be shared amongst users (one active user per license available). This gives users the flexibility to best leverage their software and ensure consistent usage among potential users. The OrCAD license can be managed and purchased in a couple different ways depending on preference and needs of the user. Teams can mix and match these methods and terms to best suit their needs.
With this method a license is tied to the HOST (aka physical address) of a specific machine. This can be tied to a server or client machine depending on usage needs.
- Server: The license is hosted on a server using the servers physical address (HOST ID). User client machines can then connect to the server to access and check-out the license when in use. This allows licensing and access to be centrally managed. Users do need to be able to connect to the server to successfully check out a license with this method.
Ideal for: Mid to Large user teams that need to be able to easily share licenses and will primarily use license in location with access to a centralized license server.
- Computer Host ID: The license is tied to the physical address of the users computer (HOST ID or NIC card). The user can then access the license on their machine. No connectivity to an external server is required. This may limit the ability to share the license though as the users machine would need to be on the network and active to be shared.
Ideal for: Single / primary users who do not need usually need to share the license and want the flexibility and portability to access the software wherever they are.
Note: Standard license sharing is limited to a 1 mile radius from where the license is located (intended to cover a single site or campus). Broader sharing options are available (Nationwide and global). Contact us for details
OrCAD is offered in a perpetual or time-based licensing model. This provides users flexibility in how they plan to use and account for the software over time. Both license models include support and updates with initial purchase.
- Perpetual License: A perpetual license grants the license holder 99year access to the software (referred to as perpetual access). This license includes access to updates and support for 1year from the initial purchase. The user can then opt to renew their maintenance contract to continue receiving new updates and support going forward. If the user opts not renew maintenance the software will still function, it will just be locked at the last version they user was eligible for and they will not have direct access to technical support.
Ideal for: Users who plan to use the software for multiple projects.
- Time-based License: A time-based license grants the license holder access to the software for a specific period (1 year for time-based licenses placed through the store*). This license includes access to updates and support for the duration of the term. When the term expires the license and software is no longer available for use and another term must be purchased to continue access.
Ideal for: Users who plan to use the program for a specific project, need to bill the cost of the software to specific program or project, or have temporary capacity license needs.
